3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Last offering from the tacklebox. One helluva pop from this bottle [A] Great aroma. Kind of skunky. Not in a stale way. Dank. Floral and citrus aromas. Caramel & Euro malts present. Almost lends a nutty/chocolate note. Hop oil. Simply put, but pretty quaffable. [A] Orange amber. [F] Body is nice. Good balance. That skunky hop comes through, with orangey citrus. But otherwise, the malt levels things out. Biscuity pale flavors under upfront caramel and crystal. [P] A medium-light feel. Justly carbonated. Hop bite about right for an IPA. Enjoyable, without becoming too bitter. [O] Wow. It is odd of me to say, I STILL think the Blue was the most enjoyable brew in the mixed 12-er. IPAs are one of my favorite styles. But become boring at times. This was deemed satisfying enough to repeat, if Sweetwater ever comes to IL. Tie for 1st place out of the 4. Good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle in Seattle, picked up by my brother in ATL. Bright, right brown-tinted gold, very full creamy head. Tart malty aroma, good bright hop and sharp. Only disappointment is the feel of the body, a bit light and cardboard-carbonated. Super clean, very tasty, very bright. I quite like it.

Clear orangeish amber with very generous head. Very fruity aroma with citrus, fruit salad, pineapple, clementine. Medium mouthfeel and not too dry. Biscuity malts more present in taste than aroma. Hops more subtle with mild bittering on finish.

Bottle at home. Leafy hop and citrus aroma. The malt is a bit biscuity and toasty. Subtlely hopped. More of an APA, but pretty nice.
