Great hookup from largiari! Thanks. Pours a really pretty orange/amber color with a nice white head. Leaves good lacing. Aroma is wonderfully fruity and hoppy with citrus and honey notes throughout. Flavor is fruity and hoppy with good caramel. Smooth and rather delicious.

Bottle. A pale gold pour with light foam head. Pine hops with a malt balance. Good even taste through the finish. It was flavorful but a little average.

Thanks to jayli for hooking me up with this one. Pours hazy orange amber with a white head. Nose is malt, pine, tart white/ pink grapefruit, and a bit of apricot. Flavor is fizzy malt, orange/ citrus, and a bit of pine. Finishes with pine bite and apricot. Decent medium-bodied IPA.

Bottle courtesy of Largiari. Clear golden copper pour. Sweet hops are full on the nose. Some easy spice. Lightly watery flavor with easy hops. Finish is very small. A light IPA to be certain.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Cheesy, rusty, generic cheap IPA aroma. Stale and bland. The kind of aroma that gives IPAs a bad name. Flavor is mostly just bitter with too much crystal. About as generic as IPA gets.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pours a deep golden color with a nice head. Aroma is of hops, some floral, and a slight citrus. Taste is of hops, malts, and a little pine. Has a bitter aftertaste. Not a too bad IPA, but really nothing special.

On cask at Nerax’s event at Novare. Pours a golden hazy straw color with a distinct piney hop nose. Flavors are very clean, crisp, and typical over hopped delicious west coast style IPA. There’s a solid malt backbone at work here, but it’s all about the hops here. This was a nice little cask.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Below average IPA though still quite drinkable. Not as hop heavy as I would have liked being more on the side of a pale ale.
