3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Translucent, magnifying orangey copper with a thick, café frothed and orange tinted head. Aroma rings with honeydew and lemon grass, freshly cut after a mid-summer rain. It’s timed perfectly for the season. Sweet orange crème toffee crests on the aromatic ridge. Bitter peaches trollop with maple covered grapefruit. Peaches, amaretto and balsa wood interweave. Honeyed marigolds and tinctured carbonation ride a horizontal line across the tongue. A gentle, grassy ridge cuts sweet bitterness to the edge. Thanks for the 750-ml. bottle, tpkenned!

Fresh can. Pours fairly clear gold with tall white head. Aroma is grassy and pineapple. Taste is same with the more grass/hay/earth/spruce notes hitting harder than citrus. Smooth, clean finish. I love a good, tight IPA like this!

"tap as Swami Jo Mami...so many good Port IPAs they start to get muddled. This was very good as well, but didn;t stand out much in a crowded field. Big oine and bitter, with some orange and grapefruit. Good. not quite great."
