If I was beer this would be me. I love love love this stuff. I can’t wait until kegs are available. I used to drive growlers home 150 miles just to have some on hand. Excellent flavor, color, and the taste is the perfect balance of citrus and bitter. Hangs on the palate for a long time and stays tasty. OVERALL I have to blow this rating to the top - I think this will be the only one I ever rate this high.

Bottle Justin V. Thanks, bro. Pours partly clear yellow to orange. With some head that fades. Nose is huge pine notes and vegetal quality. First sip is similar with some tropical and stone fruit flavors. Finish is a pleasant bitterness that lingers. Slightly disappointing.

Bottle. Deliciously complex and drinkable ipa. Refreshing brew that has the fruity, spruce, and floral notes blend to make this beer have something for everyone’s tastes

Great aroma and balance of the hops and grains. nice golden pour as well as good level of carbonation.
Not overwhelming on the hops and very drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle huge thanks to Nitze!! Bright orange pour, lovely white head. Nose and flavor are jam packed with pomelo, tangerine, bright white pine sap, pink grapefruit, and bitter lemon. Not overally bitter, but enough early boil hops to make you know you’re drinking an IPA. Clean, beautiful, but not in the same league as the Sue series from this brewery.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Clear golden color, light foam. Fragrant floral hop aroma, tempered perhaps by time in the bottle. Nice blend of a grain flavor malt base and the hops, maybe a bit of spruce character. Bitter but not overwhelming. Leaves a clean refreshing aftertaste.

This is so damn good. I feel like I’m eating a fresh honeydew melon when I drink this. Pours a dark golden. Aromas are juicy fresh melon. Flavors are fresh honeydew. So fresh and delicious. One of the best ipas I’ve ever tasted.

On tap at Toppling Goliath. Pours a bright golden orange. One finger white head that fades to a cap. Aromas of dank citrus, pine and a light malted sweetness. Taste is nice and bitter. Citrus peel, peach, pine and a light pale malt keeping the body present. Finish is medium-dry with lingering juicy bitter pine and grapefruit. Tasty stuff!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler hand-delivered by the best mother-in-law on the planet. Golden yellow body, mostly clear, whipped meringue towering white head. Ample lacing cascading down the sides of the glass. Aromas of grass, hops, dank floral notes. Earthy hops with a touch of resinous pine. Smooth body with mild bitterness. Tasty.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by footbalm. Thanks Eric! It pours a light golden color with a small off white head that disappears. The aroma has some lemon, melon, stone fruit and light floral hop spice. Not really a hop bomb in the nose. The flavor is strong with bready and lightly cidery malt, melon and stone fruit with a mild but lingering floral bitterness. A little sweetness and mild astringency in the finish. I wasn’t as impressed as I thought I would be, but still glad I got to try another beer from this brewer.
