3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark golden color. Nose consists of hops and canned pears. Strong hoppy flavor, kind of sharp and bitter at times. Not extremely well rounded. Does have some good hop flavor going on. Finish is quite bitter.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly cloudy and w/ a pale orange color. Little or no head with somewhat big bubbles. Nice nose of apricot, slight citrus, and some pine. Palate is not bad with a hoppy bitter finish, though the flavors don’t seem fully developed. Some nice pine, and apricot, very fresh flavors. Not bad but not the most exciting IPA

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear deep golden body, moderate carbonation, and soft, frothy white head that left significant lace. Cheesy-citrus hop and butterscotch maltiness in the nose. Flavor is metallic and resinous. Spicy hop quality dominates the flavor and doesn’t allow any malt or yeast character to come through. Another underwhelming Acme beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. CLear and golden, nice white head that lasts. Citrus fresh hop aroma, and lots of fruit. Mostly hop flavor, lots of bitterness. Malt is down there somewhere, with a touch of sweetness. Overall, will help with a hop fix, but a rather simple brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice little IPA. Hard to believe it’s a 7.1 A good beer for that change of pace. [Worst review ever.]

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bit of candi sugar, lots of grapefruit and grass in the nose. Flavor is sweet citrusy with a malty backbone. Dry, hoppy finish. Nice creamy body

deep golden color, thick frothy beige head, aroma is mostly citrus hops, flavor is moderately hopped, lightly malted...what a poorly written rating.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours cloudy tan with no head. Lighter look than most IPAs. Taste is earthy with average hops. Looks almost like a hefeweizen. Average.

Loved the light fruity aroma of this Ale. Nice and dry also. I did not notice the extra kick associated with 7.1 beers.
