3.59/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Orange gold in color with a nice head that dissipated through the glass. very little lacing through the glass but

S: not sure if it was my sinuses but didn't get a super strong smell from the glass but did have hops and a hit of malt in the end smell. does smell good

T: while cold i had a strong hops flavor that evens out with malt as the beer warms the malts have a sweet bready taste leaving the hops to end on the finish of the beer over all taste is good but i honestly expected more hops

M: more carbonation than i expected that dissipates in the mouth. Carbonation takes away from the beginning flavor but in the middle the malts tend to pop through leaving a good hoppy flavor on the end.

O: Overall a good beer. okay hoppiness, and a nice balance of malt and bread notes. Like i said for an IPA i expected more hops but still was not disappointed. . Overall good and i would suggest trying it especially since its a seasonal brew

3.66/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured an amber orange with a one finger white head that dissipated slowly into a thin ring with light lacing.

Aroma was weak and I could barely pickup hints of citrus and light malt.

Taste of citrus, pine, a light bready malt with a slight hop bite.

Mouth Feel was medium body, moderate carbonation which creates a fizzy feel at the beginning and settles into a smooth and slightly bitter finish.

Overall this is a good beer, well balanced, however, i a little more hop presence would make this a much better IPA.

4.13/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Serving Type -22oz caged and corked bottle.

Appearance - Dark ruby tan, amber, with a 1 inch foamy, creamy head. Lots of sticky lacing.

Smell - Light citric hops, some sugars, oranges, lemons, pineapple and grapefruit. Some caramel malts in the finish. Not a real strong aroma coming from this bottle.

Taste - Really dank, citric hop bite that's mixed with caramel malts. Near the swallow huge bitter grapefruit hops take over. Loads of lemon and pineapple. Some added sugars along with multiple styles of hops come out in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Some hops and malts coat the tongue. Strong bitter hops nail the palate and leave the tongue bittered. The aftertaste is bitter, citric and dry.

Overall - Interesting beer. Seems like you get some hops at first sip, then different kind of hops come in near the swallow, creating two beers in one. The story behind this being made with people around the community growing there own hops makes this a wonderful beer, and it has a nice big hop bite that's really enjoyable for hopheads. Another winner from hardywood.
