4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy dark copper under a foamy off-white head. Nose is an odd mix of clean floral hops and orange rind, and a kiss of mineral water. Flavor is a wonderful hop explosion, however, with loads of boozy caramalt and a sturdy bitter grassiness, followed by leafy hops and a touch of earthy grapefruit bitterness. Resounding hop bitterness through the finish that’s sturdy, but not too much. Really lovely. There’s almost like this chocolate-like sweetness on the undertone.

A bit hazy but that is too be expected with the dryhopped goodies in there. Was quite bitter but not the type of pure exhaust that some IIPAs provide. Nice golden brew and some lacing with a heavy pine scent. Was very enjoyable and would order again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Little Woodrow’s Midtown, 7/30/13
Aroma: The aroma has a nice mix of pine/resin, caramel, and some citrus
Appearance: It pours an amber color with some beige head and some sticky lacework
Flavor: The taste is light-medium sweet, caramel malts, and a medium-plus hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has some stickiness, and a pretty nice mouthfeel as well
I thought this was a pretty tasty example of the style. There is nothing crazy going on here, just a solid, well-made IIPA.

On tap at Boondoggles in Seabrook - light orange color and medium head with lacing. Hoppy orange citrus flavor with some sweetness to it and caramel overtones. Medium mouthfeel and average dry. Decent.

Tasted several times at the Katy Brewfest. A ton of earthy citrus and hugely bitter in all the right ways. I'm quickly becoming a big fan of Lone Pint. Loved this one so much that we went back for several additional pours. Had it alongside Southern Star's Valkyrie and preferred Lone Pint. Not sure why the other ratings are lower, but I have had inconsistent quality of other Lone Pint brews in the area. This sample was fresh as could be and delivered by the brewer himself. Can't wait to get it more regularly.

Slightly hazy orange with a nice white head. Nice lacing. Strong sweet orange aroma with some earth and caramel. Taste has a lot of sweet citrus up front followed by caramel and subtle pine in the finish. Medium body. A little on the sweet side overall, but still enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Holy Grail. Orange with a white head. The aroma is very sweet with some sugary orange notes really coming through strongly (smells about like the candied oranges you buy at the gas station). The flavor is more of the same. I get some circus peanut-like sweetness, as well as some oranges, light pine and biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad, but too sweet for my liking.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark amber with no head. Nose is mostly an earthy grainy with a slight bright grass and lemon. Mouth is a bit syrupy but with good creaminess. Taste is amazing. What a progression of flavors! It starts sweet with a candied apricot switching to a rich full east coast style ipa. But the finish!! Cleans up the malts and the hops sing loud!! Big grassy earthy hops. Nice surprise. I've never had anything from them. Great first impression.

Hazy copper color. Smallish white head. Very floral hop nose with pine, citrus and bitterness. It’s sticky on the palate with a resinous hoppy sweetness. Once you get used to it the some malty undertones show up on the backend. Very good brew.

Draft. Light gold and clear. Mild hop and malt nose. Nice malt backbone and very bitter floral hops. Slight sweetness on the end. Solid body. Nice. These guys are showing promise.
