3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 4-04-2016 (Bottled on 10/12/15) The appearance is a medium sized ivory head that mostly diminished, transparent amber body, slow rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is light citrus and pine khops, orange hops, light lemon, and caramel. The flavor presents light bitterness, citrus hops, lightly fruity, and quite malty. The mouthfeel is creamy and light carbonation. This is a medium bodied IPA. An easy drinking IPA with an average taste to it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark gold with a light, off-white, shallow head. Nose is grapefruit, camphor, rosemary, sage, and lavender -- very well balanced. Bitter on the front of the tongue, with a nicely countered orange-toffee malt; thereís a saline or savory edge that adds a third element to the overall taste. I canít say it enough; balanced, balanced, balanced. Itís a little understated, but very harmonious. The finish is, however, a little short. Quite nice.

Great IPA. Tasted this side by side with 7 other MI IPAís and it ranked at the top with 2 others. Nice long-lasting head,copper-gold color and piney aroma. Nice resiny hop flavor balancing a malty background. Solid.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 10/28/15. Pours golden color, big slightly beige head. Aroma is caramel malt, citrus hops, but it feels old. It IS about 3 months old, and Iím pretty sure it was a malty IPA to begin with, but itís particularly malty now. Decently hoppy finish. Would def. be better fresher.

Acobreada com espuma persistente. Otimo aroma, citrico e pinus, mas nao evidente ao paladar. Retrogosto persistente, um pouco terroso.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
copper color with a long lasting medium head. The aroma is ok but the taste is less than desirable. The taste is off-balanced. A little bit more malty would be nice.

12 oz. bottle from Jungle Jimís International Market, Fairfield, OH. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, mango, and wet grass. Taste offers citrus and piney hop bitterness with an assertive malt backbone. Mild lingering bitterness on the palate. Highly quaffable.
