3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle. Copper color, slight haze, off white head and minimal lacing. Light pine grass hop aroma with floral & citrus scents. Sweeter initial taste than anticipated, but moves to bitter side immediately with burnt piney hop resin, leaves, leather and some grass. Lingering bitterness is just okay.

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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber pour from a bomber, some white head with lots of white lacing. Big citrus and slight pine in the nose. Tastes nice though, more malty than expected from an IPA. The bitterness on the finish is a tad metallic.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not good. Light straw color w/ a head that doesn’t last. Sharp astringent flavor. No discernible malts to balance the bitterness. I drank this very quickly so I could get it over with and move on to something more enjoyable. I hope Slumbrew’s Imperial Red and White IPA that I have in my fridge are better than this.
