3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Batch 11-12-13. Clear golden body. Frothy white head. Aroma of resin, raw hops, grapefruit rind, pine. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Intense resin hop flavor with some biscuit, bread notes in the background. I guess I’ve lost my taste for resin, pine tar hop bombs.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured with no head
See through amber pour with minimal to no lacking.
Off the nose: cirtus, pine with sweet malt in the back end. I tasted some biscuit on the back end.
Hoppy with well masked 9.4abv
I recommend this beverage. The price is reasonable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
ENJOY BY 12/13/13: Distinctly floral and herbal on the nose with a strong hoppy mouthfeel dominated by grapefruit citrus and piney hops over the somewhat oily texture, hints of vegetal complexity and subtle caramel malts linger through the lightly spicy, creamy, and smooth finish. Packs a punch, but you don’t taste it, just feel it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12/13/13, on tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served showing a very clear & sparkling, golden color, with a nice layer of fairly persistent, soft white & silky head foam, and ribbony cling to the lacing. The aroma was perfumy & expressive citrus as grapefruit, with a touch of sweetness, and smooth malt. A substantial, but non-abusive alcohol presence permeated both the nose & flavor. The taste also impressed with a strikingly deep hop bitterness that was citrus & rind, with a touch of resin, dryness, and most of all, a very lingering nature. Medium+ bodied, with a bit of a slick mouthfeel, and full flavor.

Enjoy By 04-01-13. Draught@Rattle N’Hum. Clear golden color, small white head. Pine-resiny, grapefruity aroma. Medium-bodied. Extremely fresh bitterness. Lots of pine needles and grapefruit. Some backing sweet malty-fruityness. Long lingering bitterness. One of the best IPA’s I’ve had.
