Pours a golden yellow. Aroma of ripe green hops. Saaz or other Noble variety. Taste is candied sugar with a slow building peppery spice to balance the sweetness that still wins out in the end. I haven't had an IPa with these hops before. Very interesting.

Aroma of hops and grassiness. Light and crisp, full of hops. Citrus zest, a touch of malt, spice, and earthiness. A bit buttery in the finish. Some flavors remind me of an ESB.

A nice IPA. Has a very malty sweet aroma up front followed by citrus and pine and a bit of fruit. The flavor starts with the sweetness up front but gives way to a very bitter finish. Nice long lasting after taste and a nice burn too.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma is mildly soapy, some really nice piney notes with a faint citrus undertone. Nice, light amber color. Flavor is upfront slightly metallic, present bitterness. Nice piney finish. Bready malt background, hop forward. Solid IPA, at 7.3% I wouldn’t call it overly drinkable but the body is nice and light.
