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

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.

Pours a very cloudy orange-golden color with a short, quickly dissipating off-white head. Piney, citrusy nose with toffee malt aromas becoming a little too overpowering for the style. Full body with a wet texture. A mildly harsh hop leads the roasted malt. Both merge midway to impart a distinct prune flavor.

Aroma of mango and a cloudy gold color with a little white head. It has a bitter hop flavor but has subtle sweet notes too. Complex.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber-orange with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is lots of pine and grapefruit, some toast and bready malt. Taste is orange and grapefruit, grainy malt, and medium bitterness with a bit of fusel alcohols or solvent like off-flavor. I’m guessing this was a bad bottle, and I’ll re-rate if I get a chance to try a fresher one.
