3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a near white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has notes of bitter pine and grapefruit as well as a light grain backbone. Flavor starts with grass and a bit of light citrus but finish is mainly resin with a touch of sweet grain backing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A quality IPA. Nicely balanced between malts and hops which makes it bordering (with the abv) on double ipa territory. Nice.

Draft at brewpub. Nice but somewhat faint piney aroma. Clear amber body with no visible carbonation. ReAlly nice balanced IPA with a healthy amount of hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange peel, grapefruit, bitter pine, grass, and spice notes, touch of caramel, toffee, hints of dough as well. Taste is a mix of orange, citrus, grapefruit into some biscuit, caramel, hints of grass and pine, finishing bitter, slightly dry.

Tap. Cloudy dark orange. Pine hops. Some biscuit. Reminded me of Fulton sweet child of vine, but more hoppy. Pretty decent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Northbound in Minneapolis. Good deep hops, with some light fruit behind. Very heavy hop initial / mid goes buttery and caramel seeps out / finishes with surprisingly subtle hop tracks. Medium-heavy body. Well done. Restrained and balanced for a big IPA. Served a bit too cold. Dry hop adds a lot.
