4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. Hazy orange pour with a lasting off white head. Huge nose full of citrus rind, tropical notes, and hint of herbals. Needless to say, this brew is all about the hops and they are there from start to finish. Nice dank and overripe citrus notes. Just a hint of malt sweetness. Dry on the back end and a long, hoppy finish. This brew keeps you coming back for more.

One of the best IPA beers I have had in years. Great hop profile and taste with no notable alcohol for 8.5%

Bottle @ Bobby’s house. Orange pour with a white head. Big pine, orange, and grapefruit aromas. A bit of sweet malt/bread in the background. Flavor is intensely bitter. A bit too sharp/harsh for me. Lots of pine, grass, orange, and grapefruit. Just a touch of caramel and bread sweetness.

355mL. Pours hazy golden, thick head and lacing. Nose is dank tropical hops, candied ginger, candied papaya. Taste is thicker jackfruit, some sugar, rich body with tropical hop balance. Juicy and fresh. Very good.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Same visuals as their rye IPA, a murky orange-amber, thin but sticky head. Two OCBC beers in a row that have delivered ultra-sexy aromas, full of floral draw. The beer drinks with a definite viscosity, with a bit of alcohol burn working its way thru the big-time citric acidity. Full bodied, well balanced. (#5343, 11/24/2013)

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin, dense, lasting, white head and some minor lacing. Nose of tangerine, grapefruit, grass, pine, grain. Medium body, nice hop flavor, mild bitterness. This bottle was probably 2 months old but still tasted pretty fresh. Nice IPA
