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.

From a can purchased in Yosemite. Pours clear amber brown with a thin white head. Tastes like grapefruit, hops, slightly nutty and musky. Low/medium body and medium carbonation. Smells creamy, nutty, bready.

Having a beer that get the idea of hops is appearant in this beer, aroma of citrus and grass. The taste is hoppy but not all together malty, it doesn’t punch you in the face

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(En fût au Hooley’s Irish pub): Un nez goulûment juteux et miellé qui invite follement. En bouche c’est indéniablement machable et envahissant, les fruits sont presque en purée, la finale un brin rouillée et molle.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From 1 year old archive: Pours a great looking hazy amber with beige head. Aroma is filled with fruity esters with light caramel. Flavor is like malty wort but the hop profile doesn’t seem to be standing out to me but the hoppy bitter does, just kinda taste like a sweet tea.
