2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle from Canal’s Rio Grande. Poured a deep honey orange body with a huge ever growing foamy off white head. Aroma is honey, wild flowers, hint of lemon and lime. Flavor is the same along with honey topped toast. Body is bad, carbonation is so super fizzy that it’s almost hard to drink. This sucks, needs some QC on the carbonation issue.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy medium orange amber with a small white head that leaves some tight lace. Bready malt and honey and medium citrus on the nose with grapefruit dominant. Lightly sweet with a medium bitterness (not really picking up 85 IBUs). Medium- slick with average carbonation. OK.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 mL bottle. Gold, just a film of head, and lots of sediment. Which is unexpected in an IPA. The aroma is far more impressive, with a nice blend of citrus and resin. The flavour is more restrained, with the hop flavours not separating themselves until near the end. Followed by bitterness, which is perhaps a 4/10 for the style. Not much to look at, but a passable IPA. There are much better ones out there, however.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 11/11/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep golden color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, floral, grass, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange zest, pine, homey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and robustness of citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice and pleasant IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. No quite as boldly hoppy as I expected, but definitely a nicely enjoyable offering otherwise.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, orange, slight yeast, hints of slight grassy, floral notes. Taste is a mix of grass, orange, grapefruit juice, touch of grain, finishing bitter, dry. Best brew they had.
