3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Big hop fruit aroma, some sweetness and pine. Clear amber with a thick rich huge head. Candy floss flavour with a decent amount of bitterness. Sweetness really one sided, but still pleasant.

12 oz bottle following a Mendocino Imperial IPA. The mouthfeel is on par with the imperial, but otherwise inferior in every way to the more costly imperial alternative. Like the imperial, this IPA is not very hoppy or aggressive for style (OK with me), instead having a good bit of balancing malt. Still, a bit too tame for style.

Pretty standard grassy/soapy IPA. Not awful, just unbalanced. The texture is nice. There is an aftertaste but not an unpleasant one. It improves after initial sips.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Floral notes, slightly sweet aroma with some pine infused. Pours thick for an IPA with a foamy white head that laces well. Clear copper/orange color. Taste is solid with balanced hops leading, malt in the middle. Only Negative is a slightly too bitter after taste. But that is washed away by the next sip. Enjoy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a very light amber with a lasting off white head. Nice looking brew. The nose has light pine and floral notes. Not much else. The flavor has a very straight forward bitterness, bordering on overbearing. Lots of pine, slight resin, florals, and slight biscuit notes. Nice even mouthfeel with a medium body. The finish is very bitter and a little acridic.

Meh. There is not a lot going on here, besides a weird fizzyness and a decent texture. Flavor disappears almost completely when served slightly warmer than refrigerator temp, and the hops arenít showcased like they should be. Pass.

Clean citrus and resin aromas. Golden with a full white head. Bitter with balance from some bready caramel malts which meet the resinous hop notes. Medium bodied with a long bitter finish.

Very decent IPA though not exceptional. Cloudy gold appearance. Soapy foamy head. Smooth palate. Smells of grains and citrus. Tastes of earth, oranges and grass.

Really good overall...sessionable and tasty for sure. The pour is a bright copper and orange body with a thick off white head thats super fluffy. The nose is of pine, mild grapefruit and a big floral hop nose. A bit sweet, caramel, light grainyness with a bit of pine. Then grapefruit and medium bitterness takes over. Well balanced. overall, a nice little session brew.
