3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale almost clear amber pour thin off white head and sticky striped lacing ... very light aroma of earthy hops, light caramel malts .... taste is a strange twist of citrusy hops, earthy and spicy hops (almost rye like flavors) and biscuity/caramel malt flavors ... none of the flavors really dominate they just take turns ... has a nice dry bitter hop bite to it that lingers into the finish ... abv is hidden well ... i see why they call it hops confusion, but its actually sessionable and not too bad

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy amber color with small vanishing head and good white lacing. Difficult to smell...citrus and hops mainly. Good bitterness right away, some orange peel as well as other citruses and yeast in the flavor. Each sip slowly mellows in the mouth. Body is medium with some carbonation and good bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Macgreggor’s. Pours a lighter amber-orange color with mid-sized head. Not as hop-bitter as some IPAs. The malt flavors come through quite strongly. Sweet aftertaste and finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden beer with a white head. Aromas of floral hops, and tropical fruit. Tastes of crisp herbal/floral hops, bits of pine needles, and some tropical fruit sweetness. Nice malty backbone compliments the hops quite nicely. Pretty good, what one can expect from a tasty IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden with foamy cream head. Aromas of honey on a biscuit and passionfruit. Touch of honey in the flavor too followed by bitter. Sweetness keeps lurking, though. Sweeter than I prefer but definitely quaffable.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330mL bottle, pours amber with topical fruit/grass and caramel on the nose... an amazing aroma. Caramel dominates the flavour but the hop complexity is also there and i’m really enjoy this beer.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from the local taphouse. Great, very hoppy IPA. Aromas of caramel, resin, and grass. Taste starts sweet, with bitterness taking over for a very long finish. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.
