Cloudy orange bright pour out of the bottle. Very hoppy and bitter taste. Uncontrollable head - foamed up like an ice cream cone. Good floral citrus taste

On tap at Mad Mex Robinson. Delicious beer. It’s been a while since I’ve been impressed with an IPA. Aroma was decent. Pine, lemon and notes of grapefruit. Pour was a nice clear medium gold with a one finger white head. Taste was delicious. Strong resinous hops with the pine taking backseat to grapefruit rind. There’s some floral notes as well. Nice carbonation. All in all a very solid beer.

My first sample from this brewer and it was pretty good. Not the pine or citrus aroma I was expecting after reading the label. More biscuity and malty. The hops show up in the taste with a lot of bitterness well balanced by the malt. Nicely done. I look forward to another of their brews.

Orange with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus, lightly sweet, some pine. Medium body. Flavor is nice bright fruits, light pine, enough sweet malts to add some complexity but not drown the hop bitterness. really refreshing IPA and one I’d like to see in front of me more often.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours chill hazy golden with 1-finger white lacing head. Nose is Sculpin-like, a medley of tropical fruit, citrus, hops, black peppery hints. Tastes hoppy, citric, with pineapple, tangerine, peppery notes, and some metallic twinge. Lively palate with more tropical citrus as it warms. A bit malt light, but pretty good.

Golden Amber pour with a slim white head. Aroma is citrus, lemon, piney hops. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is lemon citrus, honey, orange zest, pine resin, light floral sweetness, and a hint of herbaceous bitterness. Good.

Draft. ABC beer co. Straw gold color with thin head. Aroma is strongly herbaceous and slightly sweet. Taste itself is very balanced, piney, and clean. This IPA is drier than sweet and all around very pleasant.

Draft at Buddha Beer Bar. A super IPA from a brewery I had not heard of before. Herbaceous and fresh brew, not sweet or harsh, but not too mellow either. Subtle with grass and lemon notes. Very nice.
