3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy slightly off-white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, floral, and pine hops with some sweet caramel and bready malts.
T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit, pineapple, and orange hops with some bitterness and sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some floral and pine hops come through with some more bitterness and some bready and biscuity malts. The finish is a mix of tropical, citrus, floral, and pine hops with some bitterness, sweet bready malts, and a bit of booze.
M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice hops profile with good bitterness and pretty decent malt and hop balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from papago 9/3/11.
bright coppery color with a creamy and dense looking whitish head.
dank initial aroma...followed by pine, gf pithiness, oj, caramel, wet wort, cereal, florals, green onions, honey and earthy hops.
the flavor and palate have a ton of alcohol, spice and boozy drying... florals, spicy finish, mild tartness in the mid palate, pine, caramel, pithy and a nice bitterness. reminds me a lot of west coast ipa but bigger. gets sweeter as it warms but booze and hops keep it lighter.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow, greabt beer! Poured at a good temperature with a large, foamy, frothy, cream-colored head that slowly settles and lots of lace. Color is a clear amber with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is hoppy, miialt, grain, fruit. Flavor is like nose, bitter/sweet/carbonic tang well balanced. Body is soft, carbonation muted, and chewy. Fiinish is like flavor, long, boozy, and easy drinking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: pours opaque apricot orange, minimal cream ring. Fair amount of bubbly carbonation. Nose- earth, herbal, dank weed, fresh, pear, tropical fruit. Flavors are clean, herbal malt, dough, citrus hops. Fairly bitter, dry finish. Spicy heat letting you know the alcohol is there but it's not overbearing. I find this quite good and balanced

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the Nook @ Dunedin Brewery. Pours a deep caramel amber with a white head. Nose is lots of caramel, a big shot of citrus that seems to compliment the malt profile well along with some alcohol burn. Flavor is similar to nose with the hops playing well with the malt profile and an enjoyable sipper of an IPA at almost 10%.
