2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet in the buds at first then nice hopped bitterness. I like this beer because it reminded me of NBBC’s Ranger line which is my favorite dept. store brew. A craft beer should stand out from the rest because of the premium price imho, and this beer did not. However, this beer could definitely be a door opener for people who like sweeter beers to turn a new leaf. I will buy this beer again and try others from the company. This beer is brewed from one company and sold by another and craft beer is a delicate process which takes close attention so brewers beware. Regards, AZZJ97

This one was a little on the old side to be at peak and a gusher to boot, so I was ready for a drain pour, so I was pleasantly surprised to find it not much different from the fresher bottles out of the same 6-pack I’d drank some months before. Not a particular distinct nose, mild fruitiness and light malt, but nice medium body and moderate bitterness on the palate, citrus fruit and pine resin that lingers nicely. Nothing mind-blowing, but a solid, tasty IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2015 Piney nose, with some resin and citrus and a slight smokiness. A slight green apple fruitiness as it breathes and warms up. Satisfying body, not sweet or malty, but with a full, oily mouth feel. Pleasantly bitter, with no harshness. Lingering bitter finish. An excellent IPA. The bitterness does most of the talking, but it’s backed up a rich oily body.

Pours a cloudy amber color with a grapefruit aroma. Taste is light floral with a hibiscus aftertaste that quickly disappears. Clean and clear IPA that is simple and refreshing. The hop bitterness is slightly lacking but makes the beer very drinkable.
