3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells of sour citrus hops with a strong malt presence. Taste is very balanced malts and hops, unusual for an IPA, but not bad. Good choice if you don’t like hops too much.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a slight hops smell. A golden colored brew with a faint hop scent. It’s not too bad of a brew but I’d recommend this one for a beginner of the hops flavored beer. Most likely my boy named Phattie. Learn the brews man......learn them!! Go B’s!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours an amber body with a 3 finger white head. Aroma is malty with subtle floral hints of hop spiciness. Flavor is very malty caramel with strong hop bitterness, it prickles the tounge as it enters your mouth. Notes of honey and light etoh in the finish. Big hop resins and other fruits to finish. good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white head recedes leaving spot lacing. Sour resin aromas. Strawberries and resin from front to back. The non-citrus fruity flavors threw me off.

Bottle 355 ml
Appearance: Heavily hazed amber dark brew with medium, creamy head. 3+
Nose: Straight yet proper blend of sweet malt and west coast hops. Perhaps bit drier than one might expect to be. 7-
Flavor/Palate : Medium light bodied. Hoppy, nutty with woody finish. Unexpected development for an IPA. Raw herbal, tea like bitters with soft slight caramel like base. Peculiar in its own way.
