3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours an apricot color. The head is a fluffy one finger off-white shade. All in all, the looks are typical for the style: frothy head, okay retention, and plenty of lacing left behind.
S: Aromatically, hops do jump out from the glass - mainly the floral, lemony variety. Sourdough bread seems to make an appearance, too. I’ve grown to point where I can smell Centennial hops from a mile away, and this brew’s got ’em.
T: Flavor-wise, it’s sweeter than what the aroma let on. I was waiting for the bitterness to prick the tongue...and instead I got a sweet, caramel forward brew where the hops are only there to balance instead of being showcased. Late in the aftertaste, some floral and spicy hop notes do appear. Aside from the typical caramel and toffee notes, it’s also a bit earthy.
M: It’s a rather clean brew, which at least helps quash some of the sweetness well. It glides down the tongue with a crisp bite, too I’d almost call it thirst quenching...no, I will call it thirst quenching. Not dry by any stretch, but it does a good job of going down easily anyways. The sweet finish doesn’t bother me at all.
O: I’ll give it one thing - it’s drinkable. Very drinkable, even for a 7.3% IPA. It just doesn’t have the most interesting flavor is all. If I had bought a 6 pack of this (which I didn’t) I wouldn’t have any trouble killing it.
12 oz can. Pours an opaque dark golden color. Aroma of fresh cut grass, citrus, hint of spruce. Flavor of citrus, mango, grass. A lot of different hops, a lot of different flavors. Nice combination. Dockurty (17) - Indiana, USA - JUL 4, 2017
2017 rating scale. A remarkable release. Hopefully going to find its way to Fort Wayne

Draught. Golden color with small frothy white head, malty aroma with faint citrus, medium carbonation, piney bitter taste with citrus flavor, thin body, long bitter finisg. A classical American IPA. voyageurmike (435) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Bottle at the Parish. The name of this brew is an exaggeration, but it is drinkable. Dark gold, some citrus in the aroma. Medium body, uncomplicated piney taste, mild bitter and malty finish. Larry_Duffman (535) - - APR 28, 2017
I poured it from the can into a glass. It pours hazy amber with a fluffy, white head. The aroma is piny hops and bread. The taste is piny hops, mango, grapefruit, and bread. It’s chewy at first. It fades into a nice carbonation. This is really tasty and enjoyable.

orange gold aroma funky pinapple. some dank. tastes dank generic industrial hops. slight creamy. theprof (943) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2017
Tap. Aroma pale malts and hop fruits. Pours bright amber, slightly hazy with broken white lacing from a thin top. Taste is predominantly hoppy. My guess would be the Centennial outshines the others. Medium carbonation. The sweet start folds into a lasting bitter finish. A beer to have before that last cigar, the blindfold, and the order Fire. JTParis (23) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2017
@Lexington, Kentucky. There was potential to be much more than the brew ended up being. coachd (834) - Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2017
Sweet malty aroma with fresh piney hops backing it up. Dark golden color with a huge tuft of white foam. Very hoppy flavor, the variety of hops makes it a bit muddled; I would have liked one or a few of the hop varieties given a chance to shine. Some of the malt sweetness comes through in the aftertaste. Still good, just a little too busy. Great palate. It coats the mouth with just a hint of carbonation. This was good not great.

Just seemed to have to many hop flavors going on once. Drinkable but not my favorite.
