3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This IPA pours a light orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is floral and citrus with a touch of sweetness. A medium to lighter bodied IPA. Malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. Hops are floral and citrusy. Mildly bitter IPA. Perhaps a little thin but a very decent IPA. It’s a little mild in comparison to most PNW IPAs but not bad. Aroma is soft and full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange-brown pour with a two finger, creamy off white head that has great retention and leaves some grainy lacing. Aroma is caramel, toast, light nutty notes, bright, sweet citrus notes and light berry notes. Flavor is caramel, toast, husky grain, spicy and citrus hops and mineral notes. A little pine and light medicinal notes come out as it warms. Light to medium body, medium, sharp carbonation, fairly dry feel throughout with a surprising hop acid bite, despite not tasting or smelling all that hoppy, or being all that bitter. Decent overall.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours hazy orange with lasting lace. Big malty IPA flavors - marmalade, especially - soft hops, with a malty rather than dry finish. Overall, a nice beer for those IPA lovers looking for big flavor and soft hops.

"this beers ok. the last reviewer says "delicate hops". that’s a nicer way to say that it’s a tad underwhelming. closer to a pale than an ipa, especially if you’re a hophead."

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle at Outlaws in Watford. Appearance: finger white head, straw yellow color, clear, ok lacing. Aroma: floral, orange citrus, light caramel. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, bitter finish, sticky texture. Taste: light sweet caramel and light citrus sweetness, into heavy floral bitterness. Overall, decent beer, balance is off a bit, and the malty sweetness is lackluster. Worth trying, but not ideal.
