4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasty IPA, big and grainy and herbal, with a pungent hop middle that rolls into a huge bitter finish. Starts semisweet, with a great earthy malt middle, and then the hops explode into an oily IBU finish, funky and strong with a lovely citric herbal backbone. Finishes hoppy and happy. Very nice IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light orange with an ivory, foamy head. Piney, hop aroma with grapefruit and sourdough. Moderately strong bitterness that hangs on for a little while. Medium to light bodied, with the carbonation making it feel lighter. Remembered this being better on tap at Muddy Waters with dinner, by itself from a bottle - i didn’t enjoy it as much.

Bottle from alpar! Thanks Alex! Pours light copper with an off-white head. Aroma is pine, resin, florals and some dankness. Taste is sweet with citrus and some sharp bitterness that is ultimately balances nicely. It’s a little perfumey, but really, pretty nice. I could see myself putting back o few of these.

On tap at SPSBF. Pours a clear gold with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a really nice dank pine hops with a bit of marijuana and a hint of a malt back bone. Flavor begins with dank pine up front that mellows to earthy pine and grass with a backing light grain note.

Pours a clear golden/lt amber color with a thin tan head. Aroma has a touch of sweet malt and some musty, spicy hops. Flavor has some tea and spicy hops...nice bitter...some underlying maltiness but not too sweet. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is dry wit a touch of hoppy spice.

22oz bottle from PortableParty, Pour is a nice orange color with a lasting thin head, nose is hoppy, taste is hoppy with a surprising balance, no really, it is balanced perhaps due to hop fade.. a little thin but still quite tasty

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. This is a good ipa. Aroma has citrus with hops. Dry, bitter flavor with more citrus & flowers. Good palate, and very fresh. Its not balanced, it is hop-forward. And that is OK.
