3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear bright orange color with a minimal head that recedes quickly. Pale malt, slightly sweet, sits in the background. Hops are prominent but mild. Lots of fruitiness going on, kiwi, apricot, ripe fruits. Finishes with a sort of lingering biscuit cereal flavor. Pretty easy on the palate and smooth going down, almost like a session IPA. Not bad.

Bottle from Harry’s Bottle Shop, Grand Forks, ND. Poured bright orange/yellow with a thin head. Not sure how long this has been on the shelves at Harry’s but the aroma was somewhat skunky. Mild citrus but the aroma reminded me more of a pilsner from Germany. The flavor was different. Moderate citrus hops. Pretty dry and a satisfying bitter finish. Good.

On tap at Rosa Mexicano in Minneapolis. Translucent gold color with half a finger white head that quickly recedes. Pine and citrus nose. Apricot and some passionfruit up front, followed by malt and bitter hops. Enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From can into glass. Pours yellow with white head. Big aroma of resiny hops, and light tropical citrus fruit. Crisp, pine flavor with a touch of biscuity malt in the background that really served to show case the hops bitterness. A solid bitter bite and a nice finish. A very good ipa

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Petite bouteille. Belle robe orange avec une mousse terriblement solide. Des morceaux littéralement collées sur mon verre. Petit nez fruité (pêche, agrumes et autres fruite acidulés) avec des effluves de poivre et une mince couche maltée. Bouche un peu timide, fruitée, mordante mais aussi légèrement sucrée. Les saveurs sont moins intéressantes. Au palais, le corps est paisible et passablement juteux. L’arrière-goût est amer, floral mais légèrement malhabile.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The color is a slightly hazy amber due to the fine-grain sediment, and there is a large off-white head sitting atop the beer. The aroma blends floral, resin, and citrus hops with diacetyl and grapefruit; the taste is initially quite bitter, but it eventually fades to include a slight level of sourness even though the beer is unbalanced and favoring the bitter flavor. The palate fuses a bitter finish, soft carbonation, medium body, and a slightly sticky texture.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can thanks to Skyview for this. Crystal clear gold color with lasting head retention. Aroma is straight out a west coast IPA. Pine, herbs, orange marmalade and floral hops.
Flavor is nice bitter pine, citrus hints of grass and balanced with a good amount of grain and sweet malts. The bitterness is mostly pine with a lingering effect. Body is medium with a crisp finish. Damn this takes me by surprise, nicely balanced with just the right amount of bitterness. Any Hop Head should be pleased. Nice brew, Thanks Bob!
