3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance- Hazy burnt orange. Small dark white head. Lot of lacing.
Smell- Earthy, sweet hop aroma. Little bitterness.
Taste- Malty and sweet. Earthy hop flavor. The bitterness builds on itself with every sip. It really shows up halfway through the glass.
Mouthfeel- Thicker than I typically like but not offensive.
Overall- Good IPA. Nothing spectacular, but I would contemplate buying another.

Can served in a tulip. Pours dark orange-amber with a medium-sized head. Good retention and excellent lace. Aroma is pine, caramel, bread, and orange citrus. The palate is similar showing a hearty malt bill and earth and pine. Almost a wet hop presence. Medium body, oily texture, and a bitter, oily finish.

From a can. Pours a dark copper, and aggressively carbonated -- huge head on this one. Mild nose, with a good balance -- sweet grains under the predominant mandarin and pine notes. Mandarin, a bit of mango, and some floral notes in the flavor, which is very hop-heavy. Just a little sticky, and the only thing that’s really knocking it in my book is a slightly soapy note up front. Overall a very tasty effort from a new local place.

After the lucille I just had this falls a little short on hop profile. Still a pretty drinkable and sessionable ipa. Citrusy orange hop aroma and an herbal finish with a nice subtle sweetness working throughout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml can pours amber in color with a huge frothy white head which left some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by citrus hops. Taste seems to be more floral hops and some citrus with a malty sweetness in the finish. Medium body and carbonation leave a pleasing mouthfeel. This is an easy to drink, but surprisingly flavorful IPA.

Can. Dark orange with lots of floaties at the end of the pour, covered by a thick off-white mattress. Aroma is citrus and pine. Sweet marmalade flavours, pithy citrus bitterness in the finish. A little sweet, but nice.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazed coppery orange, white head. Definitely smells like my kind of IPA right off the bat. Lots of floral aromatics and citrus. A little caramel and toasty grain on the body, not too malty and pretty dry overall. Light bodied, lots more of that floral and citrus, grapefruit rind, moderately bitter pine finish. Nice stuff, lots of hop character with just the right level of malt backing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Dark orange with gold highlights and a solid inch of pillowy off-white head. The aroma is a typical IPA blend of floral hops, pine and citrus. The taste starts with a strong dose of bitter, herbal hops and earthy malt characteristics along with some grapefruit and orange citrus toward the end. Carbonation is strong and the finish is bitter and tangy. Overall, could use a little more of a caramel malt presence to balance out the spicy citrus and bitter hops notes.
