Typical ipa nose and color. Citrus tastes with a nice hop bite. Small malt backbone. Not great but horrible by any stretch.

Tap @ RVC. Dark caramel with creamy head and nice lacing. Smells dank and peppery and evergreeny, and pithy with a faint hint of peach. Flavor not as heavy as aroma- bitter, but not too bitter. Decent hang time.

Traded from UDBeernut. Pours a hazy orangish gold, with white head. Nice hop aroma. Taste is hoppy with notes of citrus. A very nice, drinkable IPA. Thumbs up.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange copper. Aromas of pine, citrus, hoppy resin. Taste is soapy, some quick citrusy and tropical fruit hops. Taste a little rye and some green tea, lemony as well. Finishes a little weak. Not bad for a crisp summer IPA. Not solid enough for great points.

Nice aroma from the bottle, not to floral. Nice slightly cloud yellow. Balance bitterness and finish.

Can. Aroma is floral and somewhat citrusy. Taste is nice and citrusy with some earthy tones as well. Plenty of malt round it out but it’s clean the hops are on showcase here. Finish is a nice amount of bitterness. Appearance is lots of floaties... Overall, really nice; i’d go to this one again.

Tap. Pretty standard IPA. Mild citrus and pine hops. Ńothing really stands out but if this was the best offering I wouldnt be disappointed.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/5/2015. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Outstanding aromas with awesome complexity of bright citrus/pine hops and light-moderate malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/pine hops and light-moderate malt flavors; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome IPA. All around great complexity and balance of bright citrus/pine hops and light-moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber with a long-lasting 1" white head, billowy streaks of lace. Taste is solid malt that abruptly gives way to a pine hop slam on the swallow. The rest of the way through a medium finish, the hops slowly recede, allowing the malt to re-emerge. A remarkable brew. Recommended.

16 oz can from Bert’s at the beach. Super solid IPA. Pours really nice caramel/orange color with a generous white head. Nice lacing. Unfiltered nature somewhat off-putting with particles present in glass. Typical IPA notes- citrus, pine and dankness prominent. Floral notes. Columbus hops quite prevalent. Bitter in the finish. Slick mouthfeel. Solid flavor profile, just looking for something more at this point in my IPA’s.
