Bottle, thanks to Dalzale. Pours clear bronze/gold - thick cream-coloured head; nose is very herbal: Mint, thyme, juniper, some light citrus, most largely herb-dominated, very floral as well. Flavours of earthy hops, nice herbal notes, soap, fleshy fruit, very spicy, great lingering bitterness. Nice!

This bottle thanks to ncmussel! This one pours light amber and clear. Nose is big evident peaches, oranges, mild grapefruit and pines. Also lends a toasty and lightly caramel malt aroma. Flavor is a solid blend of fruit esters, sweet malts, citric grapefruits, and some resinous pines. Medium dryness in the finish and light to moderate bitterness. A solid IPA with a nice fruity and citrus hop presence. glad to have had some.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle via Atom. Pours a darker amber than I like in an IPA. Aroma is of slight pine and some honey with very little malt presence. Taste is some piney hop but it is a bit odd. Some malt elements but not so much as if the beer is old, just odd. Overall, something that was decent and something I wouldn’t turn down but not something I’d seek out.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at muddy waters. Pours light orange with about a finger of head. Mainly floral aroma with some pine and soap. Pine and flowers are towards the front with an unbalanced soapy bitterness in the finish. Hoppy for the sake of being hoppy with out much balance. Not bad, but I’d still take a two hearted any day if the week over this
