3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours a semi-clear, bright gold. Small white head fades rather quickly but a thin lace lingers.
Aroma: Quite aggressive aroma. Pungently floral up front but I really liked the lemon, grapefruit, citrus-y flavors towards the end. Nothing but hops here.
Taste: Quite refreshing! Bitter and hoppy from the get-go but finishes light, sweet, and citrus-y. Virtually no malt flavor.
Palate: Very light-bodied, lively carbonation and a very clean mouthfeel.
Overall: Another highly drinkable IPA, I think they’re finally starting to grow on me :) Great hop flavor without being annoyingly bitter. Great mouthfeel and aftertaste so I almost want to savor the flavor, but it’s so light and clean I can’t fight the desire to indulge.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance was clear orangish gold with lasting creamy white 2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are orange marmalade, lemon, tangerine and grapefruit with soft pale malt sweetness, no alcohol. Taste are orange and tangerine blast upfront, then soft sweet malt middle swallow. The glorious soft piney balanced fruity finish. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, then lasting soft resinous fruity finish. Overall a wonderful malty fruity East Coast style IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold to light amber. Small head. Grass, pine, resin on the nose. Good carbonation and body but a slight watery/mineraly taste. Palate - well-balanced versus one-dimensional - jury’s out. Burp! Excuse me.
