I like the aroma but not very strong. This looks like what a pale ale should look like. Pale! Don’t let the color fool you . This IPA has a bite

12oz can from Valhalla’s Goat. Hazy yellow amber, massive foamy head. Big biscuit pine hop aroma. Resin biscuit flavour - surprisingly weaker than aroma. Dry hoppy grapefruit aftertaste. A bit watery. Start is better than finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from trade with jrob21. Pours a cloudy gold color with a medium foamy head that lingers very nicely and leaves some decent lacing. Fairly complex and hoppy aroma of grapefruit, oranges, pine, peaches, and mangoes. Taste is solid too. Very light sweetness and strong bitterness. Fresh and somewhat juicy hops. Seems to get better the more I’m drinking it. Nice, long citrus finish. Medium body, a little oily in the mouthfeel. Really good IPA.

Can thanks to icehawk ! Pours a nice orange golden color with two fingers of sticky eggshell foam. The nose is pungent with pine, citrus and traces of bubblegum and mint as well. The palate is aggressive and follows the nose nicely with great complexity of flavors that flow from pine sap, citrus and touches of herbal mint and a hint of bubblegum sweetness. Big flavors front to back with great round mouthfeel that is lightened with great carbonation and a long bitter finish.

Pours a hazy gold from the can with nice cap of off-white head that leaves great lace. Aroma of nice citrus with a slight bready back end. Taste follows, slight earthy notes under the citrus of the hops. Nicely done, but nothing spectacular.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler. Clear pale amber with a large white head that leaves rings of lace. Aroma of mandarin, grapefruit, peach, caramel, a little pine. Taste is sweet and fruity with peach and mandarin, slight tropical notes (mango), grapefruit. Soft, clean mouthfeel - very nice, and no sign at all of the 6.8%ABV. A bit on the plainly sweet side of things in the malt department, but the finish is pretty dry. Moderate bitterness, lingering citrus. Very gluggable. Straightforward and very nice indeed.
