2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft and can. Clear golden body with frothy white head. Raw, leaf hops dominate the aroma. Notes of resin, toasted grain. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Plant taste on top of husky grain. Chewy. Tastes of resin. Little finesse. Not my favorite type of IPA.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz can. Pours clear orange copper with a medium pillowy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is sweet tropical fruits and dank hops and some pepper.
The flavor is a little sweet fruit with some dank earthy hops and a big charred lightly metallic bitterness that lingers. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, it could have been a decent dank IPA, but I couldn’t get past overwhelming charred metallic bitterness in the finish.

On tap at the brewery - gold in color with a minimal head. Not much of a nose but what’s there is floral. Hoppy and dry.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This one is ok, but nothing to get to excited about. Aroma is citrus grapefruit, flavor is assist a bit soapy upfront with mild malt so the finish overwhelms. Had this in tap, can’t recommend
