3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured up on tap at the Tamarack brewpub with clear copper body and gold edges as well as a light tan head that leaves behind some sheet lacing. The aroma has plenty of pleasing yet somewhat modest pine hoppiness with faint snippets of sweet malts well off in the background. The taste has rich chewy hoppiness coming from a nice level of pine hops but also some floral hops and sort of a resiny grassy note. This is a pretty darn good IPA that brings up and lingers with near resiny bitterness into the after taste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at brewpub. Pours golden orange. The aroma is bursting with hop goodness. Grapefruit, lemon, pine, and caramel on the palate. Reminds me of Tree Hophead. And in no way is that a bad thing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery, liked the one off the sampler tray so much I bought a pint. Pours clear orange, thin white head, okay/spotty lacing. Nose is big hops, balanced between sweet (mandarin?) orange, and spruce/pine notes. Palate is similar, a very similar beer to Tree Brewing’s estimable Hophead IPA. Excellent.
