12oz bottle courtesy of GhostFace. Cheers, Neal! Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is a nice bit of caramel, orange, apricot, and mild pine notes. Flavor is similar- orange and apricot with pine and light alcohol on the back end. Light to medium in body with lingering pine. Nice iipa overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Unfiltered orange-tan. Big soapy, steady head. Dry, bitter, resinous hop aroma...something a little bit off in there too, factory metal-plastic sweetness. I’ve had this beer numerous times on tap. even on nitro. Never realized it was only 7%. it doesn’t really come off so big I suppose, but there is some intense bitterness, It’s sort of one-dimensional though, mostly soapy dryness. Doesn’t really come together all the way, sort of bold up front but just fades on you. Still pretty enjoyable, and those hop tones do come out the more you sip on it..

12oz bottle from jmagnus off my charity box win from his generosity. Poured an uglier lightly muddied apple cider amber body with a smaller frothy white head. Aroma of green apple skins, wet bread, older resiny hop cones, rotting citrus. Medium to slightly thicker bodied with average carboantion and a lingering flavor on the aftertaste. Flavor of breads, caramel, rotting citrus meat, older hop cones, touch of cardboard for some reason and a hint of tea. Decent overall but not blown away. Still big thanks to Josh for the hookup on this one.

Bottle. The look is clear, deep golden, and thin whitish head. The smell is a musty hops, grass, malts, caramel, and floral. The taste is grassy, hops, bitterness, hops, and good.

On tap at the O’so taproom. Nothing like walking around looking at hops, malt and other related items while walking around with a nice tasty IPA. Amber with a thin white head and moderate lacing. Aroma is very hoppy with grapefruit, orange, light pine and some caramel but it’s not quite balanced out. Taste is a hop bomb with a fair amount of malt and a high bitter and peppery finish that’s pretty aggressive. Grapefruit, orange, pine and some grassy hops with some caramel and tropical fruits. IPA all day, nice job O’so.

Aroma is pine and juicy citrus. The flavor is grapefruit, mild sweetness, citrus, a hint of tropical fruit/berries and a mix of bitterness and tangy in the finish.

On tap at Sugar Maple last month. The beer pours to a deep amber body with a starch white head. The aroma is bitter grass and grapefruit. Sweet mango and nectarines and deep toasted malt. Mouthwatering bitter palate.

Nitro Tap. Pours clear golden, medium supper creamy white head, lasts forever, great lacing. Aroma is pot, grapefruit, orange. Flavor is the same, medium honey sweetness, light dank potty citrus bitterness. Not harsh. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Interesting and tasty.
