4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is dank, on the piny and earthy side, some citrus. Appearance is golden, opaque, white head, great lace. Taste is dank, quite tart, some pine, floral and citrus. Mouthfeel is nice, good carbonation without being too crisp, flavor hangs. Overall, it smells better than it tastes but it’s still very good.

Pour out of bottle, hazy golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, dough into a bit of nice tropical fruit, some resin, nice orange and grapefruit notes as well, slight spice. Taste was a mix of spice, resinous, orange, grapefruit into some mango, pineapple, slight grass into some pine, finishing slightly bitter, dry.

Bomber at home. Pours a hazy light orange, frothy head that fades to lace. Aroma is citrus, orange, tropical fruit, floral. Fantastic hoppy aroma. Taste is citrus, orange, faint cracker, lightly sweet, medium bitterness. Clean. Light medium body, medium carbonation, lingering bitterness. Very nice IPA. Loads of citrus on the nose and a very clean bitter finish. Mmmm.

22 oz bomber shared with ebone1988. The pour is a nice bright orangey gold with a big pillowy white head that falls off slowly, leaving incredibly clingy soapy lace. The aroma is really good. Subtle. There is a beautiful citrus juice blast up front and follows up with a big dank hop presence. Lightly syrupy on the back end. The flavor is really dank up front. It's a lot more green than I was expecting. Really leafy green. The Malta come in and take over about half way through before succumbing to the hops and citrus once more and it finishes hoppy and bitter, rather than dry. The mouth feel is creamy and lightly carbonated with a quick fading lingeringly hoppy aftertaste. It smells better than it was. Still great

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Wrye and Fedex for actually delivering the beer to me on the second attempt. Pours a hazy golden orange with moderate white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is almost a little punky with some paper, slightly fade hops. Nothing I would ever pick up as tropical. Taste is more of a malty non-fruit forward IPA. Just not doing it for me and I love Nelson hopped beer. This just doesn’t seem to be one to me.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle into tulip. Cloudy orangish yellow with kind of soapy white head. Smell has plenty of citrus and sweet tropical fruit on the nose. Taste has some citrus and pineapple, along with some grassy/ earthy hoppiness, with a solid malt backbone. Feel is medium, and smooth. Nelson Sauvin lends some pretty unique qualities to this brew, which I really enjoy. Another great beer, in typical TG fashion.
