3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy dark amber to copper cored pour with a 2 finger, soapy beige head. Aroma starts with super fruity hops with a nice bite, a full gamut of citrus, lots of floral and a little tart tropical fruit, then some tart berry, mild toast, sweet biscuit and some floral/fruity notes that I can’t exactly pin down. Flavor is tree and berry fruit, caramel and biscuit up front, then citrus, floral, passion fruit-tropical, earthy and herbal hops, lots of fruity, berry perfume and light, but noticeable spicy, phenolic notes. Medium body, oily, syrupy and a hint of creaminess throughout along with a medium carbonation. Really tasty stuff, there are a couple off notes, but overall it was very enjoyable.

Gorgeous amber pour with thin beige head. Aroma is fruity: peach and mangoes that can be fully tasted. The 7 hops do the rest of the job for a wonderful IPA. Great.

Bottle-I’m not going to add much to here, except that this a fine quality IPA. It helped that I was drinking this after one very bad beer and one disappointing beer in one day. Add to this, we just grilled a fine New York strip with our favorite marinade, it added up to a great way to finish off the weekend. Golden brown color, medium head, nice, but not overwhelming hop aroma. Quite a mix of hop flavors, but still very tasty. Medium bite on the finish. Produce place 6.99

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy orange color with medium white head. Aroma is floral, citrusy and piney, with a good malt backbone. Medium to full body with a really good mouthfeel. Taste follows the aroma, with lots of floral and citrus hops and a piney/resiny backbone. Malts are very present, with a really sweet sugary profile. Aftertaste is its weakeast point, I expected a much more bitter finish from a 90 IBU beer.
