3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours almost amber with a thick tan head. Aroma is more bread and cereal than hops. Surprisingly complex. Starts bitter and stays bitter with serious grapefruit and dank hops, but then a soft, almost tropical fruit finish that comes in after the dankness. Itís a tad too bitter overall for me, but impressive nonetheless.

Bottle pour. Pours a dark orange, half a finger head. Not much aroma to speak of. Floral hop taste balanced by plenty of malt. Pretty good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy dark orange with an average size foamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops with a touch of malt to balance it out. Taste is flavourful-- citrus hops galore but still nicely balanced with malt. Medium bodied. Easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle from DMs with BB 3/11/15. Clear dark orange with an ample white head. Hoppy aromas with stonefruit (apricot), pine resin and citrus to the fore on top of a caramel biscuity malt bill. Taste is balanced bittersweetness with a substantially resinous dry hop finish that lingers. Palate is medium-fullish bodied and spritely. A great American-style IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Code date of 8/9/15. Appearance: Deep amber and clear with a light khaki head.
Aroma: relatively faint hop aroma for an American IPA. Some floral and herbal notes, but itís minimal. Caramel malt also noticeable.
Taste: Rich caramel and toasty malt flavors dominate, with a sharp hop bitterness that has some herbal and resinous notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with some viscosity and low carbonation.
Finish: Some lingering herbal bitterness and caramel malt.
Overall: Definitely an east coast as opposed to west coast IPA. More malt balanced than a west coast IPA. Drinks like a slightly hoppier American Amber

Amber, big foam. Filtered. Grassy resinous fruoty hops in the nose. Medium body. Taste is a bit flat, not incredible!
