3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a clear, golden body and a dense, big, off-white head that lasts and leaves lacings. The aroma could have more punch I think, pine cones, peach hints and a grassy and lightly malty touch. Bitter flavor with a hint of fluorine tooth paste. Pine cones, peaches and some freshly mown grass, as well as a little sweetness, just enough to let the bitterness play the lead role. Full to medium body, with a soft and maybe a little low carbonation level. Long finish with a tad to little bitterness. Overall, most definitely a nice brew, but it could use a bit more punch all the way. Very easy drinkable though. 130822

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light orange pour with a white head. Light herbal notes followed by tons of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, and tangerine. Floral notes in the background, some sweet bread, and a hint of caramel. Nice bitterness on the palate to balance the little bit of caramel sweetness. Plenty of fruity hop character. Great citrus notes and a light tropical quality. Very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of piney hops, not a whole lot else – big pine and a thin malt backing. Flavour is identical, with monolithic piney hop notes, some juiciness, and a bready caramel malt backing. Nice pine-dominated IPA, but nothing overly special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by my uncle Ino. Hazy medium to dark orange color, medium sized off-white head that diminishes quite quickly. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, strong pine and piney hops. Taste moderate to heavy malts, piney hops and bitter hops again. A little old (best before date Jan 2015) so maybe less fruity but pretty nice nonetheless.
