3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Comes out of the tap a pretty clear amber with a thick, find-bubbled ivory head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, not strong but tempting. Hoppy flavor has strong woody and hay notes,a little bitterness, a hint of grapefruit. Mouthfeel is firm and smooth, and leaves a lasting tingle. North or south, a worthy IPA.

12oz bottle. Pours an amber color with minimal white head. Has a sweeter, maltier aroma than most IPAs. Somewhat sweet flavor with a grassy, bitter finish. Not bad, different from the norm.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: pours a clear golden color with a big off white head. Aromas of grapefruit and sweet fruit. Taste is bitter, but has an easy drinking, almost watery mouthfeel. Normally watery is not what I want, but right now I actually am enjoying it... It’s clean and fresh... Drinkable.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a one finger frothy off-white head that left some decent lacing. The nose is more slightly sweet crystal malt than it is hops, which is usually a very bad sign for an IPA. Very muted citrusy hop character. The flavor is overly sweet as well, hella strong on the sweet iced tea crystal malt. Very minimal hop bitterness, this doesn’t even come close to IPA levels of hoppiness. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation, slightly sticky and clingy on the back end from all the residual sugars. Awful IPA.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy orange-amber color with a small creamy orange-tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet and malty with notes of lemon and grapefruit. The flavor was bitter, tart and sour with strong grapefruit moderate lemon and lime. Long bitter, tart and sour grapefruit finish. Medium body. Ok.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice golden color with a little white head and a little bit of white lacing. A mild malty aroma which exactly explains how it taste, nothing to write home about here. Just missing a little something like hops

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy burnt orange color, with one finger of head that lasts a while, with good lacing. the aroma has lots going on, citrus hops, earthy hops, clove, maybe black licorice, along with sweet light to medium roasted malts. the taste is well balanced, a powerful hop presence, lots of spices, clove, honey, licorice, citrus, and other earthy notes. overall, this is a floral hop IPA, that is well balanced with citrus hops and a good malt backbone.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, courtesy of nimbleprop – thanks! Pours an amber orange, nice clarity and two fingers of creamy sand colored head. Thick sheets of lacing and great head retention. Ripe citrus hops, grapefruit and light tropical fruit blend, a faint dank herbal scent, and caramel malt. The taste is soft up front, herbals and dirty florals. The citrus fruit is missing, but the malt base works very well with the florals. Good flavors, but mild in intensity. It does have a little more bite at the finish, but overall mild for a DIPA.
