3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A: Pours a murky copper color with TONS of yeast sediment in the glass. The head is a one finger offwhite shade. There’s a good creaminess to the texture, even if it fades moderately quickly. Still, it’s not exactly an attractive beer.
S: This has a pervasive biscuit quality to the aroma; it melds reasonably well with the textbook grapefruit peel and pine qualities from the hops. The maltiness is sweet and caramel-esque, like I expect. Typical, but I really like how strongly the aroma emanates from the glass.
T: The biscuit from the aroma subsides a bit, being supplanted by some initial grapefruit qualities. Still, this is one of the most biscuity IPAs I’ve ever had. Pine bitterness pops up in the midtaste before seemingly washing away on the finish. No one note here really stands out from the pack - however, it compensates by coming across as a great thirst quencher with a modicum of complexity.
M: While the body isn’t lightweight, it manages to drink crisply anyways. Astringency is balanced well, with only a moderate bitterness accumulating on the palate. Carbonation is high yet controlled in order to preserve the refreshment qualities this provides.
O: I reckon this one would really work during the summertime - in some ways, this drinks like a saison. There are better IPAs to be found, but there are also many worse ones as well.
Aroma sweet and hoppy with bready malt.. It has a frothy head with a hazy, orange-gold appearance. Flavors of citrus and substantial hops. Light bodied and thick textured, this beer is very drinkable and kinda delish. vinivini (2814) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUL 25, 2017

Bottle. Overall is very strong on the floral notes, a bit much so for my taste. Medium finish, fairly smooth. Okay all around but not super impressed. rejtable (2818) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2017

An amber color with a white head. The aroma contains some caramel, herbal notes, and citrus. The flavor is bitter but also malty. East Coast represent. The flavor contains some lemons, orange peel, and caramel notes. Some sour and bitter notes in the finish. Overall i prefer west coast hop bombs this balances things out well. Pretty good. oobawa (1647) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2017
Solid IPA, grapefruit-orange sweetness meshing with a mild caramel malt base. Piney and resinous on the fade with a bracing, resilient bitterness. Lovely.
