3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Handbottled (thanks K.B.!). HAzy goldeny orange colour with a mediumsized foamy white head. Aroma is citrus fruits, grass, some spruce as well as mild honey and some sweet caramel maltyness. Flavour is rather fruity and floral hoppyness along with some crisp and sweet maltyness. Very nice balance for an IPA. Highly drinkable and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can at Sander’s place, NYC. Not crazy about this beer. Pours clear copper with a moderate, creamy-foamy head. Nose holds some dry caramel, earth pine and herbal hops. Light to medium sweet flavor, more dry, toasty caramel, herbal and lightly astringent bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Some toasty malts to finish, bit of dried caramel, elderly pine and herbs. So so. Might be a little old.

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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a clear gold body supporting a light tan head of foam. The mild aroma offers up a sweet mix of orange citrus like hops and earthiness and then a little grassiness near the end of the draw. This taste is smooth tasting and seems hop flavor forward that starts a little sweet with malts mixing with orange and grapefruit hoppiness creating an orange juice sensation. Midway and into the finish the thin layer of sweet malts recedes leaving a modest degree of grapefruit like citrus bitterness that heads into the finish. After another sample this ends pleasingly bitter and forces your hand making you try a third sample. Nice IPA.
