4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap several times, rating a glass from a growler filled at TH yesterday. Pours pale golden-orange with a smooth, frothy off-white head. Lacing is spotty. Aroma of tangerine, mango, honeydew melon, and soft traces of vanilla. Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, and soft. Taste is stawberries, sweet grapefruit, and some bitter orange with a bit of pine in the drying finish. Very balanced, approachable, easy-drinking IPA.

64 oz growler from the source. Clear orange yellow with a white head. Nose is grass, toffee, pine and musk. Resiny medium body with a tingle and a crisp finish. Taste is dried pineapple, citrus peel and green olive with slight basement funk. Lingering finish with ginger. One of the more dynamic hop profiles of the T. H. stuff i’ve tried.

On tap at Tired Hands. Loads of citrus and tropical hops with some pine in the background. Bit of malt in the background, but just enough to balance out the hop whallop. Great flavor and mouthfeel. Excellent.

Draft at TH. 8 oz pour. Murkey muddy orange color.... decent little head. Nose is fruity up front. Mango, peachy, flowers. Taste is hop lovers delight. Lots of fruity hops, with just the right amount of bitterness. Not overly bitter or fruity. Well balanced and easy to drink. Body is light and fluffy. Overall: Nice IPA

Growler courtesy of jcartamdg. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is big citrus, pine, tropical fruit, grass, earth, and peaches. Flavor is similar- it’s every flavor available in a hop coming at full speed. Light to medium in body and very nice; the aroma and flavor cause sipping, pondering, and discussion.

Shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul.
The beer is light golden with a small white head of broken bubbles. The aroma offers light pine, earth tones, hops, a hint of spice. The beer is light and easy drinking. Hop forward with light spice and a bit of a biscuit character. Tangy feel with a hint of grapefruit. Pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Tired Hands with PJ, Pat and Janine. Pours a bright golden orange body with nice light haze and creamy white lacing. Aroma is super fresh melon, grapefruit, citrus fruits and pine. Nearly perfect for a pale/IPA. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of citrus fruits, melon and pine. Overall, very drinkable and sessionable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. A big juicy papaya, grapefruit and prickly pear nose turns into a catty, onion bomb on the palate. The floral, fragrant nose becomes thick and a bit sticky across the tongue. The finish is garlicky and raw. Catty defines the mid-palate. I like the start, but the I find the quality of the hops in the finish to be not to my liking. The malt balance seems on the sugary side, but holds up to the coarse bitter finish. Confused.

Growler from James, lightly hazy gold color with good lace and head. Notes were lemons, wood, light vanilla, grapefruit, onion, rye bread and pine. Medium body. A little booze is present in the bitter finish, but still very sessionable.
