3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Poured orange in color (when held up to the light) with just a touch of haze. Head is off-white and initially stood almost two fingers tall. Thereís some good retention, and even better lacing being left behind on the sides on my glass.
Aroma: Pine Resin, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Lime Zest, Caramel Malt, and Iím also getting some subtle Earthy Tones.
Taste: Thereís a good amount of pine resin up front. A wave a malt sweeps over the palate and makes a futile attempt to tame the sticky hop bitterness. The caramel malt flavors start to successfully push through towards the back end. The finish is chalk full of lingering unsweetened grapefruit-like bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with just under moderate carbonation. You can almost feel the resinous character eating through your enamel.
Moreyís Bottom Line: I like IPAís that have nice lingering flavor, but this is just a little too one-note for me. Itís sticky and bitter, but thereís not much else going on. With all of the work that Weyerbacher put into creating a new year-round Ipa, I guess that I just expected a bit more. Still, this is not bad by any means. If youíre craving a sticky hop forward IPA, this one outta quench your thirst.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a soapy white head that leaves a nice film. Aroma has strong earthy pine some citrus rind and mild malt. Taste has bitter hops of lemon rind, grapefruit and pine which is earthy soil some herbal notes with yeast and malt in the finish. Palate is medium fizzy carbonation slightly juicy with a chalky finish. Iím not totally digging this, but I also find myself wanting more!?

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pored from 12oz bottle. Really a hop bomb here but not in a good way. Tasted off and the hop additions didn't lend smoothness as one would expect.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a hazed, dingy amber-hued body with a small, altogether brief, whitish head.
Smell: Pine and paper, soapy resins, citric citrus, grasses and muddy, muddled yeast cakes. Oh, some weak toast and pale malts.
Taste: Pale malts, a snap of grains, and a moist mealy quality. Low, short-lived sweetness. Citric orange, resins, tropical fruits, and grassy hops backed with an earthy yeastiness. Moderate bitterness. Hint of shredded mint leaf. Bitter, drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Uninteresting, a bit disappointing. Just keep telling yourself "itís for charity, itís for downtrodden animals." Think of the animals!

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Blah. Very underwhelming. Aroma is a bit of sourish malt. A bit of metal on the front. No real characteristics here.
