3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours beautifully from big can into tulip glass. Not a whole lot going on in the nose. The flavor more than makes make up for it. Quality hoppy grapefruit and pine bitterness with a syrupy sweetness. Dense and chewy on the palate. The spicyness of the hops become more intense as I drink it more.

2.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprisingly has no aroma. However this is very full in body, hoppy, and smooth. Really fills the mouth and is pleasing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Zipp’s Liquors. Piercing, slightly sulfury, hop nose. Medium straw color, with big fluffy white head. Massive caramel malt and hop combo but not unbalanced overall. Medium-heavy body. Big malt, but don’t really sense the 110 IBU at all

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Deep orange color, cloudy, with lace. Nose of oranges and peaches, esters, crackers. Hoppy crackery flavor, minerals, oranges, peaches. Full and somewhat heavy. Sweet. Nice but not great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from tallboy can into a nonic pint glass. It poured a nice clear reddish amber colour with deep sudsy white foam, lasting with a little lace. Intensely hoppy: grapefruit, black currant, pinecones, very very resiny and dank. A nice firm caramelly grainbill underneath, making it surprisingly well-balanced, all things considered. It’s bitter, but no way in the world this is 110 IBU. That’s obviously a theoretical figure, based on impossible utilization rates. I’m glad, though, I prefer an IPA with lots of hop flavour and aroma, without the mouth puckering bitterness. Light-body, strong carbonation, lingering juicyfruit aftertaste. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden and slightly hazy in the glass. The beer starts nicely bitter, very floral with a malty body. The mainpart is malty, floral hoppy, nice bittered. The aftertaste in long, malty and floral, but the maltiness is a bit too intense for me and covers some nice floralness of the hops --> 10/12/12/12

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Just a great IPA well balanced and a gret pour. Hints of citrus just the perfect blend of hops. heavy on the palate but not on aftertaste. I can see why this is getting such a good rating.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big can in a tulip. Pours hazy copper with an off-white head. Aroma of floral, lightly fruity, and lightly citrusy hops plus caramel and pale malts and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer, but not the best of its style.
