4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz can bottled 11/14 from Biervana. Appealing cakey-orange pour with nice cap. Dank sweetish lemon rind cake and with hints of wet lemongrass and lime and grapefruit peel in aroma. Taste is a full bite of textured, layered and dry lemon cake, thick biscuit malts with a well-lasting, strong lime peel and lemongrass finish. Pure designed goodness and another East Coast IPA that finds my fancy.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the most two-faced IPA’s I’ve encountered... Pours with a huge thick damn near crusty head. Clear orange-yellow color bits of hop floaties remain. Aroma is certainly of hops and grassy flavors but honestly I thought this beer smelled like shit, like that two-week old rotten grass that you smell underneath your push lawnmower type shit. I went into this beer almost cringing....yet what I tasted was damn-near zen-like. A glorious balance of citrus-forward grapefruit, dank weed, and evergreen notes that tingle with delight on the tongue. A subtle burn from carbonation and alcohol make a nice compliment for this one. A very nice example of the style taste-wise I would put it side by side against any West Coast IPA of renown reputation...but man, I have to believe I must have gotten a bad can or something with that smell. Good stuff.

Cloudy Orange pour from a 12oz can at cosmos. Waitress made a special ry to get this guy for me next door. White head. Peach and apricot taste. Fruity and hoppy deliciousness.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap in Charleston, clear golden pour with frothy thick white head. Aroma of mouth watering pine. Malty, smooth and not too bitter, this stuff is so drinkable! Head retention and lacing were remarkable

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Some cans from a trade. Pours a bright yellow orange color with a thick white foamy head on the pour. Settles with a thick lacing layer. Great nose of orange juiciness and fresh hop bitterness. Crisp freshness and nice carbonation. Citrus flavors and sharp hops fill this one. Very drinkable and refreshing. Would definitely be a go to if I could. Solid.
