3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body is slightly hazy with an amber hue, the creamy head is light tan and has great retention.
Aroma: The aroma is caramel and bright orange, perhaps peach too.
Taste: Very nicely balanced with only a slight hint of alcohol on the finish. Big malty body is balanced by orange and peach hop flavor and a light bitterness.
Palate: Medium body bordering on thick with soft carbonation.
Overall: This is a really good IIPA that I’ve been passing up for a while. I won’t any more.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear light amber orange color with a moderate off-white head. The aroma is a bit off-putting, almost soapy/musty, with a slight hint of citrusy hops. Flavor more than makes up for it though. Well balanced citrusy hop bitterness with a light malt and fruity sweetness. Light bitterness and heavy fruity sweetness linger in finish. Medium creamy body. I like drinking this, but if it weren’t for the aroma, I would have rated this beer much higher.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy golden amber with an off-white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of caramel, citrus, grass, and tropical fruit. It tastes like it’s full of raisins and toffee; very malt forward and mildly bitter. Medium-full bodied and smooth. The alcohol is well integrated. Good, just not entirely my style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
translucent gold with a foamy beige head.full body, but not too creamy or sticky. medium carbonation.
aroma: metallic stoney minerality, grassy hop bitterness, pale and caramel or aromatic malt, ans a slight citrus note.
taste: grassy hop bitterness, malt sweetness, bright citrus hops, and metallic stoney minerality.
i would prefer a softer cleaner water profile, to let more of the malt and late-hop character come through.
