3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Wild Woods Brewing, this pours a golden copper into the glass, with a diminutive suds head that leaves light lacing. The nose is of muddy citrus, pine needles and some pale biscuity malt. The biscuit shows up in the flavor, alongside citrusy grapefruit, hints of caramel, and finishing with peel/zest notes and a lingering pine accent. The medium body and resinous mouthfeel are highly drinkable. An enjoyable IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper in color with a thin white head. Herbal and piney hop aroma that isn’t too off putting, with a light lavender honey sweetness underneath. Flavor is nice and crisp with a calm an relaxing hop bitterness...it’s bitter but not bitter in the way most IPAs are. Nice relaxing grassy and floral hop notes mix with lavender-honey from the nose as well as a quiet malty caramel tone. Some quiet hop resin throughout as well. This is an IPA you’d give your mom while you lounge on the front porch on a cool summers eve. And I love it for that.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, grapefruit, slight grass, pine, hints of earth, DMS as it warmed up, slight caramel, and biscuit as well. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, DMS, mixing into some pine, grass, slight orange and grapefruit, hints of grass, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet. Just too bad that the DMS was in there.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap @ Wild Woods Brewery. Pours an orangish appearance with a cream colored head. At first, there’s just bland herbal, earthy, light citrusy hoppy notes in the aroma and flavor with a slight caramel chewiness but after letting it warm up a bit, diacetyl starts to seep through and ruin the beer. Too bad.

bitter and astringent juniper berries with syrupy, flabby and watery, sweet crystal malt throughout. the hops are overly bitter, the malt overly sweet and the juniper clashes with both.
