2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Big up front hops and a very different beer for Shipyard. I guess this is their take on a West Coast. IPAs are not my favorite style and as I got to the end the flavor changed and wasnít as good. As it warmed up a bit of alcohol came through.

12oz bottle pours hazy amber with small head. Nose is malty orange peel and faint lemony pine. Taste is bready malt, bitter, some lemon. Finish is bitter bready malt with some faint lemon citrus. Smells hoppier than it tastes, mostly just bitter. OK, Iíve had worse.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an orangey-copper with a 2 finger sticky cap. Aroma is hoptacular - citrus-pine-earthy with fruits and a big whaft of caramalt. Flavor follows aroma with the big west coast hopping slightly out-pacing the malt delivery up front, then it goes dry and increasingly bitter in the finish. A hoppy but easy drinking west coast- styled IPA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
473ml can. Pours a hazy rose tinged pale orange with a beige head. Heavy aromas of grapefruit, with strong green tea notes, caramel, and a very light aroma of what reminds me of paint thinner. As for taste, big tropical fruit up front with some resinous notes, that lead into a very harsh bitterness, and alcohol burn that ends the beer with lemon candy, and a long bitter citrus pith finish.
