3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce can received in a trade with wchesser. Hazed golden copper with a nice gold tinted head. A nice, citrus aroma. Citrus defines the flavor. It manages to not be grapefruit and to not have big bitterness. Oranges and lemon. Caramel is much lighter but works here. Alcohol was not tasted but was immediately felt. Good stuff!

Pours orange with some white head. Citrus nose, orange, chive, lime. Chewy malt flavor, honey, scallion, oranges. Zesty finish. Struck me as a little odd.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 12 oz can into a tulip glass, with a slight chill haze, it’s bright amber orange with a moderate amount of sticky cream-orange colored foam. Loads of caramel and juicy citrus in the nose. It’s dense, approaching syrupy, bready, and sweet, with hops riding high above with nice grapefruit, citrus rind essence. With 11.2% alcohol, I have to say it’s not that warm or that sweet. Big beer in a little can. I like it.

Overall, a nice IPA but doesn’t get overly hopped with it being triple hopped.

Snifter at the brewery. This guy is pretty malty, but definitely not too much so. The sweetness provides a little balance and takes away a little of the bite, but doesn’t interfere with the rich hop aroma and flavor. The aroma has plenty of piney, garlicky character with a grapefruit backdrop. This translates well into the flavor. Plenty of clear, crisp hop bouquet. It has a sharp, dank herbal finish. Lots of lingering garlic and evergreen. Really clean, well made and "balanced".
