can @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear medium amber with a good 1" white head that lasts, full curtain of lace. Taste is assertive malt that turns to strong pine hops on the swallow, with mostly hops continuing through a long finish. A little overbalanced with the hops, otherwise a solid brew.

Pours a golden copper clear with nice fluffy white head. Aroma is citrus, soap, floral hops. Flavor is resiny, citrus, some dank nuggets. A nice bit of malt round out the beer. Very nice IPA up there with the finest competition.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber color with a nice transparency about it. A two finger white foamy head dissipated after about a minute. Fairly thick foamy lacing stuck nicely around the glass.
The smell had a deep sweet citrus to piney sweet and bitter grapefruit. A nice sweet caramel allocates itself nicely in the background.
The taste was mainly sweet but carried a nice settling bitterness to round out the flavor. A nice sweet sticky fruity aftertaste leads into the finish, it’s not as dry as the can says so but that doesn’t bother me.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. For an AIPA, the carbonation seemed to be a tad lighter than expected but still worthy.
Overall, this was a nice AIPA that comes across a bit smoother than expected. I’d have it again.

Can : Pour is fairly clear gold with a frothy, fine bubbled off white head into this glass- it retains well, with sticky lacing presence here. The nose is citrus notes and pine resin initial - passion fruit and peach is pushing it from the description ,but its fairly nice for the style - the flavor profile is modest bittering hops, moderate fruit hop notes of orange zest and grapefruit, moving to clear caramel, with a fairly clean body and a finish line that lingers on the tongue. Not bad at all

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Thanks, Travis. Cloudy, burnt golden color with a foamy, off-white head that fades to a collar in a few moments. Zesty aroma with grapefruit, citrus, orange peel, & pine resin backed by a spicy herbal note & a bit of leafy ash. Almost grassy. Good, pale cracker malt base in the flavor with more of that citrus rind flavor coming through, a touch more bitter than the aroma would lead you to believe. Hints of white pepper, earthy notes, & a kiss of pine in the finish along with a tickle of grapefruit peel. Pretty solid IPA all around, not as tropical as I’d expect given the description, though.

Crowler... Pours clear and amber with a small, fleeting, white head. The aroma is a hop-driven collection of musky and funky armpit notes, tropical fruits, citrus fruits and resin. Full-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is a blast of heavy, rindy bitterness with an afterthought of biscuit. Lengthy, bitter aftertaste. Crowler courtesy of landhoney!
