Pours cloudy orage with a thin white head. Some citrus hops and malts on the nose. Too much carbonation. Pine. Bitter. Would like this to be smoother.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Noho Brewfest: This one pours a fairly clear, darker golden color. There was a good, dense off white head on it. There was a BIG pine hop nose. The taste was good. It wasn’t as bitter as the nose would make you think, but still has a good bite to it. Some malts in the background. Nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The look is clear, yellow in color, with a white head. The smell is skunky, fruits, and leaves. The taste is citrus, bitterness, hops, and ok.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: rustic copper with a central cap and confluent ring of light peanut. Hazy. Fleeting spot lace. Dark and murky for the style.
S: grapefruit and resin. Some earthy and spicy hops as well. Malt is sweet, caramel and stronger than I anticipated.
T: Bitter, moreso than I had expected after the nose. Nice herbal hops. There is a slight fruitiness somewhere in here - faintly like fruity pebbles. Interesting. Hints of wood.
M: Medium on full bodied for the style with moderate/reserved carbonation with a wet finish.
O: this beer is eccentric, pulling from different angles. Sometimes bitter, sometimes sweet, somewhat plain, somewhat intriguing.
Serving type: bottle

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pour is an orangish gold, a bit hazy. A white head which leaves a good amount of lacing. Smell is citrusy with pine and skunky hops. Taste is sharp with hops, bitter orange and lemon peel. Has kind of a hay or grass thing going on that is prevalent in the nose as well. Tastes a bit off. Not terrible but a flavor and smell that is hard to identify. Not in love, but it's okay.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Piney, blunt and dry hop aroma. Murky orange appearance. Sweet, syrupy malt over moderately bitter notes. Medium to think body, not too heavy. Definitely an ’east coast IPA’.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz into a belgian 16.9oz stemmed glass. Big, huge hoppy aroma, dry pine, juicy citrus, and a mighty backbone of malts. Pours a deep orange/amber/rusted bronze, head retains a small 2cm covering with sporadic islands. Taste is dank hops, sweet citrus ready to pick and triumphant resin coated textures. Mouthfeel is sweet, bitter and juicy. This is an excellent ipa.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange amber with medium off-white head and soapy lace. Nose of caramel, grapefruit, pine, a little stale smelling hops. Medium body. Sweet malty with decent hop flavor. Moderate bitterness and a dry finish. Not all that fresh.
