3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ran across a can. Pour very light orange and appears to be quite watery. A rocky white head formed from an aggressive pour. A light citrus and onion aroma was mostly over run my alcohol. Basicly that same think with the flavor. A bit of spice, lots of bitterness and a long burn. Light body with a bit of an oily slickness. Good, but not memerable.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz in bordeaux glass. Foggy deep gold capped with dense low head. Initial aroma is strongly metallic -- and I’m not ascribing that to the packaging, it really is -- then some catty, onion, cheese, and acrid stuff follows. Flavor fares better with some spice, mineral and toffee. Finish is rather hot and there’s a bit of a smeggy aftertaste. This was purchased at Bottle Barn, where it was displayed unrefrigerated; I think I was under the impression that this was an English-style barleywine and would tolerate the warm aging.

Strong fresh citrus and floral hop aroma. Cloudy light orange color with a large white head. Moderate bitterness that builds to strong bitterness in the finish and fading in the end.

I was lucky enough to get this can from Scottie of L-Knife, so first off I must say thanks to him for hooking me up with this IPA. Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is of florals up front, with some hops, grapefruit, tangerines, caramel, and some earthiness. Flavor is quite sweet (but in a pleasant way) for an IPA. There’s some booziness in there, hops, spices, tangerines, and malts. Leaves a sweet hop finish. Nice.

This was a great beer as promised by the bartender at Mad Mex North Hills. Though the odor of hops was faint, the flavors were complex with delicate Exotic flowers, funky outstanding flavors, ascorbic acid, dates. Golden color small head and just a little lacing but Great

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A combination of citrus, herbs, and resin combine to an aroma akin to a bouquet. Taste is quite nice, but just a bit too hoppy.

Can from Ledger’s. Yum! Pours a clear golden with minimal head. Nose is sharp, grassy hoppage. Flavor is bitter - not unlike the creamy bitter from Two Hearted. Finishes clean as can be.

Pours a glassy amber with a nice white head. Aroma is piercing pine and grapefruit. Flavor is tongue-curling grapefruit, orange peel, and pine, all with a malty backbone. Average mouthfeel. A great IIPA.
