4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. The pour on this is a not quite clear gold with perhaps a lightly ruby hue. There isn't really any head to speak of, and the lace doesn't exist either. The aroma is very piney with some hoppiness and a nice citrus tone with it. The flavor is great. It's a nice balance between a bitter hoppiness and a great floral tone, while keeping the citrus prominent and a touch of pineyness on the back end. The mouth feel is good, coats just enough, and the aftertaste is rather delightful as well. Much better than I was expecting.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Single bottle from W&M Mansfield. Pours out a cloudy-hazy light golden color. Some stuff floating around. Honey-spice-pine aromas. Flavor is quite bland at first. Much better as it warms. Somewhat peppery, like a good saison, but plenty of spicy bitterness. Slight bit of citrus too. Very good overall.

On tap. Big head. Well carbonated. I’m getting a dirty sock filed with sliced grapefruit. Mellow thick and sweet. Tastes flat, and the aroma is funky. Might be the glass... unfortunate. Not fanatic.

All ipas should strive for this level of c awesomeness. Pours a shimmering yellow with beautiful white lacing. Aromas and flavors melon and honey dew and tropical goodness. Enough lupulin in there to keep hopheads satiated. Amazing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Where and how: bottle 355 ml
Aroma old school Victory. Aromatic hops, sugar dipped mango. Mild peppery hints with semi dry alcohol that balances sweetness well. Traditional straight old school 2IPA with some tweaks.
Top: long lived creamy snowy white cap. Superb lace on glass.
Base: sunny amber with chill? haze.
Palate : soft, semi full bodied, delicate carbonation but not flat. Delicate set up yet flavorful. Mastery craftsmanship apparent.
Taste: subtle that one might wrongly call it simplistic. Fine detail are hiding in corners. Leafy citrusy bitters with soft sweet mid-top-end.
Other notes dangerously approachable, pleasure to have one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is really nice and starts with a hops and citrus aroma. The flavor is mild, bitter, potent. All alcohol is covered. The finish is sweet and just slightly spicy.
