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.

Draft pour at Stella’s in GR. The nose is pine and sticky resin. A hoppy hoppy IPA that veers into hopslam style territory in bitterness but with less sweetness and restraint. Truly a favorite for hopheads - definitely not a beer to take lightly. Good stuff from Shorts

Bottle thanks to DrSilverworm - nose is resin, pine, and citrus, granted I’m a little stuffed up since I stopped taking my allergy meds. Malty backbone. Long and modetately bitter finish. Quite hoppy and I think the misses will enjoy.

Greatest IPA known to man. Lace, body, aroma, it’s all there. I’ve had at least 60 IPA’s in my day and I always come back to this. Perfection in my book.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
