Homer321 (4442) - Melboring, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Strong caramel and grass in the nose. Light toffee, almost butter. Does not make me want to drink. Lightly hazy. Nose gets worse with warming. Skunky. Taste isn’t anywhere near an IPA. Sweet. Caramel. Gross. No bitterness. Drainpour.

Poured a clear topaz color with a small amount of bubbly head. The smell is all dank hops, juicy citrus, pine, and a slight bit of malt. The flavor follows suit as you get tons of grapefruit, tangerine, and floral bitterness before the bready finish. Always enjoy a good harvest IPA.

Bulk_Carrier (4202) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - OCT 8, 2016
This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a golden burnt yellow color with a quickly dissipating finger’s worth of white foamy head. Solid sticky lace. The aroma starts with citrus hoppy oils and tropical fruity sweetness. Super underscore of malts. The flavor brings the hoppy bitter oils to cross the tropical sticky fruitiness to blend nicely together and slide into the aftertaste and right on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable hop slick feel to it. The oiliness from the hops really impart a nice wet feel to it. Overall, now that’s a really nice fresh wet hopped AIPA
