3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very fresh hop aroma. A bitterness that hits upfront. Hop flavors really stay around for a while. Slight caramel feel in the back that somewhat takes away from the drinkability. Overall good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is probably malt, though it reminds me of wood pulp. Hint of fruit sweetness to it. Color is a light amber with a meringue-like head that goes down to a decent lacing. Taste a bit of citrus, but also seems to be strawberry to it. Then comes a sweet malt taste, and a bit of grapefruit like citrus at the back. (note: the citrus is pretty muted - do not expect it to be like a Citra or grapefuit IPA). More malty than expected. There is a little bit of a resiny mouthfeel at the end.
It is a decent IPA. Something I would drink if it was available, but nothing I would seek out.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is fruit and hops. Flavor is sweet fruity hops, perhaps some caramel or vanilla. It’s an interesting flavor for an IPA, but it works well. There is also a bit of bitterness to the finish. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Pours clear and orange with a small, creamy, white head and several fat bubbles. The aroma is juicy and fruity, offering pluots and oranges with traces of resin and vanilla. The orange and vanilla nuances play well together and become reminiscent of a Creamsicle. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is a hop-driven, heavily bitter medley of citrus and stone fruits – pluots and oranges come to mind. Raspy, bitter, dry finish. Bottle courtesy of FlandersNed!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy apple cider color. Medium sized off white head. Big Pine aroma. Lots of classic hop bitterness with just enough sweet picked up on the back end. Good lingering bitter in the finish. Good lace. Good solid IPA that I would drink again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from a 12oz bottle. It poured a hazy shade of amber with a frothy off white head that left rings of streaky lacing. Malt over hop on the nose but this brew ain’t hop shy on the tongue. This is one easy drinking 8.0 IPA.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"An inclusive immoral ale with an impulsive ignorant hop bite"...what? I deduct points for nonsensical commercial descriptions. I’m not sorry. 12 oz. bottle supplied by WillRunForBeer at my pad. Thanks! To long-stemmed tulip, it pours a dark orange with which a a whitish-ringed head barely a finger in length stood. Aromas of asparagus, salted caramel, pumpkin meat, wet cardboard, and mildew. Tastes the same with the addition of orange peels, cucumber, coconut oil, seawater, and DME. Has a slight minerality by swallow, accompanied by table sugar and American yeast. Moderately chewy. Can’t say I was much of a fan, but I’d try again if the opportunity arose.
