2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Tiffany’s in Kalamazoo. Pours murky water brown/orange with thick light beige caking head. Nose is fresh sweet citrus and faint pine. Flavor is dry and mellow with some burnt out citrus hops and earthy malts/astringency that are attempting a take over. Might have simply missed this one’s peak by a few months, but what’s left is a little dissapointing.

12oz bottle- pours a deep golden color. Pretty good hops scent but doesn’t promise too much. Wow, lots of nicely balanced hops. No medicinal flavor. Doesn’t quite feel like an 8% and has none of the lemon or orange zest.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Decent ipa. Deep resinous notes of pine followed by bitter citrus. The palate on this one is extremely bitter, a tongue torcher.

Draft. Hazy, dark gold. Malty, piney aroma. Malty, bitter, bitter palate. Not a citrusy, hoppy IPA. Not complex, just simple well-done bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is malty, orange peel, lemon, pine, some kind of spice. Appearance is rust orange, light light beige head. Taste is spice, a weird savory spice that is immediately off putting, some pine, bitterness, tons of malt, not good. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, crisp carbonation, that horrible saltiness is lingering. Overall, this is completely missing the mark.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap at Crunchy’s, slightly hazy golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice orange, grapefruit, some slight pine, grass into some biscuit. Taste was a mix of sweet orange, grapefruit, some slight pine, grass, touch of bread, finishing very bitter.

The aroma is excellent. The appearance is as well. It reminded me of PGGB. It hits the palate perfectly. I give it a 100.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Copper colored body with a very mild cloudiness. Gray-tinted head fades quick & leaves only small bits of lacing behind. Very floral nose, abundant grapefruit & hop oil with white pepper in the background. Taste is very bitter. Grapefruit pith, bitter citrus rind, intense floral earthiness, rose petals, oily resins, & a heavy pine needled sting that lingers. Huge hemp oily, perfumey, & resinous finish. Lots of white pepper, bitter grapefruit, & botanicals, too. Sharp mouth feel, medium bodied. Good beer, maybe a bit much at times, but still quite enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from gimmethefunk, thanks Pat. Poured a good looking honey brown body with an average sized frothy off white head. Aroma of pineapple, guava, mango, grains, dough, bread, and hop cones. Medium body, syrupy mouthfeel, average to softer carbonation and a lingering aftertaste with a slight hint of heat. Flavor of yellow grapefruit, citrus rind, pineapple, hop cones, dry grass, bread crutsts, grains and lemon zest. Definitely digging this one.

Healthy orange very clear pour with quarter inch of off-white head. Really great citrus hop aroma, juicy grapefruit and bitter citrus rind. Soft carbonation, tingly oily mouthfeel and above average viscosity, bitter dry finish. Taste is a bitter wallop of hops. Pert bitter rind, juicy citrus and tropical fruit, too, some nuttiness. Very bitter, straightforward DIPA

Hop hippity hop. Woah... Less full bodied than your typical double ipa but with all the bitter. It kind of burns my whole body and eats the enamel off my teeth... No real flavor to the insane and overpowering bitter.... But yeah it’s pretty lighter and quenchey... Yeah....
