3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can sent to me via mystery swap 2.0. Thanks! Pours dark amber in color with a light tan head. Smell is a little bit of a caramel and toffee fragrance, with a hint of a citrus background. Taste is a bit more on the piney, earthy side than the smell leads on. I also notice a hint of a lemon zest flavor coming through in the background. As the commercial description says, this satisfies me, a hop head, but I think it would be a good beer for a newby or wannabe hop head. A decent beer, in a can.

Extra from trade. Floral and pefumey. Light bitter. Not bad, not super exciting either.

Nice, balance IPA, with a prominent citrus / tropical hop flavor. Not overly sweet, though it does have a pretty nice malt body that is clean, and neutral and allows the hops to shine.

This is an incredibly good beer mainly because it’s so well done. It’s nothing insanely special in terms of ingredients but wow it’s just so well done i’d choose it over most other IPAs

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is an extremely well-made IPA. Strongly bitter yet still citrus-like on the tongue. Not one-dimensional. Underrated here.

Strong flavor for a flagship IPA - lots of west coast character in here. Some citrus, but mainly this is dominated by resiny hop bitterness. A nice everyday beer for hopheads.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can at home in Salisbury, CT. Pours mostly clear gold with a frothy white head. Inviting nose, with some pithy tangerine, orange, pale bread and melon. Light to medium sweet with some bitter pine needles and citrus rind. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly resinous on the finish with bitter grass and pine, dry melon, more orange and tangerine. Decent.

12 oz can shared by b3shine. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice bitter character, more earthy, grassy, toasted malt, light fruit character, solid enough ipa.
