3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Dean! Pours a clear gold with an orange hue and near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of pine with a bit of grapefruit and onion with a hint of sweet grain underlying. Flavor has a strong pine note with a bit of resin and a bit of backing onion. Slight backbone of caramel.

Bottle shared by b3shine on the bus at RBWG. Thanks Beau! This bottle was only one month old but goddamn have I become so picky about my ipa’s being fresh that 1 month now seems likes 6 to me (and Bangs). This beer tasted old to me. Not a lot of hop character, lots of sweeter malt, cheesy hops, vanilla, butterscotch. Was actually hard to finish the small sample.

Aromas of grapefruit, piney, and floral hops, and some subtle caramel. Clear orange-amber with mostly fading, off-white head foam. Very bitter and dry. Light-medium bodied, average carbonation, with a clean, snappy, bitter finish.

2 ounce bottle shared by Beernadz, thanks for the share, poured an amber color with aromas of grapefruit rinds, hops, and light bitterness. Flavors are the same less citrusy hops then expected, light toffee in the flavor as well. Thanks again for the share.

Wales bro. Shit tastes good. Amber pour with a small off white head. Very clear. We are off to a great start. Strong mango and cantaloupe aroma. Pine, pined apple, caramel, toffee, lemon/lime zest, sour diesel, pine tar, etc. etc. This one captures a ton of different hop signatures but it all comes together without being overly disjointed. My only complaint is it is rather bitter for my tastes, but hey, it’s an IIPA and people like that shit. Not fucken bad.
