Bottle: Poured a bright yellow/orangey color ale with a nice thick white foamy head with good retention and some great lacing. Aroma of citrus notes is quite nice with some residual sugar notes noticeable. Taste is also dominated by citrus notes with fresh floral notes that are somewhat offset by too much residual sugar. Body is about average for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Nice IIPA but I would say that there is too much residual sugar for my own personal taste.

Maybe I have a super old bottle (no date) but this is awful. Almost no hop presence whatsoever, just an attack of malt sweetness. Almost felt like like I was drinking a barley wine or something. Terrible representation of the style in my opinion. I will give this a shot however if I can find a bottle with a fresh date on it.

Pours a amber color with a thick head. A smooth IPA that is dry-hopped and it's named incorrectly. I didn't find too much of an outburst, but hoppy enough to make it an IPA. The good news for me is 8.3 on the richter scale and that means a few will do.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Amber colour, 2 fingers of white head, good lace. Smell is citrusy hops and sweet caramel, some toasted bread, fuzzy peaches and orange slices, malt is pretty big on the nose. Taste is bitter upfront, hoppy with an equal amount of malt, sweet up front but drying in the finish, muddy citrus. Light carbonation, medium body. Pretty average stuff, nothing I dont think I would revisit though.
