3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler: Thanks, Corey! Pretty cloudy, burnt orange color with a large, foamy, chunky eggshell head that lasts for days & leaves tremendously sticky lacing all the way down. Aroma of floral notes, juicy grapefruit, citrus peel, general pungent fruitiness, light pineapple/tropical notes & a nice kiss of honey covered cracker malts. Taste is crisp with a sustaining, yet smooth bitterness. Hop leaves covered in tame white pepper, flower pedals, grapefruit flesh, mild pine, more pineapple & tropical fruit notes, a hint of bready malt, & mild hoppy bitter tingle that lingers in the aftertaste. Drinkable & certainly crushable with almost no sign of the 7.2% ABV. Very nice IPA.

Bottle: Poured a deep golden color ale with a nice large foamy had with good retention. Aroma of citrusy hops with light tropical fruits. Taste is also dominated by a big rush of citrusy hops and some tropical fruits notes with some residual sugar notes. Body is full with great carbonation. Well enjoyable IPA with limited bitterness and loads of nice huge floral notes. It is also nice to get a chance to taste this hops on its own.

A very solid IPA. Maltier than the 1492, but equally impressive aroma. Tropical, light citrus, with a slightly thicker mouthfeel. Picked up at the Dell with Andy in 2015.

12 oz bottle generously given to me by csbosox. 30 Sep 15 stamped on bottle neck. The pour is a clear golden orange with a nice one inch off white head. The aroma is full fresh clean citrus fruit hop along with some resin and a bit of tropical pineapple sweetness. The taste is the bright citrus tropical fruit hops along with nice cereal grain malt and the resin element towards the back. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and the dry bitter resin citrus malt finish. Nice one, thanks for sharing Chris.
