It’s a hoppy mess. The almost overpowering hops kill most all the other flavors. Good thing they are great hops! Nice thick head that stays for the entire time with a lot of lacing. It poured a deep murky Amber that was just gorgeous. Floral aroma, citrus with a hint of pine and straw. Tastes like hops and not much else a hint of citrus and alcohol with a nice hay-citrus aftertaste. This is a great ipa but the hops are strong and there’s no malt taste at all to speak of. I would drink those again though.

Poured in the glass it is a hazey golden color with a medium head. Aroma is very floral with some pine and citrus. The taste has some bitterness up front, pretty hoppy and also some pine, resin and some citrus. Pretty good finish.

Bottle from Siciliano’s. Pours orange with a thick white head. Leaves a lot of lacing. I’m not getting much on the nose. Definite pine sol on the tongue. Finishes clean. It’s nice to have an IPA to cut through the phlegm.

A gift from Amy. Bronze, clear with nice yellowish head. Mildly sour flower in the aroma. Malt, flower, sweet toffee. Really big grapefruit bitterness in the aftertaste.

bottle. Poured hazy medium amber with a creamy off-white head. Fresh perfumery hop aroma. Full bodied, prickly dry mouthfeel with an astringent finish. Flavour is all hop, peppery, herbal, tart citrus notes. This beer delivers a punch, a nice sipper.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours a hazy light amber with a thick tan head. nice soapy lacing. aroma is piney citrus hops, toasted malt, and tropical fruit. Taste starts sweet and gradually becomes resinous. Ridiculous how balanced this is. Medium body and carbonation with creamy/slick mouth fell. Finishes very dry. My favorite shorts product yet. Not a big shorts fan, but this is really good.
