Thick body. Creamy mouth feel. So smooth. Rich sweet floral piney hop flavor that isn’t too bitter. Slightly tangy. Great beer!!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap pour. Clean rich gold with average to thin head. Toasted malts and reserved, green, herbal hops. Taste is bitter throughout. Wish there was more of a hop presence in nose to accompany the straight through hop flavor. Oatmeal malts provide balance. Good, but feels like an incomplete thought.

The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is loads of hops and pine. Taste is bitter with some powerful hops. Nice and well balanced. Citrus flavors predominate without being too much grapefruit. Nice body. Nice aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Copper color with a whispy white head. Good lacing.
N: Pungent Mary Jane, grapefruit, pine, earth. Onion and some pineapple. Grassy and leafy.
T: Very bitter, some malt.
M: Medium-heavy, some resin, no alcohol burn.
O: I once had this in a blind tasting, and it was dead in the middle. I can’t say having it by itself changed my opinion. It’s a big seller, and frankly, there are a lot better IPAs out there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy sunkissed gold under a generous sticky white head. Musty and earthy nose with some earthy lemon rind and bitter leafy resins. Flavor starts crisp and leafy but blends to a grapefruity tone featuring some semisweet lemongrass and caramalt. Not shabby. But nothing particularly memorable.
