Pours deep copper with pillowy white head. Decent aroma of grassy hops. Flavor hits with some hops up front and balances quickly with sweet malt but not cloying. Stays hop centered throughout, with a nice clean hippy finish.

Herbal, spicy hop aroma and flavor. Kind of like the hop character of an English IPA--but more of it. Light caramel malt flavor; nicely balanced. Bitter aftertaste (the good kind).

On tap at Monte Carlo pub. Pours a bright orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, sweet malts, and weed dankness. Taste is similar but also has some tropical fruit notes. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a cloudy copper-amber color with a big white head that has good retention and ample lacing. The aroma is spicy and salty with a mild pine kick. The taste is bitter hops forward with pine, grapefruit, thyme, salt, pepper, sweet caramel, toffee and marshmallows. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bitter pine. Overall: Nice IPA but the malt base is a bit muddled. .
