3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent dark orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The mild citrus crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a strong hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of mild caramel vinous citrus and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

On tap at fatheads in Pittsburgh. Aroma is faint, lightly citrus. Pours is on the darker side of golden. Flavor is a blast of citrusy hops. Not especially bitter, but a beautiful bouquet of hop flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Lizardville Rocky River. Pale orange pour - mostly clear. Small spotty white head. Citrus rind in the aroma and flavor. Doesn’t taste overly malty, but there is almost no hop edge at the back end of the taste - incredibly well balanced.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Slightly hazy rustic golden color with a decent steady white head.
Grassy and piney nose, with some bitter citrus, fresh bread and apricot jam.
Juicy hop flavors, hi bitterness, citrus peels, pines, some bready maltiness, faint nuttiness, and minor medicinal notes.
Med-full body, nice lacing, alcohol well hidden and long finish. OK.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral IPA. More sweet than bitter, but has a heavy oatmeal finish. Two very intriguing accents to combine, but it works.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another Double India. On the surface this one isn’t that extreme. Nose of citrus and sappy pine. Crisp looking clear orange. Citrus rind bitterness and sharp sweetness too. Palate gripping and drinkable at the same time, relatively speaking of course. Good sinus clearer, not a rube goldberg device, but certainly complex enough for most hop lovers.
