3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid IPA. Nose of citrus and pine resin. Deep amber, small head. Taste of citrus and grapefruit and caramel and sweet malts; good balance between strong malts and strong bitter hops. Bitter finish. Mouth is almost cloying, not with sticky sweetness but with sticky resin.

The beer to end all beers. Its opaque copper patina color and foamy white head should never be seen because this beer comes in a can like all beer should. Its aroma is earthy stink. Its flavor is malty, bubbling and bitter. Plenty of nuttiness. Satisfetcho desde ahora.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very nice golden color. Citrus on the nose with some grassy pine notes. Malty on the finish, with the same citrus and grass upfront. A very nice example of the style.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber color and thick with citrus hops. This is an excellent IPA and with lots of malts for that high ABV then overly hopped to keep it bitter. Only complaint is that slight metalic aftertaste. Many say the can doesn’t cause that but when putting this high acidic brew in a can I sitll say it creates a metallic taste. Sad to see so many brewers going the way of the can.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice aroma of hops, citrus, and pine. Nice deep yellow color with a whiteish tan head. Great balance of flavors up front. Sweet malt and palatable bitterness from the hops. Balanced. Finishes smooth with an aftertaste that lingers. Very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at my local hang out. Sold as Hop Notch, but apparently its the same thing. Served in a shaker pint. Poured orange with a slight haze and a one finger white head. Good amount of lace. Heavy pine resin and grapefruit aroma. Taste also features a good amount of sharp hop bite. Mostly pine and citrus. Malts are there, but they’re hiding under the bed, in fear of their lives. Full in the mouth with a resinous coating on the tongue. Finish is quite bitter. Been drinking a lot of this lately.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Momo's. Hazy copper pour with a frothy white head. Dank, pine and citrusy hops fill the nose with mild bread malts in the background. Sweetish, smooth entry with sticky tropical and dank hops ending with a prickly bitter ending. Not bad at all.

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops with some earthy notes. Flavor is strong of the citrus hops up front that leads to the floral hops and caramel malts. Decent bitter finish as well.
