3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours dark gold with a multifinger foamy off-white head. Lots of hop aroma - seems to be mixed citrus/pine. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is fruity/floral hop over light malt. It is just excellent. Quite tasty.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a copper color with a thin white head. The aromas are citrus and light pine. This beer stats slightly wet hoppy and ends the dame way. Nothing remarkable about this beer, it is rather dull. Cheers!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle courtesy of boomer0183. thought this would have a higher score than this! very quaffable, reminds me of a nice saison with some of the hop profile, the mouthfeel and light crispness of this brew. nice clear or hazy pour with a dense creamy head with excellent retention. very clean in the back palate, i wouldn’t mind more of this at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not sure why this beer isn’t rated higher. Very close to a Racer 5. Clean, crisp, piney, and fairly hoppy. I can’t stand the malt bomb IPA’s and this is not one of those. Overall pretty nice.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Real fresh grapefruit, floral aroma that lit up the nose. Copper body with decent head. If the flavor would have been like the aroma, this beer could have been a "5". But the flavor was a decent IPA - citrusy. Cool and crisp on the palate. Good brew. Thanks, Eric, for the opportunity to try this one!
