3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazy orange amber with a good medium lasting beige head, with good lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt citrus, light yeast, piney hops, grapefruit with some apricot notes fill the senses. Taste is of fruity citrusy notes, some light yeast, followed by some citrusy piney hops, grapefruit and some apricot flavors. A nice medium body with good carbonation and crisp mouth feel on the palate. Finishes with a sweet biscuit malt, fruity citrus and apricot flavors, some light yeast, ending with some good slightly spicy citrusy piney hops for balance. Overall a well done, tasty and nicely balanced IPA.

This was delicious. Better than the satanic variation that was also just released. Aggressive hopping and clean profile with a touch of sweet apricot makes it enjoyable and drinkable.

Thanks Chipalsa. Bottle into snifter. The aromas are dense and packed with citrus aromas including grapefruit and orange plus some apricot. There is a touch of pine and a combined aroma of what I call well water aroma. Very nice. This one pours very hazy orange with tons of yeast swimming around in there. A white head with lacing that hung on for dear life. Tastes are similar with notes of citrus and apricot. I get some bready notes on the finish and a slight caramel malt touch. Not a bad ipa at all. Don’t be fooled by the haters.

Bottle. Citrus hop and apricot aroma. Hazy orange with a moderate white head. Bitter piney hops flavor. No significant fruit flavor...just heavy harsh hops with no balance.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
According to the label, this should be a fruit beer; apricots and such. Smell is dull ipa. Foamy head hazy hefe lookin thing. Fruit and spices have very little effect on this ipa-ish brew and now I know why its in that style, wew. Bitter strong medicine and now I see little sediment chunks floating around in there. Much stronger than the description would lead you to think. Not sure if any white ale can be tasted with that overwhelming ipa character, borders on double ipa. Same with the finish, its like a bulldozer.Feels like more than 6%. Not for a lager lover fer sure. Yes, long bitter astringent nasty nellie soapy finish. whew
