Aroma is huge tropical fruit and citrus, what you would expect from a very nice IPA. Appearance is copper orange with medium off white head that retains well. Crystal clear. Taste is citrus tropical fruit aroma hopping forward. Bit of caramel and fairly prominent bittering hop. Palate is medium. Fairly crisp and hides its alcohol very well. Overall a very nice IPA. Nothing too unique but done very well. Everything is smooth and pleasant.

Draft. Aroma of burnt tangerine. Soapy lace. Flavors are of bitter citrus, and not much else. Pretty standard IPA.

Bomber from Costco into a shaker. Light amber with a creamy head. Aroma is quite hoppy with floral and citrusy notes dominating. Flavor has a light bready malt base followed by a large dose of hops with citrus and pine notes. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Solid IPA!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Inspired by Pliny, according to the brewer. From tap, a slightly hazy gold with a respectable white head and good lacing. Strong grapefruit notes, balanced with pine on the back end. Flavor starts with grapefruit as well, before bittering at the end. Good overall, but not spectacular.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent IPA, nothing too special, but well balanced. Pours an ugly clear yellow with a thin white head. Smells of tropical fruit, mango, citrus, and pine. Taste is not too hoppy, with lots of citrus and pine, and mango in the finish. Paired with grilled nectarine and burrata crostini, brings out more hoppiness as well as a citrus sweetness. Had in the bottle.

On tap @ Track 7. Clear golden colored beer with a white head. There’s a bunch of citrus find to the nose. Pretty heavy pine character as well. Lots of orange, some grapefruit, and grassy hops. The flavor is a bit more malt forward than I’d care for. A lot of toast. Good orange zest and peel, though. Lots of piney bitterness on the back end. Alright IPA.

Nice citrusy IPA, murky yellow pour. Lots of fine lacing. Grapefruit aroma, more citrus follows in taste. Very drinkable, very quenching.
