3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is pine, malts and a hint of grass. The flavor is citrus, mild grapefruit, fruit and a grassy and bitter finish. Decent IPA, great cause.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Caponeís in Philadelphia.
The beer is light orange hued with a white head and some random lacing. The aroma is hop forward, with some earthy notes. The hop profile is a bit sharp, and has an English character about it. The body is light to medium. Clean and easy drinking. Not my favorite hop profile. I would prefer less balance, and more citrus fruit flavors. A decent brew, and worth a try.
Serving type: on-tap

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours golden amber with a white head. Piney hops aromas with grapefruit, resin, caramel, and a bit of yeast. Flavor is thin bodied but full of hops. Pine, citrus, and caramel stand out. Drinks nice but it just needs a little more body to be awesome.

12 ounce bottle from State Line. Pours a clear amber color with a thin foamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big sticky resin hops, herbal notes, candied citrus. The taste is very catty, herbal and a faint bit of resin. Medium bodied. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
THOUGHTS: Not enough balance. Not enough malt to balance all the hops. Maybe they should stick to imperial stouts and sours.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, dark, brownish orange with an average, off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma was every weak compared to the flavor, but contained light cookie; very light caramel; and light to moderate perfume, pine, citrus and earthy hops. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and moderate to heavily bitter; while the finish was heavily bitter and slightly acidic with a long duration. There was grain, slight citrus, pine, concentrated grapefruit, citrus rind, metallic hops and straight up hop pellets. The nearly medium body was dry with fizzy carbonation and a dry and metallic finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Danís after Top of the Hops tasting. Clear golden pour with minimal offwhite head. Very earthy, foresty, woody, slightly lemony hops. Strong lingering bitterness. Body is a little watery. Kinda like hop tea mixed with an ipa. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mostly clear lightly hazy golden with a smaller white head limited retention... Malty sweet fruit with a light hoppiness underneath... Not nearly hoppy enough to be called an ipa... Medium to medium thin body...
