Well they tweaked the recipe on this I IOS and they nailed it.. Golden yellow wit 1.5 inches of frothy white head.. Nice lacing in the glass, grassy and citrus hops on the nose. Lovely hop profile, crisp and clean. Pine and pithy citrus not sweet at all as previously described, but a sturdy malt backbone that doesn't take away from the hops. I think the new abv is 10%, which is probably better given the negative marks for sweetness. This was very drinkable and downright good.

Total hop-bomb, which is nice sometimes. This was a nice departure from overly malty imperial IPAs. Poured cloudy orange-brown with a 2.5" airy head.

I don't know what is going on with this beer as the previous review said it was under-carbonated, and mine, properly chilled, was the most carbonated beer I've ever had in a bottle (not a positive).

A: Poured a ruddy orangish color with low carbonation presenting a small white ring that dissipated rather quickly

S: Muddied citrus and flowers on the nose back with a managable wallop of booze

T: My first I felt this beer was muddy, way off on balance, it seemed sysrupy with hops being lost in the mix. The booze was noticable but the 12% was not detected. Had a subtle bitterness on the end with a light fruit and resin

M: Was big, heavy and a bit sticky. The beer was very heavy due to some low carbonation for the style.

O: A noble attempt but I felt the beer was a bit muddy, to hot and unappealing
