3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer ours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of grassy hops and some bready malt. Not as hoppy smelling as I expect from an American IPA. The flavor is basically the same, with a lot of grass and citrus. However, I also get some orange citrus notes, but they are well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hopefully this was a bad bottle because this was a bad beer.v It looked fantastic with a cloudy amber and a small dense head. There was no aroma, maybe just a hint of malt to be kind. The flavor was like a big lager, malty and sweet. No hint of any hops like you would expect. The finish was watery and bland. Nothing to recommend here.

Bottle thanks to Douglas. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges quickly and laced nicely. Aroma has a good amount of grains and bread with a bit of a grassy hop note. Flavor is similarly malty with grains and bread throughout with a bit of grass and a hint of flora toward the finish.

it smells largely of pine.... also wet wood, citrus (especially orange) and spicy hops.
the flavor is quite similar... very dry and a bitterness on the finish.
crisp medium body. dry and very refreshing. 6/3/6/4/14/3.3

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light orange hue with a white head. Hoppy aroma. Flavor is pretty disappointing. It tastes like they took a good IPA, then watered it down so they could make a larger batch, haha! The slight malts and large hops I was expecting all taste too watery and ruins the beer. The finish is the same - instead of a strong, bitter finish you’re left with a ’blah’ hoppiness. Don’t recommend it for hopheads. 4% alcohol.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light, clear copper orange color with a foamy white head that stays well. Caramel and citrus hop notes and some light fruits. Pretty tame on the hop front in terms of the taste, and way too much of a malt balance for me. I mean, I get that it’s not trying to kill the palate, but a bit more is needed. Bit watery. Just OK.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper pour, creamy mostly white head. Aroma of christmas trees, grapefruit peel, honey and unripe stone fruit. Flavor has some up front malty sweetness followed by a light citrus bitterness and a bit or resin. Not bad.
