3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a medium amber with a thin fizzy head. Good lacing on the glass. The aroma is of piney hops with a hint of sweetness. The flavor is all hops, with a hint of malts. A very bitter finish that lingers on. Medium mouthfeel makes this very easy to drink.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of pine cone, spruce, and thick citrus. Pours a nice red amber with a puffy white head. Taste of thick hops bursting in your mouth- lemon/lime zest, pine resin, and freshness. Top notch ipa.

One of the great beers of summer.
This is the beer that started my love of the Troeggs brewing company. I have also had it in a growler and it's exceptional.

Pours slightly hazy and amber in color with medium off white head. Aroma is pine and grapefruit. Taste follows suit with grapefruit and citrus hops forward. Malt has a nice body and balances hops nicely. Excellent mouthfeel, but not too syrupy.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ar: Orange pith, pineapple, pine, some toasty caramel.
Ap: Clear orange-amber - large off-white head with good retention, and a thick trail of clingy lacing.
T: Medium-sweet caramel mixes with orange and pine up front - clean yeast profile, with lots of resinous hops - high bitterness, very smooth - some toasted caramel, lemon, and pine on the finish - solid malt backbone, but does not detract from the hops, but, rather, complements them very well.
P: Medium body with high carbonation - finish is medium-dry.
O: Great showcase of hops, with a very solid and delicious malty backbone - a really great IPA.

bottled 2/8/13. clear amber with a medium, cream colored head. aroma of slight abv, cheese, tea. base, biscuity, crystal malts flavor with tea, leaves. biting bitterness. finish has hints of berries and other high points of its heyday, unfortunately, i think its past its prime or oxidized. i’ll still drink it though..don’t you worry.
