Draft at Steel Toe. From notes. Citrus and earthy floral hops with a solid malt backbone to balance it out. Enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is hazy amber with white head and little lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine malts. Taste is moderatly sweet with nice citrus and piney notes, caramel, long lasting bitterness and astrigent-dry finish. Low-medium body and medium carbonation. A good ipa but nothing impressive.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sadly, this may have been older than it should have been. Aroma of fruity malts, citrus hops, and slight resin. Pours bronze with a nice medium head. Taste had nice thick citrus notes with apricot and malts. Not to bad but I want to try it fresh next time.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at brewery. Bubblegummy hop aroma. Beautiful, hazy amber body with similarly beautiful lace. Really nice sweet hop flavor. Hint of hemp in the nose while sipping. I’m a huge fan.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle shared with Anndiesel. Hazy, unfiltered orange-apricot color. Frothy, steady white head. A pretty classic US IPA, well done, with just a pinch more hop character that throws it over the top. Rather clean for the style, very nice citrus and melon hop tones. Really grew on me as I sipped at it. Subtle hop decadence, remains drinkable, great beer. This beer should be in sixpacks.

(22oz bomber) clear gold, sparse white bubbles. Nose is hugely dank, oniony, some citrus in there too. Taste of grapefruit peel, bitter oils, too bitter and some floral esters here.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The best IPA I have had anywhere. The citrus-like aroma is subtle, but it pleasantly adds to the flavor.
