3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Falconer’s Flight isn’t my favorite hop, but it shows fairly well in this beer. Spicy nose. Toasty malts up front; a little too sugary in the finish and aftertaste. Becomes slightly cloying and the moderate bitterness isn’t enough to cleave it off. Earthy hop notes.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Interesting little IPA here, definitely not the norm, but not bad. Aroma has some slight citrus, and a prominent dust/cereal vibe. Pours a light orange with a prominent white foam that lasts throughout. Taste is what sets this one apart. There is some noticeable malt complexity upfront. First comes that dusty/cereal flavor then for a brief second this tastes like a malty Irish red, and then the citrus hops finish off the beer. Nicely carbonated. Overall an interesting little IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Diverse bouquet of tangerine, lilly, and wheat bread. Clear orange, medium head, nice lacing. Flavor is lilly and grain husk, non-citrus. Is this from Hawaii? Husky, but that gives it character. Solid bitterness, as much from the malt/grain as the hops. An holistic IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a nice orange/golden color. little to no head. aroma strong of hops and minor hint of citrus. taste is hopful of flavor, slight indication of a malt in there. As I drink through I get more of a hop upfront and malt in the after taste, which transitions nicely in the mouth (thats what she said - Michael Scott)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice easy drinking IPA. Good malt character and hops additions. I was impressed this can gave off such great hops aroma with no can aroma.

(12oz can thanks to JJFoodie) clear amber pour with creamy tan head. Nose is malty, citrus hops, a tiny bit dank, and pine. Taste of pine, bitter grapefruit, and a little oniony as well.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: This could have been good, but it was way too musty hopped. Tasted like wet hop mush on the floor of the hop storage cooler. It was too thick in this way and it overpowered everything. I like hops, but something was out of balance with this one.
