3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep orange with a huge white head that leaves lacing all the way down the glass.
Smells mostly of hops of citrus and pine variety.
Good citrusy hop character up front rounding into a slight malt sweetness and a very bitter pine finish. The finish is really a bit overpowering even for the style.
Mouthfeel is light-medium with good carbonation level.
Not bad, but nothing special either especially for a $5 12 oz. The lingering aftertaste is really what makes this one a bit iffy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Copper hue, off-white frothy head and medium lacing. Delicious breakfast juice (grapefruit, passionfruit, banana, pawpaw, orange) aromas with a hint of biscuity malt at the end. Tiny glimpse of malt sweetness at the very front of the palate which leads into pine cone and oily resin. The malt returns in the mid palate, but it is interwoven with all the hops, creating a bitter caramel and long, dry finish. Well balanced meaning it isn't as bitter as it could be, which is a good thing. They've got it just right. My type of ipa. Classy beer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma very nice, floral, citrus, chemical but in a good way, resin, pine, everything, all the hoppy stuff but not overpowering. Taste is good, similar mix of tastes but seems balanced. Nice bitterness, bit caramel, grassy, tastes like a leaf. Think I was pissed at this stage, but it was very nice.
