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

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy of bu11zeye. The pour reveals a clear orange color with a thin white head. The aroma is appealing, the hops have a resinous, citrusy quality and some malt is also present. The flavor also has the citrusy, resinous hops and malt but it suffers from the lack of carbonation, it feels flat and that’s too bad since this IPA has a lot of potentieal.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; pours a caramelly-orange with a creamy, off white head. Aroma was very caramelly; some grass, citrus and herbal elements Flavor had a caramel and biscuit backbone; earthy bitterness, although it was pretty minimal for the style. It was easy drinking, but just not enough bitterness to make it a good example for the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle by way of riversideAK... poured a hazy dark copper color. very rich looking with an off white head and a bit of lacing. initial blast of floral and piney hops leaves quickly and leaves me wanting more. there’s also notes of caramel and grapefruit. flavor is caramel and ruby red grapefruit as well. it has a slight bitter dry finish. medium body with a slightly creamy texture. nice find...

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.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium head and good lacing. Nice hoppy aroma thats mostly citrus and some pine. Taste is hops dominated with a nice up-front punch of grapefruit, with a citrus/pine body and a lightly bitter finish. Smooth drinking and well crafted.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My favorite of the samples. This poured an amber with a big foamy head. The aroma was citrus with a touch of pine and sweet malt. The flavor was big on the pine and a touch of sweetness. All in all, pretty decent.
