3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can pour...cool little skinny can! Hazy, golden; short, pillowy, ivory head.
Some fairly pungent (good way), aromas of bubblegum, unripe bananna, lemon and maybe a bit of tangerine.
Flavors are hoppy strong, but well balanced in bitterness. Some faint sweet malt on the entry, but all IPA on the way down.
Maybe a tad sticky on the palate, but refreshing overall.
A very impressive IPA. Not overwhelming, just a good, solid entry into this style. Would go great with a basket of wings.....mmmmm!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can poured into pint glass. Aroma is true to the name with s strong hit of resin, combined with nice floral notes. Appearance is a nice clear, reddish gold color with a nice 1 inch white foam head. Taste is very bitter, I say that in a good way. I can actually apply the umami keyword here, as it hits on all cylinders. Palate is slick with average carbonation, not too much nor too little. Finish is long and bitter. This was an excellent beer.

(can) The aroma is clean and fairly hoppy. Clear golden complexion with this white head. The flavor is piney resin but surprisingly smooth. The ABV is extremely well hidden.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a beautiful Double IPA. Fresh floral notes and lots of dry hops in the aroma, very clean taste. At 103 IBU and 9.1% you might expect a lot of alcohol on the palate, but you get lovely hops and a lingering aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I really like this. The flavor is just awesome and the finish is so clean, crisp, and bitting it just begs for another taste. The aroma is probably the only let down. I just wanted it to hit me over the head, but it did not. The design on the can gives me the impression of an eastern european vibe. But what’s so good is the sweet juicy hop with tons of resin goodness that is punctuated by a sweet and complimentary malt delivery system. The finish is the best part: bitter, clean, and...wow feel that coating of hop oil? Saint Lupulin, you know what I’m sayin’...
