4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
One of, if not the best, IPA I have ever had. Aroma is shockingly amazing. Close in taste to something like zombie dust yet less bitter. Floral hops presence very high, initial taste of citrus with a very crisp backbone of just the right amount of bitter and carbonation make this an outstanding beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Amber body with a white, frothy head. Aroma of pine, raw, leafy hops, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A sweet tasting start gives way to raw hops, resin and pine with light citrus notes. Not a resin bomb, but fairly standard fair.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz (green) can, from Big Red Liquors in Indianapolis. Clear orange amber color. Good finger of khaki head. Medium-plus body. Smooth lighter carbonation. Light creamy fullness to the texture. Lightly dry finish. Very easy to drink. Good tropical, orange fruity hop notes. Light caramel malt. Moderate bitter, light sweet. Great, well-balanced hoppy but not too bitter IPA. Satisfying clean bigger hop profile, but very easy to drink. Great IPA, very satisfying.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The picture here is off which had me confused but this is definitely the green. The warrior with the pine definitely dominates. Great looking red color with a big off white head. Light citrus aromas. Flavor is dominated by the pine and the finish is all resiny pine. Nice toffee and caramel mat body to round it out. Solid ipa.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber-golden with a one-finger, foamy white head. Clean, pineapple and citrus nose. Texture is thinner than expected. The flavor performs like a session. Big disappointment given it’s impressive bouquet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at The Local in Westfield. Amber pour, eggshell head. Piney hop nose, not especially dynamic. Lightly sweet, pretty bitter. Medium body, oily, drying finish. Decent brew, definitely a scraper, and certainly balance isn’t the point here. Of course, drinking your IPAs out of a mason jar doesn’t really allow for proper appreciation. Regardless, good, not great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I assume this is what I had - seriously, though, how does one tell? Hazy dull amber. The aroma doesn’t show much, but the palate has a lot of piney, slightly citrusy hop. Light caramel balance.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at brewery as well as from a 4 pack bought at brewery a light golden with a thin white head.
Aroma of pine trees resin & lemon.
Flavor is very so slight sweet & the bite of pine bark. Smooth quite light.
Feels nice to the palate. Not overdone. Subtle goodness here. Pleasantly surprised at this brew. Went to a free tasting expecting less than average & found this brew to be the exception.
