3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Kroger. I have gone through about 4 of these. Pours a deep copper amber with an ivory head. Fruity ester and floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation. The malt backbone is just like previous versions - caramel, toasty, with some german esque qualities. Spicy and grapfruity bitterness that carries through to the finish. Somewhat Sierra Nevadaish, but still has some of that green flavor that I don’t care for - but it seems to be getting less pronounced in recent versions. But I am just being picky -it’s still a good IPA. Otherwise I wouldn’t continue to buy it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is fairly faint, but there is a little bit of grapefruit and some iced tea notes. The flavor is more aggressive. I get some grapefruit and tea, as well as some biscuit malt and a medium amount of bitterness. Medium motuhfeel and medium carbonation.

This combination of hops creates the exact flavor of grapefruit but incredibly bitter. Its definitely interesting but isnt all that pleasant to drink. I love the concept of these hop project beers.

This is bitter orange juice, creative and tasty but that finish is way too bitter. Solid 3.5 here
