3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from MtGoat. Thanks! Pours a dark mostly clear amber with a lasting beige head. Smell is earthy hops, and creamy sweetness that reminds me of a lot of Flossmoor Station IPAs, but with a bit of a buttery smell too. Taste is earthy, tea, bitter grapefruit and some mustiness and dark caramel like malt. Medium body and normal carbonation with a moderate bitterness to it in the finish. Pretty enjoyable in all and has a bit "darker" flavor than many IPAs I’ve had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Redbones. Light copper in color with some orange hues. Small off white head. Aroma of moderate citrus- grapefruit with some pine, and some biscuit and light toasted malts. Hops in the flavor are moderately assertive- grapefruit, some pine, over a full malt backbone for the style- moderate to aggressive bitterness. A solid IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Short off white head produced little lacing over a somewhat hazy golden to brown brew.
Aroma of grapefruit and citrus hit first with some hoppie undertones.
Medium bodied with refreshing carbonation. The hops didn’t hit me in the first sip but a second try had a nice, if short, shot of the bitter hops. Somewhat sweet at the beginning with that lovely floral in the middle.
Very refreshing. A brew that is great in its balance rather than any distinguishing feature.

Very nice IPA. I may be a bit inflated here. In any case, good strong hops on the nose and strong bitterness throughout. Good east coast IPA.
