3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden orange pour with a white head. Nose is floral with a decent amount of citrus peel. Some tangerine and grapefruit, a little bit of grass, some bread, and toasted malt sweetness. The flavor is a bit on the sweet side for an IPA. A fair amount of bread and toast. Light pine bitterness, grapefruit, and tangerine citrus notes. A fairly floral hop profile to this, too. Light orange peel and a bit of grass.

No head, slightly foggy amber color, sticky dank hop aroma, cascades, alcohol tastes much higher tan 6.5 on this batch, floral orange flavor, dank, flowers
Had this on cask too, the cask version was not nearly as bright and fruity with hop flavor and aroma, the bitter stood out much more on cask b/c of the drop out of hop flavor and aroma over time, I much preferred the fresh to the cask

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up a growler for New Year’s. Pours clear gold with orange highlights. Medium-sized white head, creamy, good lacing. Perfumey aroma, mostly grapefruit and pineapple, some lemongrass, with a lesser amount of pine. Taste was clean. Very hoppy; resiny flavor without the stickiness. Nice strong citrus bite, grapefruit again, but with more lemon/orange than in the nose. Kind of veggie/wood middle. The lack of a caramel malt sweetness was satisfying and a welcome change. Nice mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Easily polished off the growler, so it was drinkable. Loved it.

On-tap at PPSB. Pours amber with a moderate sized, offwhite head, spider web lace. Smells very citrusy and sweet. Orange with a grass backing. Tastes very citrusy and nice. Orange again, with a touch of grass. Mostly hops, but I think there is a solid malt backbone in there as well, sweet. Medium body, good carbonation.
