4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drink within 90 days of May 23, 2013. Served in Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a hazy amber with a white, creamy two-finger head that settles into a nice frothy cap. Nice lacing and legs. Rich smell of grapefruit rind and pine. Citrus pith strikes the palate first and finishes with a heaping dose of pine. Sweet malt backbone balances the bitterness nicely. Medium body with lively carbonation. A superbly crafted IPA that gives the west coast IPAs a run for their money!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at SLL tasting and 500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow capped with a thick layer of soapy bubbles. Aroma is fresh, and hoppy. Zesty citrus, floral hops, peach skin, grass, and, pine. Smooth vibrant hop flavors over a bed of fresh grain...zesty lemon and grapefruit, juicy fruit, herbs, and flowers . Soft, dry, crisp feel - drinks lighter than the ABV would suggest.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampler (8oz pours?) from Appalachian Vintners. Orange copper pour with an off-white head. Terrific nose. Very hoppy. Clean. Sweet fruit and light sweet malts. Taste is of citrus & pine and light sweet malts. Finishes tangy bittersweet, slightly to the sweet side. The blend is very well done. This is very very tasty. 16.2

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very piney, some citrus but not nearly as much as one would expect from a new england IPA, this is more Pacific northwestern. Smells funky, but not skunky, very smooth, crisp mouthfeel, very crushable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange pour, white head. Nose is grapefruit, hop resin, piney. Taste is grapefruit, other citrus, hop oils. Oily mouthfeel with a bitter finish. My first thought was this is very much like a west coast IPA, so it was no surprise reading the description. Thanks Thim!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at Caps & Taps. It pours a lightly hazed yellow/orange color with a thick white head. The aroma has soft melon and peach with hints of flowers and dank. Nice. The flavor has some strong hop spice along with the peach, pine and some grapefruit. Definitely more spicy and dank than the fruity aroma. Soft, creamy mouthfeel and well carbonated. It has a light graham cracker malt character in the background supporting a pretty dry beer with strong spicy bitterness. A bit more bitter than I like my IPA’s, but this one was very strong in every other category.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
28 June 2016, tap. Yellow and a tad hazy/dirty. Nose is sweet, orange, grapefruit, lemon citrus. Med body and mildly fizzy. Dry citrus and mildly malty. I think an east coast IPA should be sweeter and a bit more body. But this is a "blend." Still, very good.
