2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks GT. Hazy orange amber pour with a small offwhite head. The aroma starts with doughy citrus, especially grapefruit, and finishes off with an unfortunate sudsy soap note. The flavor is fairly one dimensional- grapefruit and orange with bready caramel malts. Medium palate with an ever present resin and soap. Not bad, save the slight off flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. Appearance is a translucent copper with a fluffy white head of foam. Aroma is piney and spicy at the same time. Taste is spicy and bitter with a long dry finish. The beer has a nice malty bready note that really balances everything out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy murky yellow color with a white head. The aroma is exactly what I expect from an American IPA. I get a lot of pine and orange notes with a little bit of bready malt.
The flavor is more of the same. I get some pine and papaya, as well as some bread and biscuit malt. There is a lot of hop flavor but the bitterness is fairly low for this style of beer.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
