3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can to snifter. Pour is lightly hazy, orange to copper in color with a small white head. Aroma is strong citrus rinds with a pine of pine. Taste is strong citrus and pithy bitterness initially with a bit of floral hop character coming through in the finish. Not much malt here to speak of; definitely hop focused and heavily on the bitterness. Overall, drinkable, but I would prefer to see a little more hop complexity and variety.

Very good IPA offering by Sweetwater. Typical auburn color with a smooth hop based focused after taste! As a fan of this type of beer I really like how smooth it is!

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.
