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!

Pretty good hop aroma, pine and maple. Flavor of mild malts and mango hop flavors. A little light on mouthfeel but bitterness works for this one.

Draft at Sioux Falls Regional Airport (SD). Poured orange in color, clear, lots of foamy head and lots of lacing. Aroma of malts, bread and citrus fruit. Taste of bread, orange and grapefruit; some grass and hoppy notes. Very solid IPA; very good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle poured. Purchased at Molly’s in Denver. Pours an oily, fizzy golden color with a thick foam head. I remember trying this beer a couple years ago for the first time, and wasn’t impressed at all. 2 years and a ton of IPA’s later, my opinion of it has improved, but by no large margin. Aroma is the best quality here, with a wonderful hops presence. Flavor comes of as sweet forward, and bitter finish, which has always been a bothersome combination for me. Creamy body, heavy citrus, but sweet. Middle of the road IPA for me. Good.

Draft. Very fresh and aromatic. Pours dank looking but clears up somewhat. Nice resiny hop flavors that are not overwhelming. Very drinkable. Well done.
