Growler with my FIL and neighbor on the new deck!
The most balanced and quaffable IPA I have ever had. There was just enough hop to call this a IPA but no more. I think the IBU number is a bit high. The malt base of this was strong and the dark Munich and rye malt really stood up and played well with the hop bitter.
The first blast of hop from the growler was a tad muted but opened up like crazy as it warmed. The feel was perfect not too thin or thick, the finish was longer than the brewers description mentions, this is not a bad thing. The finish was fairly long and enjoyable, morphing from the hop bitter to the malty bite of the rye then to a soothing dark. One thing the shocked me was the 10%. It is nowhere to found, except in the bottle of the bottle.

Can. Clear golden color, medium white head working down to a thin lacing. Citrus and floral dominate the aroma. Sweet citrus and berry fruit taste. Medium-thin body, sticky texture, long & dry bitter finish. Nice double IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
reminded me of Belgian blonde ale but with decent hopping presence. Pale in color, malt oriented more than hops, thick textured and foamed, above medium body, aroma dominated by lime zest, floral-grassy tones, bitternes- average for style, medium lasting aftertaste. Interesting for one time.

Intense malty background with distinct caramel, pleasantly intense citrusy hops. light pine, bit of tropical fruits. Moderate sweet with quite intense bitterness. yes, its 10 abv, yes its quite complex, but its helluva refreshing as well

Pours a golden yellow with a foamy white head. Has a citrus and hops aroma. Flavor is tropical fruits, spice, and lots of bitterness. Somewhat sweet, but the finish is quite dry. Great beer!

Can. Ok, that’s a bitter beer. Has some kick too. Gold in color with a nice head. It is weirdly strong on the citrus side. Taste is well like a really bitter, alcohol tasting IPA.

The aroma is hops - spruce, grass. Pours a yellow/orange, clear with a big frothy head mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is light to medium, creamy with average carbonation and the finish is a long bitter. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Rustico. Pours a clear dark golden orange color with one inch of white head that settles quickly to lacing. Aroma is citrus with slight spicy quality. Flavor is aggressive and big: hoppy bitterness with swet malt presence that is ultimately masked by forward alcohol presence. Bitter aftertaste, overall unbalanced to my taste.

The body has a hazy golden orange color with visible carbonation. From the Aggressive pour I got a tall, creamy off white head that has great retention and makes lots of spotty lace on the glass. Its aroma is full of strong musty and citrusy hops with a touch of earthy tobacco and grainy/bready malt. I get a strong full bodied hit of hops up front and throughout on top of sturdy grainy/bready maltiness. Up front the hops hit me with citrusy grapefruit like notes which turn dank, musty, earthy, piney and resiny with a slight tobacco like note in the finish. The alcohol is noticeable and adds its own warm character to the mix. Hop bitterness hangs on the tongue deep into the finish.
