Poured an amber color with aromas of floral hops, light bread, some pine and light caramel. Flavors follow suit nothing out of this world but basic and decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.69 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a gently hazed, light copper-hued body with a growing, lasting, off-white head. Quality lacework on the descent.
Smell: Strongly floral hops, but also an infusion of citrus and a mite bit earthy over a basic, simplistic base of bready malts.
Taste: Lightly bready malts with a small, small nibble of golden syrup sweetness. Notably floral hops with sips of lemon and white grapefruit juices and a light telltale earthiness. Moderately bitter. Juicy, floral on the bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Not quite as expressive as Sweetwater’s IPA, but it’s fairly decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared by turdferguson. Murky amber orange pour, floaties (bottom of bottle). One finger of off white head. Nose is resin heavy, lots of oily hop notes, light oxidation with bready notes and a citric quality. Lightly zesty quality to the flavor, otherwise the hop character is very resinous. Piney with a slightly papery quality. Not bad, needs some work but a great start.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Orange color. Loads of floaties make it a bit un-appealing Aroma of hops; simple pine. Malt scent is a simple caramel. Tastes of very bitter hops, distant malt. Not great.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is big and impressive with citrus, pine, and grassy hops. The malts are caramel like and give good balance. The appearance is amber with a large foamy head. The taste is like the aroma to a point but mostly astringent. The palate is thin. Overall this is such a waste. It is one great smelling beer that got my hopes up to them dash them.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper brown body with quite some yeast residue floating around. Bubbly medium white head. Malt focus aroma powered with pine hops and spruce. Sharp bitterness, not much left of that malty base. It’s okay. (On my Florida trip)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with creamy off-white head. Aroma is cereal and bready malts, tropical fruit esters, floral notes, and some caramel. Flavor is dry malts, some sweetness, medium hop bitterness, and some light fruit esters; a mix of sweetness and bitterness through the finish. Medium body and carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a pillowy white head. Nose is fairly hoppy, but there some muddled maltiness underneath. Taste is fairly bitter with no balance. The palate is extremely dry, which I find odd.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on tap. Opaque (cloudiest IPA I’ve ever seen, and not the bottom of the keg, but I still think its a good sign) green-orange-toast color with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is very mild citrus and evergreen. Taste is a bit bolder with the evergreen, caramel and citrus. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and is dry with lots of hop, but the taste is just so-so.
