4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: very ver nice...bright orange hue...with a slight bit of cloudyness and a great head to go with it...nice lacing remnants throughout...
Smell: great citrus....floral and undertones of peppery phenols....it was like the the good side of Pandoras box ( hell there wasn’t one but you got the pic) was released from the depths of the mighty growler.... quite refreshing
Taste: very nice....not quite as up to par as the smell...great depth....balance....a bit more bitterness than I had expected...similar to the Sly Fox IPA I enjoyed tonight...more of a grassy honeysuckle feel on the ol’ palate....very pleasing
Notes: great stuff....this would be something to cherish if you are in the area ..

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler. Amber pour with a big off white head. Herbal/floral hop aromas. Herbal almost medicinal hop notes dominate. It has that eucalyptus/woody characteristic that for me is off putting. A bit unbalanced with an underwhelming malt backbone. Average mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Brewery/Brewpub -- My second favorite of the flight. Very solid offering, but nothing spectacular. Balanced between early bittering hops and later aroma/flavor hops.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Town Hall: Bright, nearly clear copper with a foamy gray & beige tinted head that sits thinly on top of the vibrant brew. Aroma has heavy floral notes, grapefruit rind, citrus, herbal white pepper, hints of perfume, a touch of toasty caramel malt, baked biscuits, faint perfume, & even a spike of dank pot in the back-end. Smooth as hell on the palate... Herbal with big notes flowers & mild grassiness. White pepper coated, semi-candied grapefruit peel, faintly toasted cracker malts with only a slight hint of caramel. Moderately earth, more citric towards the finish with some of the rind-like bitterness that entwines & lingers with the leafy, floral hops. This one’s a beauty, very well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one has been on the list for a long time so thanks to the first sunday tasting for hooking it up. The hop aroma seems a little faint but the flavor is still there. Might have something to do with the growler travelling? Spicey peppery flavors. Little bit of a citrus bite. Thougth this was actually a rye ipa with as spicey as it was.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Part of a flight at the taproom. Pretty excited to finally try this one. Pours a clear reddish orange with a white head. An absolute citrus bomb. Orange, grapefruit, mango. Bittersweet finish. This beer is as good as advertised.
