3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (courtesy of Lopez... thanks again, brutha!). Pours an orangey-amber, slightly hazy, medium white head, so so retention but good lacing. Nose is kinda pissy, hint of dankness, some malt underneath. Mouth is medium bodied, big and fruity up front -- pineapple and melon, followed by bread, some caramel, fading into a long and nicely bitter finish. Liked this one and wish they’d distribute in the Chicago area... I’d most certainly make a trade for them... Finch’s, a draft pick, a brewery TBD + cash.

Hazy color, hoppy aromas. Super bitter and thick. The taste of pine is very strong and it goes all the way till the end. Not so easy to drink but is a good IPA

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle, in trade with a coworker. Thanks Mandy! Pours a clear, amber color with an off-white head and just a little lacing. Aroma is hoppy, orange, pineapple, mango. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bread, light caramel, bitter hops, grass, pine, some grapefruity citrus, with an assertive bitter finish that lingers for a while. A solid IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle in trade long time want list beer! Pour has an orange highlighted amber color with a thin cap of white head that fell off. Aroma has some pine, mild bitterness, light citrus, and caramel malts. Mouth feel is solid for the style with good coating and medium low carbonation. Flavor brings the bitterness up a notch with a fair bit of malts. The bright hop aroma is more of a pines and resins with a lingering pleasant finish. Drinks a bit big but the abv is not on the light side either.
