3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma has lots of hops, citrus fruits along with a little pine; slight caramel notes. Taste is sweet initially, but this is offset by a gradually intensifying bitterness that is quite nice. Light-medium body, smooth on the palate, and good carbonation. Overall an exceptionally nice double IPA.

EBP, Mill Creek. Solid creamy white on darker clear gold. Very smooth dipa body, this brings me back to the classics. Some hop astringency. Modest bitter. Quite tasty, but not explosive. Very solid.

Solid but not overly distinctive. Pine and resin from noise to finish. Crisp and light bodied for a double IPA. Would definitely repeat.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Monk’s Cafe, Philly.
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (cookie), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit, apricot).
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter.
Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Nice appearance, and an equally nice fluffy mouthfeel with low syrupy-ness and relatively modest booze-burn, but the aroma just doesn’t do very much…it’s almost all resin and grapefruit, i.e. just the usual west coast odors. Decent flavor balance for the style but just on the edge of being caustic.

A really nice, stronger IPA. Hops in the nose, sweet body with a hoppy finish. No alcohol. A little sweet. Really nice.

On tap. Pours a fairly clear dark gold with a small head and decent lacing. Smells a weak floral citrus. Tastes fine, above average, cut below top notch with slight medicine alcohol prominent. Finishes with a nice level of bitterness and a respectable aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 1/4/16. Deep hazy golden color with a lot if visible carbonation. Small fluffy white head. Resin and pine with some citrus fruit. Unfortunately flavor doesnt bring the same love. Lacks complexity and flair. Rather average taste for an ipa.
