3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sticky piney fruity in the nose and palate. Pours pale orange with clinging white head. Nice bitter finish, could be a little better balanced, but very nice and crisp hop profile. Nice beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft sampled at Magic City Brewfest. Pumped through the Randall! Poured deep amber with a large off-white head. Aroma was hoppalicious: piney, citrusy, floral. Lots of caramel. Flavor was flavorfully hoppy but only mildly bitter. Big malt backbone. Medium, slightly oily mouthfeel. A surprisingly drinkable IIPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This one didn’t wimp out over time like some IPA which don’t have the bitter side. The Huntsville folks are all doing the IPA correct. Not bitter all hops. Very enjoyable. Tried through a hop rocket at the Nook. Sweet with a hop balance. I’ll get it again!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice. Orange with a medium head that quickly fades to a thin ring. Not overly bitter and has a relatively sweet overtone that sticks in your mouth. well-balanced hops with the expected pine and citrus. not quite angry enough to be imperial in my book, but an excellent IPA non-the-less.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Nook. Pours a bright orange with a thin and fleeting head. The aroma is floral and citrus hops, with oats and light caramel. The flavor is subdued bitterness, and a nice spicy touch. The palate is medium, a little acidic, and sticky. The finish is relatively clean. Overall, a solid IIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at The Nook Huntsville AL. Dark gold and just a bit hazy. Small white head. Nose is mild, sweet hops with some mustiness. Taste is slightly musty, with the hoppiness factor slight sedated compared to other IIPA’s. It’s a bit sticky and extremely bitter on the end. The flavor profile comes out fuller when it warms. Nice full body with good carbonation. Nice beer.
