4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12.oz bottle poured to tulip. Man-o-man this is such a go to for the IPA lover! This dream pours a light hazy orange and has a thin white quickly dissipating head. The aroma is where the awesomeness of this IPA first shows itself. It’s a fresh hop assault! From barnyard earthiness to pineapple, guava, mango, grapefruit, tangerine and bubblegum..it’s in there! There is a whiff of cracker like malt..but this is about the hops! Floral and juicy, fresh citrus and that inherent grounding earthiness. This not a palate wrecker but rather a showcase of hop profiles.
The bitterness is invigorating in play with all of the hop flavors and the subtle malt sweetness. I rave. The carbonation is light and this really is dangerously smooth. This is an accessible and expertly made beer. Enjoy and keep this in your rotation!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Pours a medium-to dark gold with a high, lacy, coarse-grained cream-colored head. Nose is very clean -- camphor, spruce, mint, grapefruit. Flavor is as clean; sharply defined, elegantly balanced between bitterness, citric sourness, and an almost butterscotch malty sweetness. Finish remains sweetness -- a touch too sweet for me, this beer’s only flaw. Excellent.

New copper color with a golden tint. Foamy white head. Floral hop nose. Citrus and.floral hop taste balanced by the malt. Just pushes the boundary of traditional enough to satisfy.
