5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Flat out the best beer I’ve ever had. Perfect combination of flavor in a delightfully hoppy powerful brew. Poured from the twenty two ounce bottle into a nice craft beer glass to appreciate the color, texture, and unfiltered beauty. Simply a sublime Belgian IPA artfully brewed in NH, with a good bit of character from the sticks coming through in a pine undertone.

Bottle courtesy of Adam from Sloop at TAP-NY. Pours a hazed amber with a large white head. Smells of old paper and infections. Sweet old paper, old fruit. Nasty old toast. Finishes with the flavor of old angry fruits.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reasonably complex flavors, with the hops (classic Cascade notes) and the spicy and lightly-to-moderately yeasty fruitiness also there. Not a spectacular finish, but all around good. Bottle.

bottle. murky dark orange under a small cream colored head. floral and earthy hops with bruised peaches and a pinch of pepper in aroma. flavor is quite complex actually. you can taste all the different ends. the pungent, citrusy west coast hop influence, the peppery spicy yeast and syrupy light fruits. an earthy, full bodied beer with a lot of flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) cloudy amber colour with a small tan head; aromas of fruit; honey; very bitter flavour with a long bitter finish. Definitely an IPA and not a Belgian.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; poured a dirty amber color with a huge light khaki head. Aroma of ripe fruit, caramel, yeast, must and a bit of flowers. Flavor had some elements that I could not pick out. Haven’t had a beer with this flavor profile in a bit. Flavor was a bit all over the place. Both hoppy and malty but a bit messy. A bit disappointing.
