3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brew is a clear orange-gold color with a medium bone white head that recedes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of herbal hops, malt and citrus fruits. The finish is moderately hoppy with a fruity aftertaste. Not exactly "epic’, but not bad either.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a pint glass. Color is a cloudy amber. Aroma is mild but has floral hops. Flavor is light bready malts at the start and turns into a hoppier finish. Palate is light bodied and has a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall a good IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clear amber beer with a decent creamy head that sticks around and leaves lace. Smells of piney hops, a bit of citrus, and some caramel malt. Flavor is not so much hop flavor as crystal malt, with a decent dose of bitterness to finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Pours a murky orange color; fine-bubbled off-white head with solid lacing. Dank, sweet and orangey aroma; amarillo shows through, along with some candied sweetness and a bit of alcohol. Muddled but tasty, in a phrase. Medium-full body, modest CO2. Chewy candied maltiness, with the orange character running up against that juicy orange hop note; lightly warming, a slight coarseness in the presentation, but overall a delicious (if muddled) IPA. Seems bulkier than 6.5%, but that’s mostly residual sweetness. Medium-length finish: toasty, citrusy, a bit sweet.

Can... Poured golden with a white head. Very sweet, like hop candy. Slightly floral, sweet tart-like yeast esters, malty sweetness, dry carbonated palate, hoppy finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
dark clear peach body, looks good, off white head that doesn’t last, not much going on there... the nose changes quite a bit, very complex, but sometimes its great other times bad, the nice notes are oranges with some really mellow dank notes, other times I smells like vomit... the taste is hot dank, a bit spicy with some pine hops, a total malt backbone but its not sweet, just sticky malt, not really successful... I’d pass on this

Nice beer! Good piney hops, grassy notes, light spice, caramel, and crackers. Flavor has a pretty good hop bite, good resinous flavor, nice citrus peel, overall a good beer.
