4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draught at the Lava Lounge.
Pours golden and fairly clear with a nice tight white head & nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is very fresh & hoppy with lots of citrus and pine. It’s aromatic, fresh and inviting.
The flavor is very big & hoppy with a moderately high bitterness that is well balanced with a nice juicy hop character. It’s got melon, grapefruit, tropical fruit, citrus peel, & pine.
One of the chilliest servings of a Hop Patrol beer I’ve ever had.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Dexters, pours a hazy orange with a thin head, the aroma is of really dank hops, a lot of garlic and spice like, not my favorite type of ipa, the flavor has a dank front end as well, mouthfeel is nice, just not my kind of ipa, I like my fresh and lively, this is more dank and in your face.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[On-tap, old rating] Pours hazy orange amber with a nice white head with good lacing. A little hot, and a good dose of melon. Light grapefruit rind as well. A little thicker than Millenium Falcon. Long finish. Not only is this an old rating, but it also is not a particularly great one. I’ll have to try this one again next time I’m up at TG.
