on tap at redlight. This beer pours a nice piss yellow with a small white head. the nose really surprises you with hoppyness, pine, and sweet sugar. the taste is even better with grain, corn, and alot of hoppyness. medium mouthfeel, very drinkable. this beer is pretty damn good.

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.

On draft at The Bruery. This was one of the hoppiest beers I think I’ve had from The Bruery. Had some grain taste to it and tons of hop onslaught. Easy to drink for 9.5%. Really enjoyed this one. Drank almost a whole growler later and felt like cornballing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Not really a malt liquor but a dammed good IPA. Citrusy and bright with the ABV masked tremendously. Some minor malt lingers in the background.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
An accomplishment in brewing, I suppose. Hoppy as all getout, bordering on amazing, a bit too boozy/sweet though. Interesting/cool.

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.

Tap at Redlight. Pours a light gold with a thick white head. Very fresh hop, resiny and citrusy in the aroma. Smooth crisp clean malt, lots of big juicy citrus hops, yet immensely drinkable. Very good brew.

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.
