4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, dank hops, tropical fruits, and pine. It pours a golden-orange with a two finger white head that has good retention. There’s some good webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with citrus and fruit. The finish has moderate-heavy pine, a tad bit ligher grapefruit, and just a touch of dank hops. It’s medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a slightly soft mouthfeel. Overall, really tasty and easy drinking for 6.8%...pretty much the type of IPA I’ve been craving.

Thanks to crizay for the share. Pours clear orange gold with a white head. Nose is slight butterscotch, caramel, grapefruit hops, and bitterness. Flavor is similar with bitterness all over. Enjoyable medium-bodied IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from FFL payouts - thanks, Pud! Pretty damn yummy IPA from these folks, with a hefty cloudy orange pour and a thick head. Nose is fragrant, buoyant floral hops with just a bit of that Citra bite. Lively mouthfeel, a bit of prickle and pepper on the palate. Tropical fruit and pungent hops everywhere in the flavor, never too sweet and backed up by a tasty, spicy finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Totally clear golden yellow color, minimal white head. Some spots and strings of lace. Good, strong fruity hop aroma. Medium bitterness through the finish. Light but sharp carbonation. Medium texture - neither too dry nor oily. An assertive, fresh-tasting IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured pale, golden with a white head. I feel like the obtained the hop bitterness and a decent malt profile here, but not a strong hop citrus, piney, and pepper spice that you’d hope for in a west coast IPA. It contained those characters but not enough to overcome the bitterness. Some earthy hops, and residual bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours clear golden with a medium sized lasting off white head. The aroma has cracker like malts, some sweetness, tropical fruits, lemony citrus with some additional pungent hops. The flavor has bready malts with a splash of caramel, tropical fruits, lemon citrus, mild peppery spice with a mild catty note. Pretty decent overall and something we get locally from time to time.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
From a 12 oz bottle. Has a down to earth thick hop aroma that hangs like fog on a coolmorning. Cloudy with a slight haze almost like a hefe or witbeir in appearance. . Creamy head. Big strong nasty rude over the top flavor of pine tar and spuce oil makes me shake. Wewwwwww. They can leave this stuff over aqt the west coast IMHO. Soap in mouth nellie smashes my palate from top to bottom and down the gully. Terribly on style, probably should be a double ipa, resinous flow of nagging knashing stuff going on here pal. Interesting in that it does not trigger a gag reflex but cruelly persudes my brain to keep trying this viscous brew. Scary at times. I have no idea why this is not a 100 on this site. Lager lover? Forgettaboittit.
