2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - dark copper color with small soapy head. Aroma - pretty blah for an ipa. Muted resin hops, thats it. Taste - caramel malt up front with metallic tasting hops, not good. Palate - thin soapy mothfeel. Finish is bitter and off taste that lingers. Overall - below average ipa. Tastes more like a APA, not a high quality beer.

Bottled. No clear date. Pours deep honey, white bubbly head. Aroma is sweet malt, sugar, orange, citrus. Flavor is orange, kind of generic ale, slightly bitter, malt. May be old. Or may just not be a very good ipa.

This kinda feels like youíre drinking mouth wash or something. It tastes good, but feels weird...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, bubbly amber with a short light beige head. Aroma has caramel, floral hops, bread, and a light grapefruit. The taste is similar to what the nose offers. It has floral hops, caramel some lemon, with hints of grapefruit still noticeable. There really isnít any bitterness in here. Mild yet lingering lemon aftertaste. Medium in body, average in carbonation. Nothing stands out in the texture, so Iíll call it neutral. Overall, this is drinkable, though rather bland.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle poured amber into a pint glass with a finger of head. Nice aroma of hops. This tasted more malty than hoppy with a touch of an astringent after taste.
No born on date on the bottle to know if it is beyond its time.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Brewsterís, Kalamazoo. A little surprised
Iíve never rated this. Fairly certain Iíve had this somewhere along the line even though itís not available in MN. Hint of Butterscotch/diacetyl in the nose which seeps into the flavor, however, not in a really bad way. Beautiful artistic, sheet lace. Amber body. Nice Bready finish. In some ways this reminds me of Lucid Foto although Foto is better. Had a bells Two Hearted just before this, which is not really fair as there is no comparison.

a pretty standard IPA. Has a bit of a citrus hop taste with some caramel malts blended in.
