Beautiful beer. Frothy head good lacing. Citrus and grass. Almost balanced. Light fruity notes. Sticky mouth feel. Fair ipa, I wish it was fresher.

Pour hazy blond, two finger white head.
Smell super big floral hops, sticky, pine needles
Taste bitter floral sticky hops
Mid body. Think Ruination may be easier to drink
Good if you are into being punched in the face with bitter hops, well done

Nice aroma of fresh hops. Taste is hop forward over a crisp ale without being overly bitter or strong on alcohol. I would say this sets the standard for what IPA should be judged from.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Porters. Pours amber, with a white patchy head. Very malty nose, toffee, caramel, hay etc and some yeast. Some lighter hops and pine in the background. Quite malty flavour, nice hoppy finish. Dry yeasty and malty finish, medium body and carbonation. I suspect this keg was neither the freshest nor the most recently tapped, because was not as good or as hoppy an IPA as I expected. Will have to rerate.

Bottle pour. Hazy golden with small to medium white head. Hoppy is the only way to describe this beer.

Poured from tap to glass. Slightly hazy orange hue with white head. Aroma is orange, pine, citrus peel, spicy, straw. Mouthfeel is nice with medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness initially followed by a big hop bitterness that extends through the finish. Overall this is a great shelf IPA.

Bottle at Bar Liberte in Philly. Drank from the bottle. Pungent, dank aroma. Lots of citrus rind. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and slightly sticky. Taste is grapefruit rind all the way. Very bitter. Nothing subtle about this. Hops are the only thing going on with this beer. No pretext of balance, but that’s OK sometimes. Pretty decent and I’d drink again. But I wouldn’t drink often.

Bottle 33 cl. Hazy orange with a white head. Hops, caramel, distinct strong bitterness, wormwood, citrus/lemon. Medium body, medium carbonation, strong bitter finish. Lacked hops aroma to balance the bitterness, but maybe it’s a bit old?
