3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The pour was a golden straw orange with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that was mostly lasting, finally reducing to a few puddles and a medium collar with some excellent sticky spotty lacing.
The aroma was of floral and citrus hops, grain malts and a sweet yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a quite noticeable sweet fruity ester.
The taste was a little bitter-sweet with a hint of caramel and had a mild fruitiness from the onset, and then became quite a bit bitterer and nice and hoppy with a definite citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted a very long time proceeding the swallow with a hoppy bitter taste that was left to linger for quite a while longer.
Mouthfeel was a few shades beyond light in body and was dry in texture with a moderate carbonation.
Overall an extremely well balanced IPA, slightly fruity at the start and pleasurably bitter towards the end with a great drinkability...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful golden color with a fine head and lacing. A very hoppy but not overpowering nose of grass, citrus, some floral notes and a little bready, biscuit malt notes. A round and smooth palate but with some fall off in the finish and with attenuation and a bit of bitterness. Nice beer, a bit unbalanced in the mouth.

Hoppy nose, some piney/ammonia scent. Crisp palate, with citrus notes. Bold, with a lot of bounce to the ounce.

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.
