3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to czar, thanks a lot bro! Pours a good copper with a medium white head that leaves really sticky and foamy lacing to the side of the glass. Nose is of hop oils, dank and a bit rough overall. This smells like what I imagine hard hop candies would, really. Taste is pretty sweet but also quite bitter; features caramel, resin and alcohol. It is a bit acrid, even. Anyway, body is medium and carbonation low to medium. Overall this was OK, a bit rough but still drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap - cloudy copper color with nice 2 finger head. Aroma - mango, pineapple, lemon and pine sap. Taste - huge tropical fruit flavors with resiny pine coating tongue. Palate - best part of beer. Perfect medium body and lively carbonation. Resiny sticky hops coat tongue and mouth leaving you with full bitterness throughout each gulp!! Overall - one of my favorite IPAs on tap. Had this from the bottle also and not quite as good. Would be 4.6 on tap.

Received this through a trade and was impressed with Short’s brewery! A solid IPA that delivered a strong hop start and then mellowed out as it finished!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12 oz). Courtesy of czar, thanks! Almost clear golden/amber with a small off-white head and little lacing. Aroma is of pine, caramel, some spiciness and earthy notes. Taste is also of caramel, malt, spices, earthy notes and medium bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Dry finish. Sticky bitter aftertaste. Decent IPA. Tasty, but too bitter and sticky for my liking. Not super easily drinkable.
