Poured from the bottle. Hazy orange amber. Mixed bubble head holds up a bit. Nose is citrus piney hop. Sticky lipped first taste. Honey grapefruit pine cone...even a little tart sap...grows on you.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle@home, from Constantino’s, Cleveland, USA. Medium bit sweet parfymic/artificial aroma of overaged mango. Golden color with medium/small white head and clear liquid. Medium slightly sweet’n’sour taste of overaged mango and malts, some citrus. Unbalanced. Medium taste spectrum and long hoppy bitter aftertaste. Medium/light body with medium carbonation. Overall, fresh with basic, even bit organic American nuances. Frighteningly good for drinking, but not so good for tasting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.5 A: Mildly hazed orange brown color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is good and one finger of interrupted lacing is left.
3.5 S: Piney, floral, and citrusy hops. Candied oranges, papaya, and mango. A touch of breadiness and caramel malt sweetness. Pleasant, but fairly mellow compared to more recent releases.
3.75 T: Like the nose, this isn’t an in your face hop bomb. Rather, it’s just a finely crafted IPA of yesteryear. Again a big floral hit with piney undertones. Citrus fruits mentioned above. Bready yeastiness, caramel malts with a pleasant toastiness. Very nice.
3.75 M: Heavier medium body. It’s not quite chewy, but the yeastiness adds something to the body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and super smooth.
3.75 D: Good beer, easy to drink. I will always remember this fondly as I believe my first purchase of a case of craft beer was the ST mixed case.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good aroma but mild. Taste is very interesting. You can tell it has been brewed with several makes. Hop flavor comes through. Grassy taste but in a good way. Little boozy. Good solid ipa

I’m not particularly compelled to go back and try it again, but my experience was that it was very bitter and didn’t have much to it outside of its hop profile, which was strong for the sake of being strong.

So I got this as a part of a self made beer advent calendar and let me sat this is interesting. Not good interesting like some of the other ones I had... Interesting like it smells like a mojito and tastes like gin. Good thing I only got one...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Nice clear cooper. Has a light body which is nice. However I feel the hops bitter taste is quite disappointing. Not a bold taste.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours orange tinged light amber, slightly hazy. Aroma has slightly resny with notable malt. Flavor starts resiny with a big malt finish. Has a pleasing deep dank character. The hops / malt, bitter / sweet, are nicely balanced, though the malt finish is unusually strong for an IPA, more like a 2X IPA. This is really good.
