3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. pleasant aroma of citrus and some pine. color is a deep amber with a small slightly off-white head. flavor is not what many IPA’s have become. it is not a mass infusion of hops in your face type of brew. instead its kinda subtle but in a good way. citrus character seems to linger without a lot of bitterness. nice beer.

Bomber. Poured a clear copper with a thin off-white head that left light lacing. Big IPA aroma of grapefruit, orange, pine and a light black pepper background? The flavor put forth grapefruit, pine and a nice caramel background. Medium body and a mild bitterness throughout. Very Decent!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle via trade with MrBendo. Pours a rather dark copper/ orange color with a frothy ivory head that overtook the glass I poured it into, after cleaning up the mess, the head was still as high as the rim of the glass. Resinous pine and orange aromas along with some sweet malt notes. Bitter and hop forward. Somewhat astringent. Flower, orange, grapefruit and pine hop flavors. Clean, bitter aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Straw color with a thin, light white head. Nice moderately thick, sticky palate. Floral, citrusy hop aroma with a clean profile. Smooth taste, clean lemony hop finish that lingers nicely on the palate, but doesn’t wreck the palate. Very drinkable while still being hoppy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a crisp orange/bronze color with a decent creamy head. Smell of pines/grass and hops dominate the nose. Pine is the overwhelming smell. Tastes very hoppy with a hint of pine and sweetness. The finish is nice and sweet and the hops don’t dominate this IPA like many others. It isn’t my favorite IPA, but overall an extremely good beer.
