4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draught at the brewpub. This brew is a hazy ruddy orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Citrusy hops aroma with notes of malt and caramel. Rich body with flavors of hops, grapefruit, sweet malt and a bit of pine. The finish is resiny hops with a lingering bitterness left behind. Good all around.

On tap at Piece. Opaque orange pour with a thin off-white head. Orange and grapefruit aroma with a touch of sweet malt. Tangy orange flavor with some malt and a bitter grapefruit finish that is nicely rounded. Very well executed beer, and it doesn’t surprise me a bit coming from these guys.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had this on tap into a tasting glass at Piece. Its dark gold with a hint of orange good retention and lacing. The aroma is superlight for a dipa, a little piney hops, small grapefruit but thats it. The taste is really nice though, super easy to drink and flavorful not overpowering at all. If you want a smooth piney ipa, give this a shot.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Piece. Pours looking a lot like Camel Toe, glowing orange with a fluffy, frothy off white head. Nose is fantastic, showcasing amarillo and probably some ahtanum. Apricot, peach, resin. On taste, it is more subdued than CT, but they dry-hopped the heck out of it giving it a smooth/soft bitterness that is thrust at you with a ton of tropical flavors from the late edition hops. Pretty spectacular IIPA.
