3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
draft- stickyness, and amarillo hops dominate this piney, fairly hoppy ipa that is a repeat purchase in my eyes.

This was a pretty nice and hoppy example for a good price. Try this one if you get a chance.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a copper-bronze color creating a 1" beige head. Admirable head retention throughout the glass with spider-web lacing. Aroma is a pleasant blend of citrus, pine needles, pineapple, toffee, caramel and a touch of freshly cut hay. Mouthfeel was a bit light and a tad too fizzy. Less CO2 and a bit more body would have made it nice. Flavor profile seems well balanced starting off with a sweet caramel covered citrus fruit presence followed by a moderate blast of grapefruit/lemon rind and pine resin hoppy bitterness in the finish. A easy goin’ sessionable IPA with a nice balance.

22oz bottle I shared with my cousin Michelle. Cool story on the label of where the name 113 came about. Nice amber color. Aroma of towering hop aromas built on a malt foundation. Amazing florals during the pour. Bitter flavors on the palate right to the dry finish. Very simple, but I wish I had another.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Clear amber gold with a tan head. Well balanced caramel malt and grassy hop. Dry, bitter finish. A bit one dimensional, but it does what it does well.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rusty orange pour with a reasonably lasting beige skin. Nose of lavender, toffee, and fruit bubblegum. As it warms, a truly offensive suggestion of dried pus on a used band-aid kind of envelops the rest. Tastes mildly of citrus with expired inferences of buttered toast and wet wood. Finishes with iron and chlorine treated water. A mist of floral shampoo disseminates quickly after swallowing. Coating. Palate is medium bodied and somewhat chemical, which is hardly a surprise at this point. Drinkable and even reasonably refreshing, despite its rather major flaws. These would likely be tempered quite a bit if consumed extremely fresh. Let’s emphasize extremely. Thanks Jason!
