3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is of caramel malts and citrus and pine hops. Plenty of citrus and pine hops on the flavor. Decent bitterness on the finish, not too strong. Well balanced with the caramel malts.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A clear amber pour with a smallish light beige head. Lots of juicy grapefruits, zesty citrus rinds, resiny pine needles, and an earthy graininess in the somewhat perfumed/grassy aroma. Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. A tad watery here and there. The taste starts with a crackery graininess. Earthy and wheaty in the middle. Some zesty citrus fruits and rinds at the end. Finishes crisp and slightly dry. One-sided, but very poundable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. A decent IPA, but my least favorite offering from Weyerbacher. Grass hop scent, very faint, with a little sweet citrus on the finish. Translucent bronze pour, foamy head. LIghter than medium body with a slightly sticky feel. Bitter grass hop taste, very one dimensional. I’ll stick with the Double Simcoe or the Infused Hop from Weyerbacher in the future.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The ratings for this beer are way too low. The aroma alone should get it in the upper ranges. A malt base with a huge pine aroma. Just what a piney like me likes. The flavor is not as good, mostly malt with just a hint of the pine. Slightly thin but way better than my peers have rated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
No bottling date.
A: Clear amber body with a stream of fine carbonation bubbles while a thin white head sits on top.
S: This smells like it’s a lot higher in alcohol than it is, lots of hop aromas as well, very fresh smelling. Grapefruit takes the main aroma with some sweeter citrus backing.
T: Well this is a very weird beer, it tastes very unrefined. At times this is very watery, and at times the hops hit hard. Slight sweet citrus hops on the intro, the mid-taste hits hard of grapefruit, and the finish just drops all flavor quickly.
M: Light bodied with light carbonation.
O: This is a massive disappointment really, there’s nothing really redeeming about this at all. Weyerbacher is very hit or miss and this is a miss.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin off white head thats short lived. Skinny, stringy lace. Lightly hazy, copper/orange hued brew.Nose is dry and earthy, light citrus notes. Bigger/medium bodied with a lightly prickly carbonation, lil oily and resiny, acidic. Dry malts are a hint toasty with nice citrusy hop notes and the simcoe standing out. Lil leafy and inky. Dry finish has a good bitterness. Better than expected. Bottle from statelineliquors.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle: Pours bronze orange with a small white head and big CO2 column; decent lacing. Aroma is floral and citrus hops, with a nice bready malt. Taste is slightly bitter on the front and dry and bitter on the finish, slightly salty. Rough on the palate due to bitterness, not the easiest to drink and strong dry finish. Decent but nothing special overall.
