4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle shared by koleminer20. Aroma is wonderfully sweet, tropical fruit, piny at the end. Appearance resembles and IPA, a nice dark golden with an off-white head. Taste is tropical fruit, pine, very hoppy for a regular pale, just a touch light at the back. Mouthfeel is perfect, not too crisp to bite but not too light of carbonation. Overall, I’ve waited a long time for this, and my god was it worth the wait.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of my favorite beers, this thing consistently delivers. Great mouth feel with lots of tropical hops going on. Even after a month since it was bottled it is insanely good. Aroma is filled with oranges, grapefruit, lime, and mango. It also has a nice dry finish that makes you want that next sip even more.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Hopleaf. Pours a clear amber colour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is a little grassy with lots of citrus fruits, grapefruit in particular. Taste is moderately sweet throughout, but the sweetness is quickly overtaken by an intensifying bitterness which is quite nice. Medium body, smooth and creamy on the palate, and well carbonated. Overall a really awesome beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Review is of a 20 day old bottle
Pours a clear, bright orange body. Head is 3/4 of an inch and pearly white. Lacing was good and head retention was outstanding.
Smell is of floral hops, rye malt, and spice like cardamon or coriander. Fresh cut grass comes through as the beer warms. Not much alcohol is detected.
Taste is of earthy and floral hops. Getting some lemongrass, pine, rye, and maybe ginger or something a tad spicy. Malt is pretty light and alcohol is barely detected.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied for an IPA, well carbonated. Nice head added to the body.
Overall good beer but I was expecting more because of the hype. I gravitate more towards the fruit forward pale ales, maybe thats why I didn’t rate it higher. Solid beer though
