2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Lightly hazy amber pour with a foamy off-white head. Nose is metallic with lightly floral and fruity hops. Dry pale malt. Taste is sweet and bready malt, a bit of citrus rind, some honey, and a bitter citrus finish. Lots of sweetness. Pretty warming. Slick and fairly thick with medium-carbonation. Too sweet for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a fest goblet displaying a hazed, deep, orangey amber color, with good persistence to both the creamy, off white head, and the wavy lacing. The aroma offered a little dankness at first, then decent maltiness, with a touch of sweetness, a bit of resinous pine, citrus, and some tropical scent. The taste presented some assertive, rindy, earthy, and lingering hop bitterness, a smooth, tempering malt content that created some light creaminess for the mouthfeel, and a medium body, with complementary carbonation. Sweetness remained on the tongue, the bitterness didn’t waver, and some dryness made an appearance at the finale. Maybe a bit too malty sweet throughout, imo. I doubt that it was age,(according to the label) but a solid IPA nonetheless.

Served in a bottle so I really can’t tell about appearance or aroma. Perhaps if I were to try a fresh pint in btown I could change it

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale yellow with a touch of amber. Little head with almost no lacing. Aroma is faintly hoppy, think earthy-piney and a faint caramel sweetness. Taste is pretty much the exact same. Medium body with high carbonation. Decent IPA but I wouldn’t track this one down
