Pours medium amber that leans more towards a green color and cloudier than the Hopalicious. It's an okay IPA but the flavors are muddled.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a cloudy orange with a huge white head. Aroma is a nice fresh pine hops with some sweet caramel malt sweetness. I can already see where this one is going. Flavor is not as malt I as I was thinking it would be. Still Hops are here with a very minor presence. More sweet malt is felt after the swallow. I think I am officially IPA burnt out. I can barley get a hop presence from the recent beers I’ve had. Way more malt is showing up in these beers.

Tap at brewery. Pours clear orange with white head. Aroma is piney, lots of sweet malts, caramel, very fresh bread. Taste is malt forward, not hop aggressive, very mellow for an IPA. Overall, okay but wish it was a bit bolder.

"pine resin and earth mixed in the aroma and flavor. not my favorite type of malts for this beer, but is was a decent refreshing ipa. light-medium bodied. amarillo hops are nice, but this is a one trick pony - a session ipa. trade from WI beer mafia!"
