3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can given to me by atom. Light in color; almost golden with a medium sized frothy head. I’m surprised by the lighter color on this. Lots of pine in the aroma with a good amount of orange and grapefruit. Pretty nice. Taste is grapefruit, pine, caramel, more fruit towards the finish. Some resinous hop character. Light to medium body. This a really good IPA that caught me off guard. Thanks for the beer, buddy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can mail-ordered from the brewery. Underrated IPA. The aroma on this is solidly potent. I got some serious Simcoe goodness from this one right off the bat. Strong, dank herbal notes go right for my nose. This isn’t all that malty which allows the hops to do their thing. Clean, bitter citrus is evident like pineapple and grapefruit. Long, dry finish. Excellent IPA in a can.

Can. Pours hazy gold with frothy, off-white head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine hops, honey, and biscuit malt. Flavor is earthy hops with sweet undertones throughout. Light/medium body with light carbonation and warmth. Solid beer that’s very smooth without much bitterness which makes it a good beer to introduce people to IPA’s.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an slightly cloudy gold, with a fluffy white head and good lacing. The nose is citrus, pine, and caramel malts. Medium in body, and very refreshing mouthfeel. The flavor is very well balanced between the tasty malts and flavorful and nicely bitter hops. The finish shows both fruit and a prefect degree of bitterness. Exceptionally refreshing and easy drinking. An exceptional IPA.
