11.12.13 Batch. Crystal clear golden yelliw color. Got this right off the delivery truck st Joe Canals West Deptford. The aroma is flowery, but not overly strong. The aroma should be strong for a good IPA. You can clearly taste the hops however.

Enjoy by 11-12-13 bottle. Pours a clear amber orange with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of pine and resin with underlying grapefruit and caramel. Flavor starts with bitter pine and grass and has a growing resin note and a touch of onion with a hint of grain in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap 6 oz. sampler at Westover Beer Haus in Arlington, VA.
Clear, bright amber with an off-white head and very good lacing.
Aroma of passionfruit, tropical fruit, mango, pineapple and caramel.
Taste of passionfruit, mango, citrus, pineapple and caramel.
Medium body and medium carbonation with a silky mouthfeel.
Vey hoppy, yet balanced--more by fruit than maltiness.

Nice flavor beer with a great citrusy taste from the hops. This entire series, regardless of date, is rather good for a hophead.
