3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft. amber caramel, clear, small head. sticky pine sap / resin-heavy nose with requisite pineapple fruit and lemon citrus hops. medium-full body, syrupy and a bit goppy, and just a tad too flabby and chewy as well. strong bitterness but medium-low acid, that’s a problem. caramel-heavy orange-oil floor wax hop finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Nola. Copper amber brew. Delicate lace. Spicy hop aroma. Peach and nectarine undertone harmonious accents. Light to medium body and easy to drink. Nice chicory bitter finish from the toasty malts. Certain citrus. Nice hoppy number and easily one of the top local beers!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler thanks to Mora2000. Pours with a hazed orange hued body and a thick, bone hued white head that lasts. Some small particles floating around. Aromas of citrus, pine, light tropical fruit, a hint of alcohol and a clean, bready 2 row. A bit of tangerine. Flavors are citrusy, tangerine, pomelo. A bit husky/nutty on the grain side of things. Some grassy hop presence. Medium carbonation, dry and a bit thin.

Solid IPA for a local brewery. Taste is very good, but I would prefer more hop variety. Tastes like a lot of pale ales but with more alcohol presence. Maybe some more interesting malt character would put it over the top. I enjoy this beer frequently.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky brownish amber with off-white head. Nose of malt turning fruits, and caramel. Good body/carbonation. Sweet, but not terribly so. Mandarin orange, grapefruit, malt, caramel. Cloying, one-note IPA. Tastes more boozey than it is. Mediocre.

Draft. Decent hop profile but nowhere near a hop juggernaut as the name might suggest.

On draft at Avenue Pub. Pale amber in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of oranges, sweet grapefruit, and grass. There is a bit of pale malt character in the mouth, but the citrusy American hops dominate here as well. Medium bodied. A bit SNPA-like. Nothing unexpected overall, but well executed.
