4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great aroma, smooth appearance with a orange tint, naturally found in I.P.A’s. of course it has a great aftertaste, no lingering overbite. A great brew with a slight bite to it..
12floz bottle, BBD: 08.21.2017, ~$1.75 unit price. Appears amber in color with one-finger of head in my nonic glass. Smells like candy - caramel and some cherry-berry (my terminology). There is not much to critique here, this is just a solid malty IPA - pine and caramel blend together very well over a fullish medium-body. ciocanelu (2598) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 15, 2017
Slightly hazy amber color with light beige head. Aroma has overripe orange, dried orange rind and caramel malt. Taste has caramel and nutty malts with an orange peel bitterness growing towards the finish and lingering with resiny hop flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it’s a well made, classic IPA. cwill (97) - Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Hazy dark orange pour with a thick creamy head that leaves a ton of lacing. Aromas of pine and sweet citrus, grapefruit hops and spice. The taste is intense following the nose with a hint of piney, grass bitterness, spice and a sweet malty backbone that still takes a backseat to the hops. Silky smooth and creamy mouth feel. Beer is wonderfully balanced. I love to sip and savor this one. Absolutely a world class IPA in my book.

Sötét borostyán szín, közepes, nem tartós fehér hab. Mézes, komlós illat. Közepesen keserű komlós íz, némi karamellizált cukorral ízesítve. Ízlett, de nem nőtt túl az átlagos ipa sörökön. CanCrusher (1082) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JUL 30, 2017
Bottle 0,355L. Clear, copper color with small, fothy, off-white head. Herbal and piney aroma in front, touch of fruits and malty aroma in the background. Light to medium bitter at the start with caramel malts taste. Finish is heavy bitter and long lasting. Medium body, dry texture & soft carbonation. My expectations were slightly bigger... frothysuds (14) - Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2017
Bottle. Clear golden color With medium creamy White mostly lastning head. Hoppy aroma. Sweet and bitter flavor. Creamy palate IslandHaole (1274) - Misawa, JAPAN - JUN 15, 2017
Clear Ruby-orange colored beer with a creamy beige head that quickly fades. Layers of sweet malts, caramel, floral & pine hops with hints of oak barrel. Sweet up front, chewy candy like a fruit infused taffy quickly followed by the bitter hops, seems to become even more hoppy and bitter in the follow. Nicely done! Good feel and the alcohol is well-masked with just a mild warming in the finish. Dangerously drinkable. NateH10s (72) - Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2017
