3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My wife brought this back from a trip to Rochester. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a huge foamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was grapefruit, lemon and a touch of caramel. The flavor was tangy and tart lemon, orange and grapefruit with undertones of bread and pepper. Medium finish. Medium body but a bit overcarbonated.

Smells funny. A little vanilla like with some heavy malts. Weird Ipa. Strange name too!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark golden with a big frothy white head. Aroma is a deep pine hop and sharp malts. Taste is big bitterness and small malt. I found it slightly off balance and over the top on the bitterness. Once your palate becomes fatigued, it becomes better.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle- Pours a hazy deep copper color with a good head that fades slowly tolots of lacing. Fairly mild aroma of citrus with a bit of sweet fruit and hint of spice. Taste is a nice tangy bite upfront with citrus, some caramenl sweetness with a nice bitterness through to a dry finish. Medium body, crisp and refreshing. Very good balance. Good IPA, not overly hopped, really hits the spot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
amber color. head is quite nice. 2, 3 finger foam. egg white soft peak like.
aroma has some citrusy piney notes. not very aromatic overall
malty biscuity flavors are prominent. some hops.
overall it’s not bad. wouldn’t mind drinking this end after end, but it’s rather subdued in flavors.

Bottle to glass mug. Pours a hazy copper / yellow color with an off white head that lingers, and good lacing. Pretty plain IPA flavors. Some hop bitterness, but not too much. A little too plain for me.
