3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. A light copper colored beer with a lasting small white head. Although the hops are in the forefront of the aroma, I was hoping they would be a bit stronger - Mild citrus and pine with some sweet pale malt and biscuit in the nose. The taste seems a bit subdued for a beer named as such; citrus and floral hops are more than apparent, but are balanced by dry biscuity malt as well as some caramel and creamy dextrins. Mild to moderate hop bitterness in the finish.

Well as the label obviously implies, this hop-heavy IPA goes for overkill, and apparently is not interested in balancing out that flavor. That being said there is still noticeable malty background to the strong Pacific hop flavors. Also it isn't so much bitter as it is just a more intense hop profile. Almost could pass as a double IPA. Beyond taste, appearance and aroma are standard for the style. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and surprisingly smooth and drinkable. Strong resin finish. Good but I wouldn't go out of my way to try it again. On a food pairing note, seems like it would pair well with fish and chips or other "pub food" entrees.

12 oz bottle into tulip-esque glass. Thanks, Brandon. Lovely barely-hazy copper-orange pour; creamy head; nice lacing. Cereal grains, citrus, light pine, light caramel, floral, light grassy. Quite bitter but the balance is really there. Medium-full body, lightly sticky. Excellent IPA.

Weak aroma of hops a trace of citrus. Good looking amber colored beer with a short lasting well head. Bitter indistinctive taste. Watery feel with a bitter finish

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz botle, hazy orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, oxidized hops, hints of dark sugar, touch of white fruit, biscuit, bread, hints of grain, some lemon. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, white fruit, hitns of biscuit, bread, some spice, orange, grapefruit, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Hope to try this fresh some day.

Had at Taps in Atlanta, Ga.
Pine and citrus. A little silky before finishing dry. Not much malt and a bit thin. Easy to drink and bitter.
