4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but should be pretty fresh. Pours slightly hazy deep gold color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, honey, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome complexity of big citrus/tropical/grassy hops with light-moderate malt balance; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, honey, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel/rind, pine, floral, grass, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity or bright citrus/tropical/grassy hops and light-moderate malt sweetness; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible IPA. All around fantastic complexity of bright citrus/tropical/grassy hops with light-moderate malt balance; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. An extremely outstanding offering.

Fruity, hoppy scent. Hoppy flavor comes on strong and smoothed quickly. Not overly bitter. I really like this one.

Bottle via trade. Light gold pour with a medium white head. Fresh west coast vibes on the nose. Grapefruit meat and a bit of salty driftwood. Herbal hop dankness. Hops very much on display. Extremely reserved malt profile. Pineapple and lemon pie flavors. A bit of funky gym locker. Mild biscuit to keep things in check. Quite drinkable. Not overly aggressive. Dry mineral finish. Light body, zippy on the palate. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance was clear gold with diminishing creamy white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are pineapple, melon, orange and lemon with slight pale, crystal malts and no alcohol. Taste are slight pale backbone, then the blast of tropical fruits of pineapple, orange maralede, honeymelon with lemon and lime middle and backbone. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with medium body, then lasting fruity and piney finish. A wonderful fruity piney finish. A like the wheat in this fruity IPA:)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Marcella's. Pours deep dark amber with lingering head that lasts half the beer. Nose is hop and standard citrus although the grain shows up too. Full bodied and a bit heavy but hop bite spruces it up. Well balanced and this is one id call back after a walk of shame for sure. Well done sirs.

Split a bottle with the gf. Poured heavy to get a frothy head. Body is light cloudy straw color. Piney hoppy aroma. Sweet hoppy tasting. Some pine flavors. Not getting much citrus. It’s there, just not as strong. Decent beer
