4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
According to the folks at the brewery, this was brewed once for Latona’s 15th anniversary (in Seattle), and once again for the brewery.
Pours a golden ale with a solid sheet of white foam and leaves rope lace. Grapefruit, tangerine, mango, mint and grass - really digging the fruit in the nose here - a winner from this aspect. Nice sweetness combated with a healthy bitterness accented with peach and hemp and grapefruit rinds. Medium bodied with moderate on hi carb and a wet, slick finish. A really good beer. I’ve had over five pints in the last three days.
This brewery kills IPA’s for me. Love ’em.
Serving type: on-tap

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose of moderately sweet pale and caramel malt some residual sugar orange and danky hop notes soft pepper and floral as well. Pours hazy orange amber great head and sticky lace. Flavors up front of sweeter pale and caramel malts toast on the mid palate dry herbal finish. A little dirt pine and dank. Soft fruity citrus. Thinkin it'll be super sweet but dries out and finishes rather drinkable given the heftiness of the initial malt impression. Solid.
"Meh" (Jon, 2006).

Golden color. Frothy white head. Piney, pale malt. OK balance, not a lot of depth. Decent simple IPA, but nothing more.

Tap at Devil Craft. Only the 5th rating and it has made it to Japan! Pale amber colour, small off white head. Aroma ultra bitter hops, bit citrus, resin. Taste similar, lots of bitterness, bit of spicy malt, bitter finish. Bit of a bitterness kick. Nice but not that exciting.
