3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
$8.50 22oz bomber pours with a slightly hazy copper body that supports a weak off white head. The mild aroma offers up tangerine, lime and some herbal like hop notes. The taste starts with a malty sweet citrus hoppiness that tries to be juicy but stays malty with modest levels of tangerine, grapefruit and clementine. To midway the citrus hops build in bitterness and attain a wafer thin resiny hop bite. It gets maltier into the finish as the bitterness grows to pleasing levels. The more of this 22 I drink the more I like it.

22oz bottle, bought at the brewery. Brown amber with lacing. Oily grapefruit nose. Very fresh! Big grapefruit flavors, along with strong bitterness. Well supported by the malts. So huge I would think it a Imperial. Great and fresh.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy copper gold with a big rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass some.
The aroma is a bit subdued - sugary fruits and some piney hops.
The flavor is sweet sugary fruits with bready malts and some grassy, spicy hops that have decent bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a bit overly sweet and sugary. It has decent bitterness, but not a lot of hop flavor.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance was clear deep gold with some floaties then creamy lasting white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are slight malt sweetness with hints of alcohol, then citrus and tropical fruits. Taste are grapefruit, melon, tangerine, guava, orange and soft pine with good supporting malt. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, then lasting slightly dryish balanced finish. A solid fruity IPA, just wish I knew the born date was. Seems the hops where a little old.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Anthill. Pours a medium orange to golden with minimal head. Aroma is melon and mango forward. Taste is initially a sweet to then bitter character with the fruit coming in. More mango at the very end in the finish which I very much like. Slightly dank when it warms. Overall, I’d order this one again.
