Bottle. Clear burnt orange pour with a white head. Big malty bouquet. Tasty with grapefruit and citrus hop notes that blend well with the big honey and caramel malt backbone. Good body and mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at bad apple. You can smell this one from pretty far away. Aroma is lovely, fresh mango, apricot, clementines. Flavor continues on that fresh tropical fruit buzz however the hops and malt leave a fair amount of sweetness behind. Just not bitter enough here. There’s also some kerosene notes in the flavor that are distracting. Very oily. Body is pretty big. After a few sips it gets laboring. Fair amount of alcohol comes through as well. I’d like Simcoe to make a bigger presence here. Aroma is the best part. Could be cleaned up a bit but has promise.

Bottle via trade. Nose is light to moderate citrus. Some honey sweetness. Taste is initially fairly balanced. A light peppery note. Not overly hoppy and a tad sweet. Meh. Moar hops please

Pipeworks does not disappoint on their tradition of fine IPAs. Bright citrus-pine-hoppiness on the snoze, and bountifully danky hop on the buds. Frothy head and hazy amber with some sticky lacing.

A tasty collaboration out of Chicago! Pours a hazy golden color and has the nice bite of hops without a lot of bitterness because it's well balanced with the honey. Delicious

Bottle thanks to Bruce. Pours a clear orange with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong pine and grapefruit. Medium mouth with strong pine, juicy hop, light bitterness, very nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a 22 oz. bottle, basically the last couple ounces. Pours a hazy gold color with a white head. Lots of big, sweet and slightly bitter citrus in this one - orange, grapefruit, lemon - with pine resin, honey, caramel, grass, and some fresh herbs and mellow spice. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a resinous mouthfeel. I need to try more of this one, because what was there was so promising. Really tasty IPA.

Bomber. Golden yellow pour with a small white head. Super rich tropical fruit - thank you Mosaic hops for rocking so hard. Maybe a hint of pine. Awesome!
