3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of acrdz.
Nice amber pour, tons of long-lived lacing. Really nice citric aroma, but the flavor is a letdown afterward. Chalky malts, slightly sour-grassy hops that come off understated in comparison to the stage set by the aroma. Not bad, perfectly drinkable, but nothing like an IPA standout.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Clear golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Big time grapefruit notes rest upon an undercurrent of pine, caramel and toffee. Light to medium-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel and sluggish carbonation. Well-balanced. Citrusy, earthy hop flavors. Lightly tart. Modestly bitter, drying finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to BlackForestCO for the bottle!
Pours copper with a short-lived, foamy white head. Nose is full of herbal hop, some grapefruit and slight pine as well. Flavor is consistent here, loads of hop and floral outweighing the slight malts. This is really good beer for straightforward, delicious hop juice.
