3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at brew pub near hotel. Darker golden nice white head. Nice aroma pine and malt. Nice body very drinkable. Hops are there but balanced well with the malt. Best part about this is its free because no liquor license yet so 2 free with a meal.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours from the growler an orange tea hue with a wispy head that fully diminishes. Floral nose. Nice bitters throughout, with tannins and biscuit flour and pale malt accents. Lingering crisp biscuit flour and back-palate bitters to finish. Medium body that drinks smoothly with semi-active carbonation. Decent, yet middle-of-the-road in the complexity department. Nice 4th of July offering.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid, straightforward IPA. A nice blend of citrus and floral in the hop aroma and flavor, with a slightly sweet malt component. I bit a soapy taste comes through, but that is a byproduct of IPAs sometimes.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma has ligt citrus and tea. Flavor has mild citrus and earthy notes...fairly bitter. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is resinous/earthy/piney and dry. A bit boring.

My favorite of the beers in the ABC sampler. More east coast than west, but still a decent IPA. Good amber/orange color, pleasant pine hop aroma, and a nice sweet-then-bitter finish.
