3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12 oz). Clear golden/amber with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is floral with perfume, malt, light alcohol and resinous notes. Taste is slightly sweet with floral notes, perfume, resinous notes, light bitterness and warming from the alcohol. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Average IPA. Itís supposed to be really fresh, but itís drinking like an old IPA. A tad boring and not that drinkable for the style. Decent.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Hazy orange golden pour with a sticky white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, orange zest, caramel malts, and a touch of pine. Flavor is sticky and cloying. Heavy tropical fruit mixed with hot garbage. Unsettling to the stomach and I didnít want any more. Huge astringency in the finish and overly bitter. Somewhat watery also. Meh

Taste is pale and caramel malt backbone with a grapefruit bitterness. Thereís a little orange sweetness in there too.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I am intrigued by this beer boasting a new breed of hops, and made by a m-alt friendly brewer no less. Classic meaty grapefruit and sappy pine aroma. Glowing clear orange, all clear but for tiny suspension. By comparison the flavor is mellow: a long dry bitter citrus with a solid malty contrast. Slick body, not a palate slasher like some aggressive IPAs. Bottled 1-13-14, as fresh as can be.
