On draught at Hops & Pie. Clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and toasted malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of piney hops, citrus and roast malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
10 ounce pour at Hops and Pie. Darker copper with just a little haze. A beige head. A citrus aroma. First sip is a bitter citrus hit but that fades too quickly. Tropical fruit follows with some pine behind that. This is better if you put it down and come back to it. Then that first hit repeats itself over and over.

Draft - Resin and caramel. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Resin, light bitterness and caramel. Not much interesting going on, but a very easy drinking IPA.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Hops and Pie. Really not as hoppy as the description states. Clear amber color with a thin lacing head. Aroma is leafy and herbal with a gentle hop bite. Taste is smooth, balanced, and sweet with a strong toffee malt backbone throughout. Leafy and lemony hop tones shine through in the middle, with some floral complexities behind it. Smooth and nuanced, with a bigger dose of toffee than I’m used to in IPA’s and I love it!
