3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle shared by Dickinsonbeer. Pours a hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Very pleasant aroma of juicy grapefruit. Very mouthwatering actually. The flavor is a combination of fruity grapefruit and some bitter pith. Moderate-strong bitterness at the finish. Dries out at the finish as well. Nice, solid IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle thanks to Koopa for the bonus. Pours a slightly haze yellowish orange with a nice fluffy sticky meringue like white head- good lace. Aroma is nice citrus, fresh hops, light grass, good grapefruit pine and cedarwood oil. Flavor is oily, hop resin, pine sap, light earthy orange zest, cedar, almost woody hops but still good citrus light crackery dusty malts, and sappy tacky bitter finish. Fresh and real nice- somewhat unexpected. If I had access to this, Id buy this by the 6 pack or case depending on price. Nice stuff!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a transparent golden color with a thin white head. Hop aroma is somewhat restrained but shows some good citrus character. Great flavors on the palate with a hint of caramel malt sweetness to support the robust hop character. Bitterness on the palate is well-balanced and quite pleasant. I wish they sold this in my area.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. bottle. The pour yields a moderately dark, lightly hazy, orange-amber body with a small, foamy, off-white head. Settling to a thin film with a frothy, bubbly edge, the head leaves tall flares and looping archways of lacing on the glass. Aromas start out with bright, peppery grapefruit rind with some secondary lemon and grass. Toasted bread and lightly sweet toffee malts are mostly dry and well attenuated, providing just a bit of balancing sweetness. It’s very juicy at citrus driven, very much in the West Coast style. Flavors too are bitter and citrusy, loaded with grapefruit, orange, lemongrass, and a touch of pine. Toffee and some biscuit bring the counterpoint, keeping the bitterness in check, but staying well shy of anything resembling excessive sweetness. The palate is relatively dry and moderately bodied, supported by average carbonation, but finishing slightly on the papery side. Overall, it’s a very solid IPA with few flaws. A nice rebound after having Marble’s underwhelming oatmeal stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Hazy golden ale with a small, fluffy, white head. Excellent retention. The nose is mainly of citrus fruit rinds with mild pine, musk, biscuit malt and white bread components. Full-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is chock full of citrus pith bitterness flanked by bready malts and yeast. Finishes crisp and medium bitter. I really enjoyed this one.

Bottle from Liz. Pours light amber with a decent foamy off-white head. Aroma is citrus/catpee. Med body; foamy carb. Flavor is light caramel backbone with a lot of citrus hop. It is just another IPA, but it’s also just another great tasting IPA. Need all of those we can get.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Very fruity-almost grapy. Grape nuts? Not a huge fan of the hop profile, but I liked it well enough. Solid, but balanced bitterness. Enough aroma, more would be nice. Solid
