4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can via UD in trade. Big golden body with similar growing oily head. A lucious nose of hops and malts that does not seem to fade. Spectacularly balanced. Hops and malts appear continuously and show their stuff like runway models from VS. Its like a small parade of separate hops and malts in my mouth. Yum...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Orange rinds become grassy resins, as honeyed malt sugars ground this efficient IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the hazy amber shine.
-The prickly effervescence and relatively lean body make for good drinkability.
-This is a very professional job, albeit not a memorable one.
-Fruit character could be bolder, in my tastes.
On tap at The Ole Saint.

Aroma is spices, pine and really dank hops. The flavor is fruit, dank hops, spices, malts and a mix of slight heat and bitter in the finish

Amber pour. Thick white head. The nose is decently hoppy. A little bit
of caramel and a touch of pine and pepper. Fresh and slightly grassy.

Tap. Pours clear amber, small off white head, decent lacing. Aroma is very melon, honey dew, mountain dew - that green one. Flavor really tastes like an IPA hoped with that green mountain dew. Weird. Light plus sweet, light bitter. Light body, lingering bitterness.
