3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brew Free pours a hazy honey colored liquid with a half inch head of big bubbles. Nose is dominated by pine and slightly floral esters. Big hoppy hit on the front of the taste that has both a fruity and floral character. The taste finishes with a lingering tantalizing bitters. Body is lively but not overly fizzy and generally fluid. Very nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can at home. Hazy golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops, tropical fruits, lychee and somewhat floral. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity and very refreshing. Nice brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 oz can with a best by date of 11/11/2016.
Aroma is hop forward with a lot of grapefruit, pine resin, and dank notes. Medium malt notes with cracker, toasted bread and some lighter caramel. A hint of alcohol.
Pours a fairly clear, pale, golden orange with a medium sized, thick, white head that slowly recedes to a thin film that lingers. Moderate lacing and no legs.
Flavor has a moderate sweetness with cracker, toasted bread and some light caramel malt notes. Medium high bitterness and a hint of alcohol spice with a fairly dry finish. Medium strong hop notes with a definite woodiness, but also some grapefruit and pine resin. Hints of other citrus and fruit.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low, but present alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty boring IPA. Too malty and the hop profile is old fashioned and woody as opposed to fruity and tropical. It is a clean beer though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citrus pine mix of hop arona. Good blend. Medium high in strength. Clear gold with a white cap of head. A bit sweet, with I think crystal malt bringing the sweetness. Pretty thun body but bubbly.

Can poured into tulip. Very little head but great lacing. A bit malty for an IPA. Some citrus notes, but not overpowering. Slight aftertaste. Decent and not a typical IPA. Cool can as well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can. Honey gold color topped by a large rocky white head. Aromatic piney hop nose. Toasted malt and spicy hops. Typical west coast IPA. Spicy hops balanced by a crisp, nutty, toasted maltiness. Overall, easy to drink with a solid malty backbone. Spicy hops are there for the taking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kind of a strange IPA. Bright citrus, a little pineapple. Dry, thinnish, a lot of grassy bitterness at the finish.
