3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is a clear amber with medium white head. Aroma is a more sweet hop. Taste is certainly bitter, but hidden underneath a sweet earthy hop. Overall a well balanced IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at Barcade, St Marks, Manhattan. Light gold with a small white head and lots of lacing. Pine and ammonia in the nose. The astringent notes in the aroma are replicated, even amplified, in the taste... although there are also some lingering bitter hop notes. Long bitter finish. Refreshing crisp palate. It’s ok but too weird and messy, I wouldn’t have it again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a can. Crystal clear amber with small white head, good lacing. Aroma is hop forward, crisp citrus, orange, peach, over a mild hint of caramel malt. Taste is similar, nice juicy citrus with a quick resinous bitterness with a pleasant linger, finish of sweet peach. Medium body, good carbonation. One sip needs leads to a quick second.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unexpected bottle thanks to beastiefan2k. Lovely crystal clear amber pour with dense creamy white head. Aroma is surprisingly floral right off the bat, and rounds out with pine and caramel. Malt backdrop brings very little sweetness and plays a supporting role to assertively bitter finish. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, oily texture.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours crystal clear, amber colored body, capped by a tall off-white head. Aroma is slightly sweet, yeasty, with earthy hops. Taste is hop forward, citrus, some orange peel was noticeable. Good dose of sweetness as well. On the back end, the hops turned sharp and quite bitter. Super oily and resinous. The bitterness came through even more in the finish. Uber pithy and piney with an astringency that was off the charts. The mouth feel was light and frothy.
