3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - Piny Skunky hops, very fresh. Cloudy gold with nice rich beige head. Piny hops, with an upfront bitter hit and tropical fruit in the finish. Bitterness is a bit much for me.

"Dark pour. Body like a double, big and smooth without the alcohol. Malt forward with a very pleasant fruitiness, though the hops do get drowned out a little. Not bad, not great."

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From 12oz can to shaker. Pour is a nice orange color with a thick off white head. Nose is big hop, strong grapefruit, other light citrus notes. Taste is a lighter body, bitter but very balanced out with sweetness from the grapefruit. Finishes a little dry. Nice IPA

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Herbal, citrus fruit, floral hop aroma. Similar hop flavor--plus subtle pepper. Kind of a stale-ish earthy and tart/apple flavor. Pretty firm bitterness. Need to try/rate again, if I ever get a chance.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy copper under a nice foamy off-white head. Pretty nice nose of sweet fruity caramel with some papaya and mango hops, perhaps a bit of pine and raw coconut as well. Really interesting hop nose. The flavor is a bit yeasty and muddled but there’s this bright tropical tone shining through, with some nice piney bitterness and some rich cracker-y caramel. It’s noticeably flawed but I still find it tasty.

Huge ass grapefruit and toffee biscuit malt body. Very straight forward but hops to the head.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thin head amber color. Big stone fruit, passion fruit, mango nose. Big malt backbone balances out a lot of hops, but really well balanced. Not too sweet and more herbaceous character in the mouth. Ballsy, but not gangster, and I love that balance.

Cloudy dark orange. Lacing and no head, very white. Sips full and citrus. Great body and hop punch. Middle of the road carbonation and big dry orange/grapefruit finish. Alc at 7.4 is well balanced. This is a big brew from a brewery I’m just learning about. Had off tap at wob on the wingman brewery night.
