This IPA poured a golden colour with minimal head. Scents include grass and citrus hops. First swig was powerful in the hop dept. light caramel and hay also there. Finish is quite bitter with hop flavour lingering.

Not much of an aroma on this but it is dense and orange in color. Very clean start and finish.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Head was almost non existant. Had a decent aroma remeniscent if a lot of west coast, citrus styles. Tasted delicious, went down easy. Grassy and piney with a solud amount of hops throughout. Would have ranked higher with a better appearance, that’s all it lacked.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from ABC. Pours a dark murky orange with a very thin head that's gone almost instantly; surprisingly good lacing, though. Aromas of flowers, grass, pine, and maybe some orange as well. Very sweet on the tongue and on the way down. Light body, considering the abv, and even a somewhat watery finish. Very drinkable and refreshing. Acquire.

Jus floral hyper aromatique à la sécheresse infinie. Les céréales se collent à l’amertume dans une longue finale. Frais et délicat.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Syracuse Beer Fest. Murky deep golden with a tight off-white head. Nice tropical fruit with some woodsy and spicy notes, fairly sticky caramel malt, a little phenolic (wet ash), interesting. Fruity, resinous, spicy and woodsy with fairly sticky caramel malt as a backbone; lightly sweet with firm bitterness and a long, caramel, spicy, pine, fruit finish.

Can from Binny’s. Slightly murky orange pour with a big pillowy white head. Lots of malt and pine in this. Clearly well made, but not really my style of IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly opaque orange/brass with a frothy looking head and medium sediment in the bottle. Aroma has nice notes of orange citrus, bread, caramel, pine, and resin. Taste is balanced. Citrus and pine mixed with resin, and them bready caramel, and a medium, resiny aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. A bit resiny in the mouth with a soft carbonation and dry finish. Overall a nice brew. Citrus and resin over top of a nice bready/caramel backbone.
