3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good, but underwhelming. Had heard that this was amazing, and yes, it is nice and hoppy, but lacks proper balance. Perhaps fro me it just didn’t live up to the hype. All in all it is a good beer, but would not be showcased in my top local favourites.

473ml can. Golden pour, white head. Nice peppery citrus aroma, herbs and pine. Flavor is piney and dry, this is fantastic IPA, so glad I picked one up.

Bottle at tderoeck’s place. Herbal, floral, not much bitterness, or any exotic hops, pretty boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber pour with a soapy white head. Nice hoppy aroma with some toffee malt. Quite a hoppy flavor, lots of citrus and some grapefruit bitterness at the finish. Fairly thick texture, not overly carbonated.

A bit of malt in the nose and palate. Floral hops and just a lot of dry hoppy body. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle that shorted me 0.5 ounces. This is a piney and citrusy IPA that doesn’t skimp on the hops. Great aroma. Nice malt backbone, but the hops win the battle. A little bitter. Goes down smooth, nonetheless.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pineapple yellow color. Decent, medium lacing. Cloudy color, looks like juice. Sweats on the outside of the glass.
The aroma is woody as hell; lots of pine oil hops. Earthy sawdust malt. Smells a little bit like the inside of a woodshop class.
Taste is more flowery and bright; the wood is backed slightly by a spicy citrus (orange rind, tangerine) but it has a serious bite on the back end. The dirt and earth come to the forefront toward the end.
The feel is juicy and thick, with a great deal of chunkiness. This is a woody, earthy concoction, with citrus as a tertiary component. It’s not great-great, but it’s damn solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE 341 ML from bunget. Almost clear, amber, beige head. Strong hoppy aroma, sweet citrus, big malts too. Does not feel unfresh. The taste is sweet citrus, big, yet smooth and pleasant bitter finish. Very nice.
