3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: A solid looking amber color. I was working outside so I didnít pay much attention, but I did notice the massive head when I was pouring -- off-white, creamy. I had more head than beer when I first poured... donít be too aggressive with it. Not very much lacing despite the head.
Smell: Quite floral. Malty. Somewhat sweet. Nothing too memorable, but it definitely smells like an IPA.
Taste: Floral hops. Resinous. Somewhat dry. Mildly soapy. Drinks very easily. Itís a pretty ordinary IPA, but itís a fair price, itís local, and thereís nothing bad about it. Itís pretty hoppy on the front, but balanced nicely, so itís not too assertive. I enjoy it.
A respectable beer. My first from Arbor, and itís good enough that Iíd be more than willing to have another or try some of their other brews.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not my favorite IPA, but tasty enough to drink and pass the time. Itís very carbonated almost to the point of being out of place. Aroma or bitterness isnít going to blow anyone away.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at the brewpub and bottle at home. Cloudy; not as crisp and hoppy as the usual IPA, but not in a bad way. Also, smoother and heavier on the palate. Grassy rye finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden color out of the bottle with a small sticky off white head. Nice citrus hop nose. Full flavored, grapefruit and orange rind heavy, IPA. Coarse bread and caramel sweetness under the big hoppy flavors. Nice IPA.
