4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at The Pony Bar UES, NYC. Pours clear gold with a small, white foam head. Lovely aroma with good urine notes, orange and other citrus, background pine. Medium to big sweet flavor with some spicy pine notes, a bit more pee, some gritty earth and grass, orange and grapefruit. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish with continued pee, sturdy citrus fruits, resinous pine, palate-kicking earth, mild pale malts and bread. Great stuff. Well balanced. Exceptionally drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured a golden amber color with a thin coating of off white head. Aroma has juicy hops, citrus rind, grapefruit, caramel malt underneath, and light perfume alcohol. Mouth feel is medium light with good carbonation. Flavor is not lacking on the hops either, creeping bitterness, citrus, sweetness from the malt, and some tropical tangerine. Clean and flavorful without getting into the overdone territory.

32oz growler picked up from Pizz5116. Poured a cloudy dark straw color with a finger of foamy white head. Aroma and taste mimic each other. Lots of orange pulp and zest, pineapple, dank pine, and bready malts.

Poured from bottle. Color is golden with a thick white head. Great fruit and citrus aroma. Taste isn’t as bitter as I was expecting at 138 IBUs. They did a great job of balancing the hops and the malt. Delicious beer.

Liter growler shared by Ed5388, thanks Ed. Poured a slightly milky orange body with a bubbly whitish head. Aroma is great, dank, lime and clementine citrus, slight cat piss. Flavor is good but not as good as the aroma, notes of old wet citrus, bitterness, wet toast, dry grains, rind and skme seltzer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazy golden-orange body, medium to thin white head, spotty lacing. Grapefruit, pine, resin, and some florals. Assertive pale and caramel malts fight back against a nice hop profile... eventually winning out in the flavor profile and reducing the appeal of this beer. Medium to full bodied, moderate to mild carbonation, assertive bitterness, a tad sweet and lightly boozy. A tad too malty for my liking.

Tap pour. Orange copper color in glass with ecru head. Full webbing all the way down. Pretty. Fresh aroma of orange and snap cookies. Dank. Medium body that houses high abv. Good hop balancing. Some grapefruit enters the scene. Good round flavors. Pleasant.

On tap at Top Hops. A fresh, tasty big IPA. Grassy, vegetal hops are well balanced with rich malts. A solid 4 in my book!
