3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a burnt orange, minimal head. Smells like damn orange juice and pine cones. Taste is nice bitter / malt balance but tastes a bit too boozy for a 6.8% beer. Lots of orange peel, a bit of pulp and a finish of pine resin. Itís actually really nice and a bomber isnít too much.

Bottle shared with Pedro. Pours a clean gold with good off-white head and some ringed lacing. Nose of pine, some citrus, pineapple and sweet caramel malt. Decent body. A little too sweet for my taste up front. A lot of caramel and toffee flavor along with some good hop flavors. Decent bitterness on the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lemon zest nose. Clear golden, thin head. Lemon zest flavor, which turns to celery and grass. Decent, but seems a little vegetal and could use a greater malt presence.

Tap at Barcade, this one was a pleasant surprise after trying too kind and hating it. Notes were a little cheesy, lots of pine, and funky hops. Nice head and good lacing. A little grapey in the finish. Pretty solid ipa.
