4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Overall this is a beautifully floral beer. The aroma pleasantly delights the senses! The color is a nice amber, and it’s holds an even carbonation that accentuates the earthy notes of the hops. This is a gift of hops, wrapped in a hop box, perfect for the hop heads amongst us!
I recomend enjoying in style specific glassware. I always use my Dogfish/Sierra Nevada Speigalau IPA glass for hop forward pale ales.

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.

3.9 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.

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.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear brownish amber, small head. Concentrated swetay grapefruit aroma. Mid-dry with near full body and rounded mouthfeel. Very hoppy with concentrated flavour of sweaty graepfruit. Realy bitter finish. A rock solid IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orangey copper with a medium sized long lasting sticky white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, pine, tropical fruits, and a light malty caramel touch to give this good balance. Flavour is grapefruit, pine, resin, tropical fruits, medium bitterness, caramel maltiness and a moderately dry finish.
