4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
My 1st live rate in a long while. This is courtesy of markwise who shipped me some FL goodness in growler format. Thanks Mark. It pours with a slightly hazy deep copper body supporting a nice full tan head of foam that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The aroma offers up citrusy notes like grapefruit and lime peel as well as a thin soft sweet malt backbone. There really isn’t much soft about the flavor. I get grapefruit citrus and pine sap that quickly moves into more and more resiny hop bitterness that leans in the direction more of piney bitterness than citrus. Behind the big hoppy goodness I get a light amount of malt sweetness and a sense of roasted malts. This isn’t a clean refreshing IPA but rather one you can sink you teeth into . . . . over and over again. I will, because thanks to Mark I have 32oz of this tasty elixir. Nice nearly robust resiny IPA.
Pours hazy copper with a finger of off-white head. Aroma is very floral and perfumey, with some tropical fruit and hints of grapefruit. Taste is weirdly medicinal bitter and astringent, with loads of lime zest. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation. Maybe I got a bad one, but this just wasn’t very good... jtclockwork (17284) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2015

Pours cloudy , cloudy, cloudy brown with a thick off white head. Aroma is like a heavy black IPA with plenty of hoppy resin. Taste is green citrus rind and lots of bitterness. One dimensional, but straight forward.

32 ounce growler from brewery pours a amber red color with off-white head that lasts quite a while with some nice lacing. Nice piney hop aroma that could be stronger. Nice malty flavor balance in an IPA. Almost a bit of chocolate aftertaste. haukur (2103) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - JUN 28, 2014
Darkest of the Category # IPAs. Deep almost dark amber, small but firm head, loads of lacing. Nose is resiny, small citrus, some herbs. Medium bodied, nice long bitterness. This is very good! SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
En fût au Riverside Market Cafe. Une robe ambrée. Un beau col généreux. Un nez plein de pamplemousse et d’agrumes avec des notes timides de caramel foncé. Une bouche franche et houblonnée, débordante d’amertume avec des agrumes mais aussi avec des conifères et du soleil. J’apprécie encore une fois le caractère effacé des céréales maltées. Au palais, une bière huileuse qui glisse de façon admirable. En finale, une amertume intense et presque violente qui s’adresse aux plus aventureux. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2013
On draft at Due South, Cajun Cafe Fall Festival, and Hunahpu Day. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is some sweet caramel, some big citrus and grapefruit notes along with some citrus pith and bitterness. Flavor follows with caramel up front, quickly wiped by the onslaught of citrus and grapefruit hops that continue to linger into the finish. Light to medium in body with a very assertive hop character.
