3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance was cloudy orange gold with lasting creamy off white 2 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are soft Marris malt sweetness, orange marmalade, grapefruit, pine with hints of alcohol. Taste burst of grapefruit, orange, lime, lemon, pine hops. Malt middle sweetness with some burn of alcohol and pine resin end. Palate was soft smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, then lasting slightly unbalanced off finish. A good effort, but needs more fruity hops and back off the pine(Simcoe).

Tap poured into bowling pin glass at Happy Gnome. Visually attractive double IPA. A deep orange hue with pretty good lacing. Taste is in the standard double IPA league. Enjoyable with emphasis on malty sweet but some good hop quality. Finish is a little too bitter and mouthfeel slightly thin. Two things it can probably work on. Aftertaste lingers. There are better options in this style.

Aromas of hops, pine and subtle alcohol. Pours clear copper with white head that dissipates too quickly. Tastes too bitter which makes hard to distinguish the palate. Still pretty smooth for 8.2%. Overall alright beer but there are so many more better hopped ipas out there.

Draft pour avg dark gold. Nose dank hop with underlying smell of perm fluid. Taste bitter up front with slight chemical again. Some dank and pine hop if I search hard. Not very pleasing today.

This golden beer had a sweet aroma of redwood forest. It has a strong hoppy flavor which finishes with a strong hop aftertaste.

Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Created a thin delicate layer of head that covered a dark golden liquid with proper carbonation bubbles. Aroma smells heavy with herbal and the scents of citric hops.
