3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a golden amber hue capped by a cream color head that is generated by ample amounts of carbonation. Nose is slight citrus and malt. Taste is palate wrecking bitterness followed by some flower notes, citrus. Not much malt presense in the taste but it transfers to a medium body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy amber body with a one finger fizzy beige head that faded slowly. The nose is a nice mix of citrusy hops with a slight Simcoe note over a toasty and caramel malt base. The flavor has a nice aggressive bitterness with a citrusy hop bite. The Simcoe seems to take the dominant hand here as well. Some moderate caramel maltiness, but the hops are clearly on the forefront. Nice lingering bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied with a sticky hoppiness. This is pretty nice, a bit of a change from the Hops Infusion of the past.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
STYLE: American IPA
LOOK: Sudsy copper and gelatinous. Not more than a bubble or two of carbonation and no head to speak of.
NOSE: An English IPA vibe. Much less American than expected. Some floral, piney hops are there, mostly overshadowed by leather and pavement if that makes sense.
MOUTH: Harsh. Astringent. And a too-long finish for what it is. Pulling myself together – petals, soap bar, one-way road, grapefruit rind.

Not as great as I expected from Weyerbacher. Bitter, but not as west coast as I thought it would be. OK, but not on my Repeat Soon list.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A clear one, golden in color and topped by a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is citrusy and resiny, with some malty notes. A little bit of peaches too. It’s quite dry on the palate, full-bodied and with a nice carbonation. The flavor is very bitter, without being unbalanced. Pine cones and resins and a faint touch of tropical fruits blend in. Lasting bitter finish. A really pleasant IPA, even though it would be nice with some more complexity. 130216
