3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A typical American IPA. Ok brew.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Dark golden body topped by a small off-white head
In long: A medium intensity nose of leafy, citrusy and grassy hops. Taste has typical toasted caramelized malts followed by a citrusy, pine-needles and leafy hops. Bitterness level is medium. I’ve had IPAs just like this one a hundred times. Nothing memorable but pleasant to drink nonetheless. Better than I expected after walking in that awful awful place that is Abbey Wright. This place is a watering hole for a new generation of rednecks. I bet most guys there met their girlfriends after reading a message on the walls of the men’s bathroom.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Gummy, juicy, and sticky. Fragrant. Copper. Sticky, a bit sweet, but lots of bitterness. Tangy. Good hop cone character. A little sweet, but otherwise rounded and solid. This had really awesome hop flavor, but the sugars kind of overwhelm somehow and I can’t dig that.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Valley Inn. Body is a medium/dark amber with a creamy head. Wonderful hops aromas of citrus and pine are a highlight. Flavor is a little thin on malt but very good with a nice grapefruit finish with a piney edge.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, at brewpub. Pours a hazy copper with a small off-white foamy head. Lots of green citric and piney hops in the nose with a little caramel maltiness after it warmed up some. Rather harshly bitter up front, but as it warmed it did get a little smoother. Very leafy and raw. Toasted and light caramel malt on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a sticky resiny hop finish. Moderate soft carbonation. Overall, a little on the harsher side with the hoppiness, this could benefit from a better more subtle mix of hops.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at brewery and then again at ABC 11th Capital City Brew fest. Poured a cloudy orangeish gold in color with a nice medium sized head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, and light caramel. Tastes of piney, grapefruit and citrus hops balanced well against caramel malt. Nice mouth feel and body.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at Pints for Pets. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small foamy white head and a little bit of lacing. The aroma is a strong citrus grapefruit hops flavor. A little caramel in there to balance it out as well. The flavor is simply outstanding. Lot so juicy grapefruit. A little light on the body, but it is a really tasty IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours cloudy copper with big sticky ivory head. The aroma is intense tangerine and pine, much like green pine needles, with a little bit of honey. The flavor is delicious sappy pine with a little bit of tangerine. The malt resembles Ritz crackers with a slight sweetness. Dry finish. Pretty impressive brew.
