3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle 12fl.oz (whatever that means, guess about 33 cc). Pours a cloudy orange with a minimal off-white head. Leaves a nice lacing.
Aroma is citrus but more to the warm citrus aroma than a fresh aroma. If this makes sense, quite nice though. Maybe more to the malty side with overtones of bread.
taste is complex hoppy with lots of citrus (again) and floral tones with a clear bitter finish that lingers. Medium body with a light carbonation.

Solid IPA. Curiosly sweet nose leading to intense bitterness typical for style. Solid effort.

Bottle thanks to MikeM409. Nose is super piney, citrus, and a slight bit of dank. Pours a slightly hazy orange color, small white head. Taste is immediately bitter with a follow up of orange and a lot of lemon. Not much malt character at all, just a tad bit of light toast and seems a bit thin. Definitely focused on hop bitterness followed by hop flavor. Seems to be more in balance as you drink more, but the bitterness always lingers into the finish in a very drying way, almost too much. Overall, a very nice beer that has a wonderful bouquet, but the flavor falls jus ta tad short.

355 mL bottle. Hazy copper with a small but thick white head. Really nice spicy, citrussy aroma. Tonnes of hops from beginning to end in the flavour, with resin and tangerine leading the way. Bitterness comes through at the end and lingers nicely. Great beer!

Draft at Crystal Mountain. Golden yellow pour. Really nice hop forward aroma. Dry, and plenty bitter with a great hop presence all around. Nice brew.

Wonderful hops aroma in a golden nectar from the gods. Exactly what you’d expect from such a highly rated IPA; great flavor without being over-the-top in your face like some who chase the incorrect notion of west coast hops assault in a haphazard manner. If this were available to me more often it’d be in my inner circle of regulars.
