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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light amber with two finger white head. Aroma is of grassy and citrusy hops with a touch of malt. Flavor is not overpowering at all- nice amount of hops meld together for a relaxing brew. Not amazing in the flavor department, but tasty just the same. Some malt character creeps in there as well to sweeten the bitterness. Palate is pretty rich for the style- feels almost creamy. Nice IPA.
