2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Copper-amber pour leading up to a tremendous off-white head that lingers and laced. That is its best feature. The nose is of caramel malts and an earthy hop character but for the type of American IPA I am used to, the hop character is far more muted and laid back. Smooth, medium body. Caramel roasted malts kick in on the first sip with the mild hop bitterness playing up on the end. But there is nothing dramatic about it. Balanced? Yes. But not overwhelming.

Mellow hops aroma. Caramel in color. Lots of tiny bubbles, almost like foam, forms in your mouth on the swig. Slightly bitter then then warms up to a sweet taste that calms on the palate. Very easy drinking IPA

This one pours a nice golden color. Notes of citrus, pine, and sweetness on the nose; follow onto the palate. This is a little sweeter than most IPAs I’ve had, but not in a bad way. It works for this beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a dark amber. Good amount of off white head that lasts. Aroma is caramel malts, honey and grass. Not much hop aroma. Taste is caramel malts, some grass and pine. Mild bitterness. Palate is medium body, medium carbonation. Not a bad beer, just not very hoppy for an IPA.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear brilliant amber with a foamy pillowy off-ivory head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy candy like, with some grapefruity zest and orange pulp, a touch of slightly vegetal pine, leads of caramel, and a earthy floral resin. Lovely smelling IPA. Unfortunately the taste falls a bit short. Nothing bad, just kinda ’meh’ with an odd creaminess at the start. Has some pine and floral resin with a bit of malty caramel and grapefruity undertones, but it’s just got this weird lightness about it I can’t explain. Pity.
