3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(16oz can) Very cloudy orange amber body with a medium to big, stiff off-white head. Aroma of straw, musk, but not very strong. Medium body, resin. Fairly sweet malt flavor, fruity with mild grapefruit, tangerine, some mango; also wet grass and pine; bitterness is moderate and floral. A little different, and some good things going on, but something holds it back from being better; I’m not sure what.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A great beer ! Pours a deep copper color with a big fluffy head that laces around the glass very nicely. This is my kind of IPA, well balanced with hops, resin, pine and citrus. Clean refreshing and not overly bitter like alot of American IPAs ! Will be buying more of these for sure !

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the Waldorf. Really muddy 14 karat gold with a small eggshell head. Aroma of candied oranges, toffee, brown sugar and caramel malts. Flavor similar. Not at all bright or aggressive. A bit boring. Pass.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry hoppy notes with light caramel malt notes. Taste is also dominated by light dry bitter hoppy notes with some floral undertones and some semi-sweet caramelized malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Overall, I thought this was lacking some hops punch but it is still an enjoyable beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy, amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops with some caramel malts. Flavor wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for from the aroma. The hops aren’t as up front as they were on the aroma. Slightly hoppy finish but nothing too crazy.
