3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, poured into a sampler at the American Beer Classic. The aroma is a bright, floral citrus blossom with undertones of bread. There’s a light haze to the amber orange beer that’s topped by a soap white head that has moderate retention and lace. The taste is a medium bitter and medium sweet, slightly off balanced. It’s waxy with a soft fuzz and a medium body containing notes of bread crust, caramel, and grapefruit rind and finishes crisp with a fresh zip. The aftertaste is lingering, bitter wax with an herb and burnt note.

Bright cloudy Orange pour. White head. Fruity. One of the better Abitas I have had. Had this poured in small glass from draft at the American Beer Classic 2015.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
New beer Distributors, NYC bottle ($2.25): Pours light orange with a white head. Aroma is lemon and hints of caramel malts. Seems to me that the aroma actually degenerates as the beer sits. Taste is lemony. It be very mildly bitter. A hint spicy. Not very exciting, but refreshing enough.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a clear golden/orange. Aroma was nothing but malt bomb. Flavor followed the nose. This was labeled as fresh through June I believe. Is it supposed to be a malt bomb? Drank this thinking it was going to be a crisp and citrusy IPA, but was very disappointed. Light body with a thin texture. Carbonation was fizzy. Little bitter to end. Couldn’t drink it all though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and dryish flavor, faint caramel and some tropical fruitiness with piney - herbal hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dryish, light tropical fruitiness with lots of piney - herbal hoppyness. Nice dryish and well hopped light bodied IPA – not too much caramel.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle...pours orange with a white head. The aroma is butterscotch and grapefruit. It has a medium frothy body with soft carbonation. The flavor starts with metallic notes and an astringent backbone. The finish is a bitter medicinal palate. Not a good effort by a normaly solid brewery.
