3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The white hawk was on my wish list, so thank you Tom/After4ever for this one. It’s warm-golden with a huge, white and creamy head. The aroma is nicely hopped with notes of grass, resin and fruit. The flavour is slightly sweet and has a nice caramel foundation, notes of fruit, a lot of citrus, a bit of resin, a nice bitterness and it’s nicely balanced. It’s a tasty brew, that needs "the little extra" to become more than just that. 2022

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured a hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of sweet carmel with just a hint of citrus. Palate is a bit to crisp for an IPA. Flavor of sweet carmel with a bitter finish. Not at all impressive!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ home. Gusher though it doesn’t smell of an infection. Hazy, yellow orange appearance with a huge cream colored head. Sweet floral hoppy, honey, potpourri aroma. Somewhat bready, lightly toasty, a touch fruity, a little tangy, floral flavor. I really didn’t like this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Brother Tuckers. A nice amber pour with a pretty big white head with lots of lacing. Typcial IPA aromas of citrus, pine and malt. Flavor was smooth but pretty light on the hops. A good beer, but not great by any stretch.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, deep golden brew with a white, large, rocky head. Mostly lasting with spunky lacework.
The nose contains honey, evergreen, black pepper, whole grain rice and hearty white bread. Warmly bitter from start to finish. Numbing and pleasant experience.
Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Long, bitter finish!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured with a medium yellow color with a very small head. Hoppy piney aroma. Not as bitter/hoppy as other IPAs I’ve tasted. Somewhat of a sour aftertaste. Tastes of lemon, pine and citris. I’ll pass on this one in the future.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Very hoppy aroma to this golden/copper coloured beer with a nice white head. Taste is very hoppy with lots of grapefruit notes. Not like some American IPAs I’ve had recently in that it’s not a thick beer - this is more European. Very nice.
