3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy dark amber colour with a big creamy off white head. Aroma is of caramel malts, citrus fruits (grapefruit, pineapple), floral hops and pine. Taste is not that sweet but the bitterness is quite nice and slowly intensifies. Creamy mouth feel, lively carbonation, and medium bodied. Overall a very nice IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Ales By Mail; clear copper pour with a frothy beige head, aroma has freshly mown grass and assertive pine, taste is like a pine cone party, very pine forward with a backbone action consisting mostly of pine, imagine being hit with a Christmas tree and the baubles are mangos, the IUB’s are coming in strong, a pheasant experience.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma and flavor is like when you cut wet two by fours. The wood is ok but that green acidic nature is not good. Killed the beer.

22 bomber to cervoise. Pours cloudy deep orange gold. Head is foamy, dissipates to ring. Aroma of fresh hops, resin, pine, dank, biscuit and citrus peel. Taste has malty caramel and biscuit backbone. Finish is bitter and sour. Lots of sativa and resin. Mother Earth never fails to deliver the MF?ing hops!

Bottle. Clear amber liquid with medium white head. Aroma of plastic, rubber, hard bread, light citrus, earth and burnt electronics.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Average SD IPA 6.99 bottle 22oz. Typical average use of high bittering hops with no real malt thing. But ok on the not real big malt things cuz hops are supposed to be predominate. They are but nothing overly special.

Got at Costco or big warehouse store...not a fan at all. Super rubber nose, flavor of harshe astringent bitterness. Seem like there was no thought into brew,,,just add tns of nelson cuz that’s the big name. Needs balance.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fair at best. Slight rubber tire aroma. Pretty bitter but not good hop bitter. No bad stuff going on just a strange hop balance with the aroma and flavor.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Thanks to Chris H. Citrus/pine mix, floor wax, dank and stanky nose. Caramel is big right away, overripe dates, moderate fruity sweetness, smooth moderately sweet caramelly finish. Medium body. Caramel certainly dominates this one.
