I haven’t rated a hop project in a while. This one smells a little spicy. It has a thin but sticky head that leaves a lot of lacing. The oiliness of the hops lingers in your mouth, but not in a bad way. Pretty sessionable!

Bottle brought back from TN by my buddy JD. Thanks buddy! Unfortunately, this beer seems like it was past it’s prime. Could not get past a couple whiffs and sips before dumping down the drain.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks JD! Pours a soft and clean golden amber with one finger of two fingers of dense off white head. Nose is a little...meh. I get some muddled and oxidized papery hop notes. Woody hops and some skunky notes. Flavor is similar. Not sure what happened here. Smells/tastes like age could be a part of it but mostly it just seems ill conceived. Muddled and combative hop character that leans too heavily towards herbal/woody/resinous hops.

Deep gold pour with creamy white head. Aroma of sweet malt and a touch of bread and citrus. Sweet malt, a touch of floral hops and then some citrus. Medium body with ok carbonation. An ok beer but not special.

Several of the recent hop projects have been pretty good. This one is not. Heavy, earthy malt flavors hide any hop nuance. Ugh.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber color with a modest head. Smell was faintly hoppy. Taste was malty and sharply hoppy, somewhat grassy. I think this IPA needs a little tweaking.
