From 12oz bottle to tulip. Pour is a very robust amber with a thick light tan head. Nose is super hoppy, earthy, citrus, floral, some malt character. Taste is very bitter, medium-heavy bodied. Finishes a bit harsh but still a really nice beer. Just picked these guys up at my distributor, excited to have them.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma- Big grapefruit and pine over rich caramel. Nice notes of tropical fruits.
Taste- Sweet orange and tropical fruits up front, followed by big caramel, big pine and grapefruit rind. Sweet, slightly boozy, and resinous finish. Tropical fruits became more pronounced as it warmed.
Overall- Big, well balanced aromas and flavors. The more it warmed, the better it became. I especially liked the caramel backbone mixing with the tropical fruits, but all the flavors played together well. I would definitely have again.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on tap at Schlafly Bottleworks, a guest tap leftover from the Repeal of Prohibition Festival. Orange amber colour with weak white foam. Intense American hoppy notes with a little English Northern Brewer snuck-in. Aroma was more enjoyable than flavour, which seemed a little coarse, less smooth than some of the other IPAs in a side-by-side trial. Mellow caramelly malts, a little residual sweetness to balance the bitterness, low-medium body
