3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a great IPA! Very floral aroma, reminds me of lychee berries. Flavor is extremely smooth upfront, has a bit of a harsh finish but the lingering reminder of freshly cut flowers finishes splendidly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of caramelized toffee malt, honey and citrus herb hops. Appearance is hazy golden orange color with a large, puffy, lasting, off white head. The flavor delivers exactly what the aroma presented along with nice floral, herbal tea and a touch of pine in the finish. Medium body and silky texture. This is a really great IPA that reminds me of the IPA days before all of the citrusy "super" hops.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours. Hazy golden with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is of hops, tropical fruit, pine, and biscuit malt. Smells good. Taste is of mildly bitter hops with lots of tropical fruit. A lot of pine in there as well. Has a very biscuity. Malt backbone. Lingering hop burn. Drinks really easy, and has a lot of carbonation. I could drink quite a few of these.

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.

Bright gold, small off whit head.
Grapefruit danky nose, tea leaf little eatery with a bit of yogurty sourness.
Nice balance of bitter, medum body with good mouthfeel.
Flavour, hoppy foresty with peach,berry,orange and marmalade.
Interesting, complex, clever, tasty and moorish with a waft of an English style about it.

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.
