3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pale orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of florals and white grapefruit, along with a bit of pale malt. Balanced flavors of grapefruit, toasted grain, and pine cone. Lighter bodied than expected with a clean bitterness. Definitely lighter and less resin-y than old school IPAs, but without the tropical notes of the newer school ones. Very solid overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Moderate produces a nice white pillowy head. Lasting and have lots of lacing. Very hazy, moderate carbonation. Golden-orange. Nose is pine and citrus. Mouthfeel is moderate. Taste is great. Lots of bitter citrus up front, then some malty balance in the middle. The end more bitter hoppiness. Overall a solid hop-forward IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A deep malty aroma battle a kinda citrusy aroma with this pale orangy hazy brew. A bitterness is quickly taken over by a full bodied maltieness and mellows out in the end in a great combo.
