3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the tasting room, the beer has a very citrusy, hoppy aroma, and a nice hop presence and slight bitterness. A pretty good malt/hop balance, that trends toward the bitter side. The alcohol does not come through at all. Pretty solid for an IPA.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle, courtesy of Snoop59. Juicy fruity citrusy hops with tons of apricot. Fragrant and sweet with caramel. Just a great nose. Golden orange clear with thin white head. Medium heavy body with medium carbonation. Sweet and fruity like apricot nectar. Not cloying but well balanced. Tons of great bitterness at the finish but not harsh. Great IPA and good hop profile with right amount of maltiness. A real treat.
