3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Windy City liquor. Nice seasionable beer I’d prolly drink more of if I were consistently closer. Mild citrus aromas and flavors with a bit of grassy herbal touches to it. Pours cloudy dark orange with big white head. Finish is a little spicey pepper. Full bodied caramel malt and nice sweetness to balance it all out.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not my favorite IPA. Amber clear appearance. Pine and malt aroma. Too malt forward and unbalanced. No subtle flavors or interesting hop effects. Below average IPA.

0.33 bottle from Pivoteka Zagreb. Hazy amber with medium off-white head. Light hoppy fruit aromas, some bitterness. Not impressed, maybe not fresh enough?

22oz bottle pours a brown color with a bit of head. Total malt bomb. Hops balance nicely against the malt.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. A hazy, orange-colored beer topped by a small off-white head. The aroma is a tad too malty for my likings, some caramel and bread going on, but there’s also a good hoppyness, with resins and grapefruit. Lightly perfumed too. It’s quite dry and bitter on the palate, nicely carbonated, and with flavors of grapefruit, pine cones, resins and a flowery touch. Lasting bitter finish with orange zest and some flowery notes. Quite nice and easy drinkable, nothing special going on. 150625

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Color is a beautiful clear copper with fat lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, rum cake, butterscotch and pine resin. Flavor is flat and straightforward with medium bitterness and a strong toasted malt note. Definitely one of the more malt-heavy IPAs you will find in San Diego County. Not enough of the alpha acids to counteract the caramel, but enjoyable.
