3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Amber, hazy, small but lacy off-white head, distinctive spicy piney-hoppy nose, maybe some more exotic fruits underneath, caramel detectable; quite dry moderate bitter-sweet flavour, quite light bodied for a beer of 7.0%; dry and lingering piney-hoppy finish with traces of dark malt and the good old cough syrup, all in all a bit harsh. Not a world-class brew, but still a chunky IPA…

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep clear copper color with about a 1" white head that sustains pretty well.
Smell is bready/grainy with some pine. A bit too malt forward for an IPA.
Taste is similar. Strong bready and caramel malt bakcbone with some slightly astringent pine dry bitter finish. Hints of some wood as well give it a unique taste.
Mouthfeel is good with good carbonation.
Perfectly drinkable beer although the dry bitter finish may make having more than 1-2 of these unpalatable. Nothing horrible, but nothing great either.
