3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
draft @ redlight redlight. Piney hops on the nose with musky resin. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a thin white head. Resinous hops upfront with a sticky mouthfeel, traces of grain and corn but the hops dominate, which is not a bad thing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a very cloudy light yellow. Almost looks like a hefeweizen. Small, puffy white head that has pretty good retention and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma is strong citrus (grapefruit and orange) and pine hops. A little bit of corn sweetness on the nose as well as some light grass and weed. The initial taste is a sweet grapefruit and light pine. This goes into a bit of a corn sweetness and some light fresh cut grass. The finish is clean with a decent bitterness. Medium body. A little bit on the sweet side, but certainly not syrupy. Relatively low carbonation. Mild astringency. Overall a pretty good beer. With the amount of hop flavors it drinks more like a DIPA than anything else.

An accomplishment in brewing, I suppose. Hoppy as all getout, bordering on amazing, a bit too boozy/sweet though. Interesting/cool.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Beer Revolution. It pours cloudy pale yellow with a nice white head. The aroma is very hoppy with lots of grapefruit and citrus with a touch of grassiness. The flavor is the same with some doughy pilsner malts throughout before a bready finish. I’m not a fan of this style, the doughy malts usually throw me, but this has such a huge hop presence it didn’t matter. Good one.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler courtesy of Sean, poured into my Narke tulip... The body is a very murky honey gold that has a neon tint to it, not liking it. The head is bright white, ok retention, not so on the lace... The aroma is very strong, you can almost see alcohol waifing up from the glass. Other notes of grassy flowers. Not bad at all. A hoppy citrus ipa... The taste is nice floral hops on the front, alcohol and hops in the middle, a lot of alcohol on the finish. Reminds me of a lesser dipa.

Pour was from a growler brought home from the bruery. Murky very cool shade of gold color. Nice bountiful white head. Corn and hop explosion for sure. Corn tortillas covered in citrus on the nose. Lively carbonation with a medium body. Solid punch of hop bitterness and bite with lemon goodness. Alcohol is pretty apparent and the beer finishes quite dry. Great hop forward beer.
