Thanks James (Mr. Tampa Pourhouse). 12oz bottle pours up clear deep gold with off white head. The aroma is sweet and estery with firm pine hops and flowery perfume notes peaking out here and there. The taste has equal amounts of sweet malts and pine hop bitterness with lesser amounts of floweriness around the edges from the floral hop addition. Nice IPA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Captain Easy’s Gourmet.
Aroma: The nose is light with bits of citrus, light malt sweetness, and a slightly off vegetal note.
Appearance: It pours a hazy amber-orange color with a large, pillowy, off-white head. Excellent head retention.
Taste: The bitterness is forward and lasting. The bitterness is the most prominent feature and lacking malt balance. There is a bit of orange, pine resin, and a touch of caramel malt.
Palate: Medium bodied with lots of softer carbonation leading to a long, bitter finish.
Overall: It comes across as a bit harsh and one dimensional. Mind you it isn’t terrible, it’s just not outstanding in a rather crowded field. Not worth going out of your way for.
