Bottle for dinner at Wegmans. A pretty good mainstream craft IPA. Good hop and malt balance with spices and tips of sweet caramel. An odd bitter unpleasantness at the end. Some funkiness perhaps which doesn’t bide well in an IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is light sweet malts, honey and clove. Taste is the same with a tad of earthiness, citrus and tart. Quite well balanced with slight bitterness on the tip. Mellows out however. Appearance is a slightly hazy gold with a laced medium head that retains quite well.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Der grasig zitrusartige Beginn gefällt, frisch, süffig, vielleicht etwas wässrig. Die Hopfigkeit an sich gefällt, spritzig. Der Hintergrund könnte allerdings intensiver sein, die reine Hopfigkeit reicht hier nicht aus. Hell würzig. 8/9/10/8/9/8

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is medium to full with fresh, bushy slightly citric elements. The color is an appropriate light-medium golden with a slim white head. The remarkable thing about this beer happens after you’ve got it in your mouth. (I typically get half of my judging done before it touches my lips.) The beer is medium bodied, remarkably clean and crisp and with a resonant bitter finish

Slightly hazy shinny light golden with a meringue lasting white head and effervescent carbo. Aroma is strong pineapple with some grapefruity notes. Flavor is same tropical fruits with just the right amount of malt, very hoppy but remains very well balanced, also the finish has just enough dryness. Light palate l, refreshing and tasty
