3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: hazy pale amber with three fingers of rocky ivory head, decent retention and good lacing. (4/5) Aroma: toffee malt, citrus, generalized fruity esters, pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Medium slightly oily body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Middle-of-the-road-A/IPA… well, OK, verging on “slightly better than middle-of-the-road”. To my nose, the malt leads - which is definitely one the “con” column. On the other hand, the bitter is actually fairly massive - as in, DIPA levels - so there’s that. Overall, it’s solid - but I’m slightly disappointed, because it feels like it could’ve been better, had the malt taken its rightful place behind the hops. (15/20)

Notes of light citrus and then a bitter bite bomb. Is that the eraser? Eating one. No nose. Nice head. Meh.

Dark golden with off white head - Fruity hop aroma with some citrus - Good malt body to support a nice hop profile with fruity flavours with hints of pine and good bitterness - The hop goes into the finish with citrus, pine and bittterness that is dry - This was good

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity hops, mild-moderate bitterness, and lighter flowery hop bitterness. Not bad.

(En nitro à la brasserie): Une base caramélisée pale et des notes herbacées composent la colonne de ce liquide assez simple. L’amertume est vive mais persiste peu.

Palm Beach Gardens, FL - Whole Foods - 22 oz bomber. Light to medium golden pour, bubbly and silky, snow white head that leaves a nice film of lacing. Aroma has some light spruce, some funky orange marmalade accents. Solid IPA flavor,strong citrus bitterness. sweet caramel maltiness, some underlying pepper notes. Nice, thick rich mouthfeel.

At the M.I.A. brewhouse during a 3-hour layover at MIA as part of a sampler.Clear orange with white head. Generally mundane all around after some really nice IPAs during an afternoon tasting session.

Hazy pour, to a cloudy point fizzy no head though. Tasted old hops stale cardboard and lean. No a fan.

Draft at Eastbound. Hoppy profile as expected. Another IPA. It wasn’t bad, and at least I really like my new Rough Draft pint glass.
