3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden yellow with a foamy white head. Has an aroma of citrus fruit and floral notes. Flavor is floral and pine with lots of hops. I would enjoy this more, but there’s something in the finish that is a bit off. I can’t quite put my finger on it. Otherwise a good session ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at Mastikim. Hazy yellow. Weird "green" hoppy aroma with vegetables and some overripe fruits. Dry flavor with "green" hops, slightly fruity, with a vegetal touch and mild bitterness. Quite light-bodied. The vegetal character is strange. This beer’s probably not supposed to be like that.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow! Incredibly juicy brew! As soon as you pop this bottle open, you get a huge whiff of incredibly dank, fresh, exploding pine aroma and the flavor matches. Not bitter. Just rich, fresh, slick, and low alcohol so no boozy flavors to ruin the dankness. Great brew.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden orange with a nice white head that leaves lacing. Nice bit beautiful fruity aroma with grapefruit, citrus hops, pine & resin. Flavor then all of a sudden just falls flat...you can smell something so delicious and the body is like water tasting like the above but just amped down to water. I don;t believe this beer is 65 IBU’s with this thin of a body it would stand out and be overly astringent. Again great aroma to this stone beer but just no body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle pours a pale golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that settles down to reveal some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and citrus. Taste is a pine and citrus hop bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation leaving a tickle on the palate. A great IPA that can be had all evening long and enjoyed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp thin dark yellow. Light head. Moderate hop scent with some malt sweetness. Strong hops with balanced malt. Citrus and pineapple. Mouth drying. A bit of Mellon. Would not miss a beat drinkin a few of these and saving some ABV and probably some calories.
