3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pine and hints of yeast in the aroma. The appearance is gold-orange with a billowing head and some cloudy turbidity. The flavor is of grapefruit with an edge to it that is earthy. Sort of a mix of the hoppiness of a AIPA and the maltiness of an EIPA. Pretty good, doesn’t fall into the traps that many EIPA-leaning IPAs do.

Tap at Blue Monk. Deep hazy golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is lovely with a lot of orange peel and resinous hops. Lots of zesty/spicy hoppiness and a fairly assertive dank bitterness. Really hoppy and fresh. Tasty stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Slight hazy golden color, big rocky off-white head. Aroma is a very nice balance of hops, spicy, slight resiny, citrus. Quite bitter taste, hint of biscuity malt. Finishes fairly dry. Not too overpowering, but crisp and fairly dry bitterness with a nicely balanced aroma. I’m not surprised of the rating it has, great IPA.
