3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy spruce and citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable brew that exceeded my expectations.

Aroma is citrus, toffee and a background of spices and bread. The flavor is citrus, relatively strong fruit/raspberries, malts, mild sweetness and a dry/tart/bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber to snifter (shared by Tmoney99). Looks good; a semi-transparent orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; hoppy with a prominent pale malt backbone thatís both a bit sweet and boozy. Tastes like it smells, but with a bit more of a tropical hop profile. Average on the palate. A solid IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle, thanks to tmoney99. Mostly clear orange amber color. Thin off-white head, loose bits of lace. Spicy toasty malt in the nose. Kind of a toasty piney hop flavor. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Medium body. Smooth, lightly soft lighter carbonation. Very dry finish. Solid, enjoyable, smooth and easy drinking sort of spicy lighter IPA.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this on draft over the weekend. Cloudy orange color. Lite on the hops taste yet very refreshing and very smooth on the palate. This is one I would defiantly get again and again.

A: Really nice copper, thick foamy two finger head. Nice lacing.
S: Canít really tell what I am smelling in this one. I get bready notes with the smell of the carbonation. Some caramel and pine.
T: Toasty bready malt backbone with some caramel sweetness. Not much in the taste of hops
M: A little thin but not a lot of sweetness and easy to drink.
O: This was just okay for me in the bottle, however I remember really liking this much much better on draft.
