1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Another of a million bitter IPA. From a bottle has a sweet perfumy fresh cut pine aroma. First taste? What else but big bityter medicine. Look is pale hazy brew with a rocky head that does not fade. Yezzz, long bitter finish too. You want IPA? You got it. As session comes to an end, this beer approaches double imperial ipa status.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can - floral hops aroma. Hints of caramel. A little bit of hop-water syndrome, but there is just enough malt backbone to avoid it. Not a great IPA, but I’d buy a six-pack of it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours medium deep orange with a wispy off white head. Nose is sticky caramel malts with mild floral and citrus hops with some fruity esters. Flavor is sticky sweet caramel and bready Malta with some floralan light citrus hops. Again fruity esters. Sweet finish for the style. This one had mostly a muddled malt and hop mess. caramels and odd hop flavors just don’t do it for me. may not be all that fresh-who knows, no can date.

Cloudy orange, white head, and decent lacing. Mild grass, floral, sweet malt caramel, and grain aroma. Flavor like aroma, mild alcohol notes, and medium bodied. Syrupy, sharp bitterness, not well balanced.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours a clear effervescent amber with a soapy head that laces the glass in a thick sleeve. Fairly aromatic, very caramely with hints of citrus and spice. Very low bitterness for an IPA with just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Light, relatively easy drinker with a lingering slightly toasty bitterness. Not much to see here.
