3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Riley’s World of Wines in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden straw colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of Ivory soap, some floral hops and a touch of corn. Taste is light bodied, some dry hop bitterness with flavors of grassy hops, light corn and golden grain malt. Finish is semi-dry, some fingerprint grassy hop aftertaste and dry hop bitterness. Closer to a sessional IPA than a regular IPA.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Slightly orange pour with a hint of cloudiness. Citrus, pepper, and biscuits. Orange peels, pepper, and hops on the palate. Finish is bitter of hops and orange peel. it tries, it really tries to be good. It just doesn’t pull it off. Bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear, medium orange with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up orange and peppery notes over biscuity malt. The flavor found tangy black pepper and citrus upfront, with pale and bready malts behind.. long, spicy finish. Light-medium bodied and a touch sharp at times.. for the most part enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Very slightly hazy gold pour with a small soapy white head. Strange beer. Cream ale elements, slightly sweet, with some hop bite over the top. Hmmm - not really my thing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, kinda annoyed they don’t have these in a mix six and I had to buy a full sixer of this stuff, pours a clear dark gold with a thick bubbly white head, aroma is more sweet than anything, slight fruit, and I mean slight, flavor has a sweet front end with just a touch of hops in the finish, grain is through out, honestly, this is like spotted cow with a little extra hops thrown in, why, just why.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty good mix of the IPA and cream ale. Not like many I’ve ever drank before. Would recommend to IPA or ale drinkers.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Filtered yellow-orange body. Foamy, steady white head. Cream corn, cream ale tones are quite prevalent, but it is firmly rooted in IPA, albeit a rather weak one. This is actually a decent Cream Ale, the hops actually give it a little balance, but also detract from the sublime sensibilities of the style. Not so bad, but kind of an awkward non-balance.
