4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE: June 1, 2017... OCCASION: Prepping for Game One with a beer that promises something old and something new--the Cavs embody this concept... GLASSWARE: La Fin du Monde tulip... pours a crystal-clear golden body with a flurry of oversized bubbles that build a three-finger clump of snow-white head, craggy with giant bubbles clinging to the glass... the first whiff of India escaped the can the second I cracked it; the second immediately upon pouring it... robust resin, knotty pine, toasted malts, light orange/lemon citrus, and light pepper make for quite a prolific expectation... first sip is vibrant as the effervescence portended, with an escaping tooth-rattle and a slippery malt finish... although a West Coast attempt is the aim, this still holds some East Coast bias as well...dry and light-bodied, belying its 6.0% ABV... thick clusters of bubbles linger as the glass drains... as promised, Mosaic and Simcoe burst with resin and pine, with tropical flavors of mango, grapefruit, orange peel and lemon--the full array in balance, while enough bread malts keep the beer from being a hop bomb... each sip simmers with a pleasantly light buzz... if this is how the Cavs play the series, I like their chances... as the fifth beer rated from the Overpackd case, this is up there with 2XSmash...

Light yellow color, nose of tropical fruits. Slight bittet taste with an almost pale character. Slight bitter picks up on finish. Smooth and easy drinking. NYbeerfan (21) - Binghamton, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2018
Incredible, one of the better IPA's i've had, hence the score. Aromatic , great odor, delicious crisp taste. Growler from Hopsy. GregM05 (23) - - JAN 21, 2018
Hop hop hop away. Good tasting, more than welcomed aroma. Enjoyable on a nice chill night; or when getting a buzz lightyear.

Very nice IPA in a 12oz canned variety pack. The beer poured a light golden color with a fluffy, white head. The head left some sticky lacing around the glass. The nose, as well as the flavors, were very woody and spicy. The finish left a bit of spiky, hop-resin-like flavor with notes of pine and grapefruit. berkshirejohn (6813) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2018
12oz bottle from Wegman's, West Seneca. A slightly hazy amber pour with a thin white head; fresh tropical fruit aroma; sweet fruity taste that fills the mouth with pineapple and mango and has a nicely offset bitterness; followed by a sweet fruity malt finish. Rather good. JoeMcPhee (10187) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2018
Very bright spicy tropical aroma. Soft juiciness and a bit of light pepper and some nice fruitiness with a bit of zest and some grapefruit and kiwi. There's almost a noble quality on the back. Has a bit of stone fruit and some light grassiness. Really bright, pleasant beer.
