4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden amber with a medium off white head slowly dissipating to a razor thin lasting through out with moderate lacing. Aroma of floral citrus hops, grapefruit, caramel malt, yeast and fruity notes. Taste same as aroma with some flavorful tangy grapefruit notes. A medium body on the palate, good carbonation with a smooth sweet bitter tangy mouth feel. Finished with sweet caramel malt, yeast fruity balanced by some floral citrus hops with a slightly tangy grapefruit ending. Overall a very good, flavorful and solid IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample on Troegs Brewey tour. Actually sampled this twice, once straight from the tank and once bottled. I’ll review the bottled. Clear golden amber color with off-white head. Aroma of sharp pine and floral hops and light caramel malt. Taste is dry, hop bitterness nicely balanced with malt sweetness. Surprisingly light body, lingering finish. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours quite clear-golden in color with a nice sudsy, pure-white head. Sharp pine-citrus hop aroma. A drier taste, leaves you thirsting for more; light bodied but hop heavy with some light earthy tones.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 082112, batch 120730. Nose is sweet and hugely hoppy, grapefruit and pine, floral and citrus, big tropical fruit and a touch of toasted bread. Deep golden pour with a short off-white head. Taste is bone dry at first and very bitter, lightly scratchy with resin, there’s light perceived sweetness from the hops after a while. Light-medium body with some caramel malt, avg base with some decent dry-hopping.

Great thick malt and caramel taste. Wonderful hop complexion, good alcohol flavor. Balance is very good. Really a great IIPA or whatever this is considered.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tried this at pizza plant, not at home, so I couldn’t put my finger on everything I was tasting/smelling.
Darker amber pour with a nice white lacing head. Can’t pick up any dominating aromas in here.
Pretty thin body, but a smooth drinking ipa. Sweet and citrusy hops of front with a bitter hop finish.
not my ideal cold weather beer, but it’s a nice fresh tasting ipa. Would drink it again if it was around.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear and tan/yellow with a good lasting white head and good lacing.
Nice and piney with citrus and floral notes. Malts also notable in the nose.
Taste wise it’s got bready and caramel malt notes, piney grapefruit and oranges, floral and a little bit of residual sweetness.
Body is very nice, good carbonation levels and nice hoppy finish.
A nice balanced brew. Nothing spectacular but highly drinkable.

Bottle shared by djmiller92. Thanks Dave.
The beer is yellow, perhaps slightly orange, with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the tulip glass. The aroma is dominated by citrus and hops. Very nice. The flavor follows suit, with notes of tropical fruit, as well as a citrus and floral presence. Subtle notes of pine are present as well. Alcohol presence is well disguised. Malt is secondary to hops, as it should be. A really tasty IPA from an east coast brewery.
