4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Of IPAs, one of the most balanced. Aroma is sweet and hoppy, with enough zest. Color is orange and opaque with a large white head. Taste is bitter but sweet, hop melding with sugar sweet. Palate is just the right thickness. Great IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Swamp Head. Orange hazed orange pour with white foam. Definitely on the sweet side. Dried pineapple and apricot along with a heavy dose of caramel. Some hints of pine and citrus rind. Decent enough orange and maybe some grapefruit. There’s a fair bit of brown sugar as well. Not bad, if not on the sweet side.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Whole Foods. Sparkling medium copper pour, tight snow white head, light film of lace. Slight pineapple tropical bent to the spuce-like aroma. Solid citrus bitterness, some pineapple fruitiness, caramel sweetness. Decently thick mouthfeel. Solid effort. Can’t believe I am drinking a beer from Gainesville and enjoying it on the day of the FSU - Florida game.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
light yellowish head leaves some lacing. amber colour. aroma is bit oxidized, caramel, strawberry, hops. taste like aroma, but with a long and very wry bitter finish, almost like all the tanins from the husks have been dissolved, unpleasant, some alcoholburn. quite dense body, medium carbonation. surely this wasn’t superfresh but the very wry bitter finish is really unpleasant. bottle 75cl
