4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Such a wonderful floral aroma, pick up big burst of apricot and citrus. Also notice some light caramel notes and alcohol. This caught me by surprise, just an all around excellent American IPA. Fruity hops delight throughout. Grapefruit and apricot balance with malt sweetness. Piney bitterness then slides into a dry finish.

12 oz bottle, pours hazy golden color with a white head. Nice hoppy aroma. Has a taste of a IPA but it is missing something.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy gold with a 3 finger, fluffy, off white head that has great retentino and leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is full of coriander, some citrus, lemon, floral hops, bready yeast and honey. Flavor is sweet malt, dusty grain, citrus hops, coriander, stone fruit, lemon, wheat, bready yeast, birch beer and a light note of what I can only describe as rosemary-like. Palate is light to medium bodied, oily and chalky on entry, has a medium, sharp carbonation and off dry, somewhat slick and chalky finish. There is some interesting stuff going on here, but I can’t really say that I like it all that well, not terrible, but not really what I look for in an IPA, though not bad for a White Ale.
