Darker IPA pour, floral citrus hosp in the nose, slight caramel. Flavor is tangy, citrus rind dominates hop character. There is some bready malts but no too much sweetness. Very bitter lower abv ipa. bonus points for being 100% organic.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, Caleb out with the hookup as usual! Dark reddish orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of dull metallic notes, caramel malts, slight hints of red fruits, but pretty dull crystal malt and some slight grass. Taste is a mix of dull red fruits, slight earth, grain, hints of spice, slight grass, finishing fairly dry, slightly bitter, more metallic notes. This did not work for me.

Bottles from multiple sources. Pours pretty rurbid orange with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is intense hops, caramel malt, black peppery notes, spicy florals. Tastes caramel malty, grainy, with a big hop flavor, but not as much as the aroma would indicate. Finishes smooth, somewhat bland, with still solid hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear dark copper amber colored brew with a thick and rocky off-white head that has some excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops, golden and caramel malts, a touch of earthy spice and autumn floral. Taste is medium bodied, some mild carbonation with flavors of biscuity caramel malt, dried leafy hops and a touch of herbs. Finish is semi-dry with a lingering dry hop aftertaste. Not an over-powering IPA but still a sessional type.
