Purchased at: Canal’s Burlington, NJ for $2.78 Thanks, Mike!
Aroma: citrus, sweetness, and hash resin
Visuals: simple but effective packaging, a deep sunset with rain coming, clear, red, orange, and pinks, sediment pour brings particles, off white yellowish head, sticky lace.
Taste: very well balanced, approaches cloying, sweet, bitter, sour, Simcoe and cascade hops, delicious.
Palate: Bright, then very dull and rounded. All about the citrus burn and hop bitterness.
Overall: One of my favorite IPAs despite the overt sweetness. Well layered, well done.

Visuals: wacky label, sunset at harvest, pale, orange, brilliant at first pour, hazy after, wispy head stays, loose lace.
Taste: unbalanced, corn, barley, rice, little hops, subtle, delicious.
Palate: silky, smooth, tea, light, crisp finish.
Overall: A very nice light saison. I’ve had it a few times now, and I enjoy it. I prefer stronger brews, but this is a nice, lighter session brew. Unbelievable value for the price.

Aroma: nice, wonderful, permeating, oak, liquor, tannins, rose, whiskey. 10 out of 10.
Visuals: medium high design, black, oily, thick tan head, great, sticky lace. 5 out of 5.
Taste: expertly balanced, heavy malt, heavy hops, heavy strength, heavy craft. 10 out of 10.
Palate: high quality, sandy texture, long chocolate finish. 5 out of 5.
Overall: It’s almost a crime for me to have beer this good for this price. This is a fantastic, affordable, high quality treat, I’ll have it again for sure, a new favorite, high value, expertly crafted. About the only thing I don’t like about the whole experience is the cheesy graphic on the label. 20 out of 20.
