3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is fabulous with intense floral hops and some mild earth, but the flavor really falls flat. Malts are mild and don’t add much to the flavor profile. For an IPA that depends so heavily on a rich hop profile, there just isn’t enough there.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a clearish golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is citrus forward with some resiny notes and a light, sweet maltiness. Flavour is also fairly critusy, definitely grapefruit, with some underlying spicy, resin character and some sweet candyishness. Lingering citric bitterness in finish. Impressive.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from Brewmaster’s in Wilson. Golden hue, light murky clarity with almost fully diminishing white fizzy head. No lacing. Grapefruit, lemon, light sweet malt (as it warms) aromas. Light bitter floral taste up front with more of a citrus/grapefruit hop finish. As the beer warms the taste of grapefruit hop goes from start to finish. Very lively carbonation on the palate. A really solid IPA!!!!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Troegs never fails to impress. Their IPA (Imperial Pale Ale) delivers an Americanized hops bill that piggybacks on an English malt base. Fruity but not citrus, resiny but not piney, the hops play a lead role in the aroma. But lo, the malt is not to be outdone. Its a push-pull battle to the very end when, at the finish, the hops throw a bitter smack across the palate then bow out gracefully in a clean slick finish. Let’s not forget the clean golden appearance or sticky wads of Belgian lace that grace the drinking vessel either. I wish this one was Perpetually in my fridge.

Bottle. Orange color with a white head. Smell is really fruity, citrus notes, grass, typical IPA smell. Taste is bitter, yet easy drinking. A top notch IPA that just adds a new beer into the rotation of purchases.
