2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: golden amber. Fluffy white head. Some lacing.
Aroma: subtle piney-ness
Taste: harsh bitterness in the back of the mouth. Not my favorite blend of hops.
Palate: dry finish. Thin mouth feel. Nice effervescence from the carbonation.
Not my favorite IPA

Pours medium orange/amber with small offwhite head and thin lacing. Aromas of bready malt, citrus, pine and a little toffee. Taste is juicy and sweet to start quickly growing into a citrus bite with earthy hops. Finish is dry.

In a 12oz bottle. Tangy sweet hop aroma. Huge nectarine-hop flavor. Finishes with sweetness, sweetness and more sweetness. Hops overwhelm the malts just like you’d expect in a booming West Coast-style IPA.

Clear, deep amber-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. The aroma has orange rind with light pine and some faint cereal. It has a medium body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a relatively mild finish.

Had at a friends place while bottling home brew. Poured an amber color with a small white head. Aroma was lots of fresh citrus notes, grapefruit is light, some tropical notes of mangoes. Flavor was some pine hops, grass notes, and a nice sweet malt backing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a thin off white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma has lots of fresh, piney, grapefruit hops. The taste has gobs and gobs of grapefruit, slight mango and a little bit of pine. Grapefruit is the dominating flavor here. The end palate leaves a lingering bitterness backed up by the caramel malts. Creamy feeling body with moderate carbonation.
