3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright hazy amber with a medium beige head that recedes slowly and leaves a clump of foam in the middle and very little lacing. The aroma is fantastic with tons of juicy citrus and slightly resinous floral hops. Lots of pineapple, oranges and mango with pine as a complement. Biscuity malts are present but the hops are the star. The taste is just as good and starts with a scathingly bitter pithy citrus kick. Really just fills the mouth with oranges, grapefruits and pine. The bready malts are there to support the hops which leaves a big olí bitter finish.

This big, bold IPA has 108 whopping IBUs, but it's balanced out so well. Big foamy white head and great retention with lacing lasting the whole glass. I really enjoyed the punch your lights out bitterness, with the malt's bedside manner.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 65 cl. Pours a hazy golden with a lacing off-white head. Very juicy, citrusy aroma. Very soft on the palate with a carbonation at the low end. Body comes out a little thin - I couldíve thought this to be only 5-6%. But the malts are really not the focus here, itís all about the hops and they are crisp, juicy and super delicious. Yet the beer is still fairly easy drinking with a not overly bitter finish. 300615

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange hue, murky clarity with mostly diminishing fizzy white head. Okay lacing. Aromas of orange hop, Papa Johnís cheesy bread (parmesan cheese) and some tropical fruit. Orange hop and lemon zest up front with more of a hoppy floral finish. Fizzy mouth feel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange gold. Thick off white head. Skunky funky juicy citrus hop aroma. Nice malty backbone. Jammy upfront with gradual bitterness in the mid and strongly bitter to close. Citrus aftertaste. Some grapefruit citrus flavor and a touch of apricot. Cloying mouthfeel. Pretty damn good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Old rating. Amber colored. Resinous, grassy, and piney hops. Pretty much run of the mill hop bomb.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Clear amber color. Heavy clover and honeysuckle floral aroma. Resin, citrus, caramel, butter. Flavor is super hoppy with the Cascade and Centennial hops standing out. Very nice use of hops to get the high IBUís without sacrificing flavor. This is a very drinkable brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Bad Parenting Club (plus a few dirty aunt/uncles?!): NC Beer Edition on 03/28/2015. This brew is a slightly hazy orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of citrus, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of fruity hops, roast malt and a bit of pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
