3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Glowing copper orange with an off white and strong head. Floral, herbs, cannabis and banana bread dominate this hop flavour for me, while the base beer feels bready this time around. Not my favourite hop aroma. Medium bitterness, balanced by a herbal and rounded off sweet side. Again a pleasant and low carbonated back bone from the base ipa. Good for the taste, not a fan of the aroma.

11.2 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orangey amber with a small beige head. Aroma of mild spicy hops, toasted nuts, some orange and citrus. Flavour of spicy hops, some toasted nuts and oranges - pretty similar to the nose but more pronounced. Finishes on the toasted nuts and quite spicy. Decent.

12oz bottle shared amongst friends. 2nd bottle we opened from the single hop series. This one had a little bit more bite to it, bitter wise and flavor wise. Probably not my favorite from the series but a good switch up thats for sure.

Orange to amber colour, large to moderate head, slightly off-white. Aroma of mildly spicy hops. The flavour has a distinct and "clean" bitterness, some resinous notes, but not much complexity.

Pours a hazy dark orange, small white head, nice webbed lacing patterns. Aromas of hay, lemon, malt, taste is as bland as aroma and ultra dry. Not a fan of magnum hops when they are alone. Lacking.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home. Aroma is zesty citrus, some earthy herbal notes. Sour grapefruit in the background. Flavour is a weird winey sourish applish something, quite bitter and dry. If this is magnum it’s not for me.
