3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy amber orange with medium off-white head. Aroma very herbal hoppy, slight floral, not a lot of citrus, but it is there, and some tart fruit. Flavor is a bit different than I was expecting, but altogether pretty drinkable and enjoyable. Maybe this bottle was a little too aged, because the hops were very dulled.

Sorry FFF, I let this one sit around too long. My fault, I’ll have to have it again and re-rate.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours orange/gold with tall white head. Aroma is distinctly floral. Some tropical citrus - pineapple and orange. Flavor is sweet citrus and sweeter malt. I wouldn’t say too sweet, but close. The hop shows up nicely; some pine/resin qualities but they don’t balance out the sweetness as well. Perhaps my bottle was a bit oxidized? Still a good beer.

shared my bottle with 2 friends. thanks a lot to evilcougar for trading this one. poured a clear amber colour with a nice white head. this was a one of a kind smell! citrus, peach, grapefruit, pines. got the feeling that is was more of a saison. such a complex hop taste. very smooth ipa! I really enjoyed the use of wet hops in this brew!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very nice golden orange with a medium head. Aroma is malty with a fantastic array of citrus and pine notes. Taste at first is very citrus with a dominant orange/grapefruit note. If you let it sit on your palate a moment you will get floral notes and a nice hop finish. Very interesting IPA that is definitely citrus forward.
