3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer pours a hazy dark orange with a medium off-white head that fades slowly. The aroma has a strong caramel malt backbone, but there is an undeniable amount of floral, spruce, and resin hops. The taste is slightly bitter, slightly sour, and a touch sweet with a finish that has some grassy flavor to it. The palate has a sticky texture, medium-full body, and a soft carbonation, bit these elements don’t really work together.

2/5 Finley Dunnes Draft - 2/5 - Draft at Finley Dunnes (Chicago Lakeview). 3 Sheeps has been served at Finley Dunnes the past few months, and I am really glad it’s a standard serving. The beer is very smooth and refreshing to drink. Loved the somewhat bitter taste.
I look forward to finding other 3 Sheep offerings down the road, and will continue to order this IPA when available.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle pours a hazy golden/orange with small white head but good lacing. Aroma has lots of tropical fruitand some dankness. The caramel mats make this one taste sweet until a dry, almost dank finish. Body is medium without too much carbonation. A decent, if slightly different IPA I’m glad to have tried,

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Pours a hazy amber hue with an off-white creamy head. Aroma of caramel, piney, some orangey citrus, sweet malts. Taste of caramel, orange, sweet malts, hint of vanilla, and earthy tones. Finish is a dry bitterness. Not a good IPA in my mind. Too malty, too bitter, not balanced enough.

Picked up at Woodman’s in Madison WI. Aroma of bread, resin and decaying wet wood. Amber orange haziness in color with a white head. The taste comes off as medium sweet and slightly hoppy with a creamy after taste. Overall, a surprisingly good IPA from a Wisconsin brewery.
