4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a one finger white head. Abundant carbonation allows a rocky head to be maintained nearly throughout the entire drink with tons of rocky lacing clinging to the glass.
Aroma just screams west coast IPA. Tons and tons of citrus from the hops and is very "in your face." Pineapple, mango, and tangerine along with a solid bready malt base. Really a mouthwatering aroma.
All of these wonderful characteristics continue over into the flavor. Tropical fruit immediately that just seems to spread across the mouth. There is a very juicy quality that I just love. Some light bread provides just enough malt to keep the hops balanced. High bitterness but not to the point of being overbearing or unpleasant. Mouthfeel is on the sticky and chalky side which I am not crazy about but it is a small price to pay.
Overall, an absolutely amazing IPA out of Ohio that rivals the best coming out of California. I am so happy I found this beer and plan on picking up many more before heading back to TN.

Draft at the Industry. Clear body, medium golden, soft fluffy head. . Pretty gentle, but wonderful malt profile. Fairly smooth throughout, despite its claim of being aggressive. Pretty lavorful, nice feel.

Pours clear golden amber with a fat and foamy off white head that has staying power. Aroma is fruity citrus hop with just a touch of fresh pine. Taste is balls to the wall citrus from sweeter pineapple to lasting bitter grapefruit. Piney bitter hop close. This is a great IPA.

Dourada translúcida, espuma amarelada de ótima formação e boa persistência. Aroma mais forte de frutas amarelas maduras, abacaxi, lúpulo cavalar, resinosa. Amargor médio/intenso, médio dulçor. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Final mantém as impressões do aroma com frutas maduras e resina que gruda na língua. Deliciosa.

Orange copper colour with a fast disappearing off white head. Smells very resinous and floral. Very piney IPA, tons of hop flavour and medium bitterness, very punchy, medium bodied and oily. Hop flavour for miles, this is a VERY good IPA!

From 12 oz bottle. Served in curved pint glass. Clear golden color with a thin white head. Very little lacing. A good solid pine like aroma. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Solid notes of pine and citrus. Light to medium bodied beer. Average carbonation. Over all a very tasty and enjoyable IPA. Beer is well balanced between sweet and bitter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very good super piney and chewy IPA. Maybe a tad overhyped or it was, but definitely worth a shot for the
Hop crazed individual. Bitterness well balanced with minimal sweetness. Solid!!!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Falling Rock Tap House. Clear bronze appearance with active carbonation and a fluffy beige head with excellent retention, eventually lacing the glass. Aroma of piney hops, floral notes, citrus zest and light hop resin. Similar flavor, adding medium to heavy bitterness. Medium body with a light dry feel and a lingering hop finish. Good, but not great.
