3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from Ed5388, thanks slappy. Poured an alright looking chill hazed orangey-amber with a smaller mostly white foamy head. Aroma is pretty nice, fruity, pineapple, passion fruit, light citrus, vanilla and toast. Medium to fuller mouthfeel with softer carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor isn’t as good as the aroma, notes of grassy hops, old tropical fruits, citrus rinds. Okay overall.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
No BOD. Pours a cloudy orange amber. Outstanding head volume, lacing and retention.
Very nice nose of tropical (mango, pineapple) hops, a hint of pine, biscuit malt and a rye like spicy undertone.
Heavy light body with a weak smoothness. Almost normal carbonation with a very slight effervescence in the finish.
The flavor profile is below average. It is a quite intense off flavored grapefruit rind with no trace of balancing malt. The middle is a continuation of the poor flavor as is the finish. Moderate bitterness.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 12oz bottle, purchased from Habersham in Savannah on 2/23/15. Completely hazy amber color. Bigger off-white kind of airy head. Leaves good reaches of lace. Lots of pale particles in the body. First sip impression: brett infection. Tastes bright, citrusy, tart and spicy, in a brett way. Very dry taste, chalky finish. Bigger bitter taste, sort of astringent. Light to moderate sweet. Moderate tart. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Very lightly slick texture, finishes dry. Besides some mild caramel malt and a touch of grapefruit/floral/spicy hop, I can’t really get anything besides the brett (not in a good way). Very dusty-tasting too, some metallic; definitely does not taste fresh. Pretty harsh; hard to drink. Unfortunate, as I really enjoyed the Blind Pirate and had high hopes for this IPA. This potentially could been avoided if the brewery dated their bottles. I got as far as I could, then dumped the rest down the drain.

Bottle from Steve out of his Christmas present. Thanks! Orange pour, some head. Sweet fruity aroma with some pine and some malty sweetness. Taste has sweet fruits, tangy pine and a decent caramel backbone. A bit lighter than expected. Solid and fairly tasty offering. 13.9
