3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear gold with a white head.
The aroma is earthy, piney hops.
The flavor is bitter and resiny. The bitterness falls somewhere between smooth and coarse.
Good solid IPA but needs a little more balance to be perfect.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear dark yellow with thick bubbly white head. Aroma is faint citrusy hops with some bready malt. Taste is sweet maltiness upfront that fades into juicy citrus hops on the follow through. Aftertaste is piney citrus hops that linger nicely. Palate is somewhat thin and sticky. Overall good balance and very drinkable IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from Downer Wine and Spirits. Pours a clear, amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine, floral, a little bit of citrusy grapefruit. Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is a little sweet, mostly bitter, hoppy, piney, some grass, some grapefruit, with a bitter finish that lingers for a while. Pushes the edge on bitterness for me. Close, but not quite over the edge.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden amber with an off-white head and a few medium pieces of debris. Moderate piney, citrus, spicy hop aromas. Flavor is mostly of spicy, earthy, and pine hops, toasty malts. Honestly I don’t think this is that great an IPA.
