3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: Nothing crazy. Just a well-made IPA. Nice balance and great transition.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a light to medium orange with a small, off-white head that mostly diminished an left good lacing. The aroma contained moderate bread, caramel and cracker; light pine, orange and other citrus hops; eventually heavy resinous hops; and apricot. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and moderately bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet and nearly heavily bitter with a long duration. There was caramel, pale malt, bread, cracker, citrus hops, pine hops, resinous hops, orange and apricot. The medium body was a little oily with fizzy carbonation and a dry and slightly metallic finish.

Pours a slightly hazy dark gold color. Very faint hop aroma. Starts a bit tart, then heads towards vinegar then quickly turns to an earthy bitterness. Hints of wood in the finish.

12 oz bottle. Thanks Andy Skaggs! Pours a clear light orange with fading white head. Aroma is biscuit, bread and mild hop notes. Flavor is mild, more malt than hops. Slight oxidation, I doubt this was fresh. I’ve had several times, I’ve always thought it was average.
