3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
an almost non existent off white head. Aroma is pretty weak with some earthy and sweet hop notes. Flavor is the opposite of aroma. Starts out very strong and slams the tongue with hops and solid hop bitterness. Some sweet caramel notes come through in the finish and linger. Medium body and medium carbonation. I was worried with the weak aroma, but was pleasantly surprised by the strong hop presence.

Clear orange apperance with a quickly disappearing frothy head. doesn’t have the most appealing aroma. I’m expecting a less then appealing taste but I’m pleasantly suprised. I think if they used a different hop profile during conditioning they would have an excellent IPA.

Citrus and resin nose. Taste follows suit. Nice balance that is more towards the hops side. Solid

Pours golden with frothy voluminous head. Aroma is strong citrus and floral. Aroma is a very stereotypical but good sweet bitter resin of delicious hops. Doesn’t finish super well though but still a decent IPA

Bottle. Pours a clear deep orange/amber in color. Thin white head leaves some nice lacing. Strong floral hop aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt and bitter grassy hops. Not alot of citrus in this one. Medium bodied and fully carbonated with a lasting resin bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle pours an almost clear red/orage with moderate white head and good lacing. Aroma is strong with both hops and malts: I detect grapefruit, caramel, bread, and a bit of pine. Taste is initially sweet until the huge bitter finsih kikcks in. Body is mediu, with average carbonation. Easily drinkable with a bitter finish you won’t forget. An above average IPA

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of pronounced grapefruit hops and slightly toasted bread. Appearance is deep copper with sticky white head, leaving lacing all over the glass. Flavor has lots of grapefruit up front with a nicely present toasted malt backbone; the finish is long and bitter, but not bracingly so. Palate is medium, sticky and average. A really well done example of the style, but without too much flash.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear red-orange with medium off-white meringue-looking head. Novel dashes of smoke and ground pepper in the nose. Taste is quite bitter and grassy, but under it is a drink not unlike root beer (very apparent in the finish), and with a trace of something herbal and spicy, like dill. An odd one, but not gimmicky, and worth keeping in mind.

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice dark amber with bubbly white head that stays throughout. A highly drinkable IPA, plenty if flavor to keep your interest.
