3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.65 bottle. Amber clear. Good inviting caramel, strong green limey citrus hoppyness with a touch of earthy herbs. Full bodied, slightly stone fruity caramels. Clean, soft bitters and a piney finish. Enjoyable nicely balanced brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from SB. Pours clear amber with two fingers of off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, not a lot of hops, maybe hints of resin and fruit but it seems the journey across the Atlantic has caused most of those fresh hops to be not so fresh anymore... Taste is malty sweet at first followed by a somewhat stale bitter finish. Yeah, this is old... Body is light to medium and quite oily. It has all the qualities of a good beer, but unfortunately age has not been kind on this one...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark orange with a white head. This was not as hoppy as expedted, maybe the bottle was old? Grass, some herbal notes, light pineapple and citrus. Also light malt. Drinkable but not that impressive to be honest.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I'm such a sucker for fresh hopped ales. This is a very good one from Green Flash, on tap at WOB Savannah. Color leans toward amber, head is the color of the armpit areas of my old white t-shirts, but it tastes much, much better. Trust me.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a very nice, very tasty IPA. The aroma is unimpressive, but the flavor is pretty great citrus, bread, and pine.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent lighter orange with foamy off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid too; fresh Warrior hops with a pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid wet-hopped IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer has a giant off-white head and a slightly hazy orangeish brown color, and the aroma is a strong hoppy scent (specifically piney, resin, and floral) with a hint of buttery diacetyl. The taste is mildly bitter on the front, which does slowly increase, but the slight sourness and touch of umami blend together nicely for a taste that is well-balanced. The mouthfeel medium-full body, soft carbonation, a fairly abrupt yet slightly bitter finish, and a texture that is thick and buttery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at The Looking Glass, pours a clear dark amber with a thin head, the aroma has a good amount of citrus with some tropical fruit as well, not overpowering but nice and crisp, the flavor has a citrus front end with some sweetness mixed in the finish, really balanced, mouthfeel is nice, good stuff.
