3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma of piney hops, a little buttery hops, and a slight fruitiness. Flavour is very sharp, full of soapy floral hops, a little dry pine, and dry biscuity malt. This is quite sharp and astringent, finishing on harsh soapy floral hops. Super dry and quite drinkable. Very solid IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is all bright floral hops. Flavor a little on the bitter side; not unpleasantly so. Palate a little thin but definitely drinkable. I would not turn it down.

651mL thanks to Leighton. Clear orange pour with good foam. Onion, garlic style hop nose with vanilla in background. Taste is juicier cantaloupe, sugar, intensely bitter. Moves to onion for the finish. Not bad though.
