3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Sugarmoms. Light orange amber with a thin head. Juicy orange pith citrus hop bitterness. Some wild grassy notes as well. Medium body, but feels thick for an IPA. Can feel the higher ABV. Bitter and dry. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Pours a bright, clear, pale gold color with a very thick, creamy, white head. Smell is dank herbal hops, candied orange peel, tangerine, tropical fruit, and a dab of caramel. Starts off with a big dose of citric and grassy hops slowly giving way to a mix of lightly toasted caramel malt, pine, and even more hop oils. The finish has lots of hop bitterness and some lasting dryness. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled 05/31/2012. Batch #120507.
A - Light amber body. Super clear with tons of rising bubbles. One finger white head with some awesome lacing and retention.
S - Super citrusy. I can smell if from a few feet away. Piney with bright citrus notes. Mostly grapefruit and some oranges and pineapple A touch of warming booze and spice on the finish.
T - Not as impressive as the nose. Toffee malts and grapefruit juice. Fairly one layered and boring. The finish is really bitter with some lingering pine and grassiness. Mouth feel is creamy with a low level of carbonation. Dry the whole way through.
O - Pretty standard IPA. Very grapefruit heavy with some nice pine and grassiness. I think when it comes to Troegs though, nothing can beat the amazingly intense and tropical nugget nectar.

Nice dry, hoppyness throughout. Pale yellow-orange color and piney/citrus aroma. No-nonsense hops. Very little malt. Quickly becoming one if my very favorites.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pour was a nice clear golden color with just under 1 finger of white head. Aroma is mostly pine with a hint of pineapple and caramel. Mouth is hoppy from start to finish with hints of grapefruit and lemon. Not much lacing. Pine isn’t my favorite characteristic in an IPA and my palette didn’t seem to disagree. We’ll see on the next five.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Pinnochios. Pours crystal clear yellow with a finger of white head, a little lacing, and tons of carbonation. Aroma is massive pine. This is about as floral as a single IPA gets. Taste is bitter. This is not your balanced IPA; this is a bitter bomb on your tongue with a very dry finish, The palate is perfect for savoring a hopbomb. This is killer.

Poured from a bottle. Sweet aroma. Light orange color. Delicious pale ale. A little hoppier than I expected but that makes Troegs, Troegs. An excellent choice.

12 oz bottle, clear golden hue with creamy white lasting head, pineapple aroma, some pine, medium body moderate carbonation, crisp lemon finish per dry-hopping, alcohol is well hidden but could creep on you, nothing overwhelming but very drinkable
