3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from TRT. Pours a hazy straw color with a thick frothy white head. Aroma of older citrus, caramel malt, and finishing with rotted lemons. Taste bitter lemon, orange, and grapefruit, grass, and caramel malt sweetness. Def the best beer I’ve had so far from Shorts.

Aroma is yeasty and bread. Flavor is strange, biscuit, yeast bread wih a super bitter dry finish. Quite disappointed in this one. Was a hyper beer release and I think it was poor I would buy 1 before investing in a sixer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very earthy. Pine and resin, a whole lot of hops. Bitter, dry, some grapefruit. Very crisp and punchy. Full and strong.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 2/05/16 so very fresh ... Cloudy golden pour with a thin white soapy head and light lacing .... Aroma of citrusy and floral hops ... Has a earthy and piney aroma as well .... Taste is of citrusy and rindy hops with grapefruit, orange and earthy fruits .... Has piney qualities and a distinct floral hop .... Dry and lightly bitter with a juicy fruit malt to it .... Dry fresh and decent

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy and gold in color. There is some good lacing but little head retention. Smells of nothing apart from some honeysuckle. Tastes grassy and hoppy. Quite disappointing to be honest.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Bottle is about 2.5 weeks old. Pours a pretty dark copper. Few inches of frothy white head and some lacing. Piney aroma. Mouthfeel is pretty thick and malty. Really, too thick and heavy for an IPA. Taste is bitter pine.... and not much else. Very one dimensional without a lot of flavor. If you like thick, heavy, piney and very bitter IPAs, this is for you. It ain’t for me.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has a nice sweet hop flavor, with a somewhat cloudy light yellow golden color. Has some ok hop flavors, but is quickly masked with bitterness. Just your average IPA with nothing much to show for it

On tap at BW3 in Holland, MI. First time trying this beer and it isn't so hoppy to start with. Going down nice with the wings
