3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Last half of last beer and last drop of energy -- earthy malts, zip, pine, unsweetened gf, peach, pepper. Tastes and smells really good but each bottle seemed a bit underwhelming - which is fine but I guess I wanted more moreness. Solid beer, crazy price. 1AM reviews just donít have the same bite they used to.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light amber with a big, frothy, white head. Nose is piney hops. Taste is nicely balanced; very sharp bitter notes, but sweetness comes through nicely. Medium body, lively carbonation. Good IPA, although I'm not a huge fan.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Actually a truly good IPA with bountiful hop and pine characters. The pour is a bright amber highlighted with orange and golden hues. The nose is fresh, frutiy and resinous with big pine and grapefruit zest aromas. Mild caramel and toasted bread malts up front, lingering citric bitterness yet a good balance on the finish overall.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear copperish amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is mostly fleshy fruit hops, peaches, apricot. The flavor brings out even more of the fruity sweetness with a mild bitter and some caramel malts. Light in body and very drinkable. Lingering fruity sweetness in the finish. Tasty ipa.
