2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Hazed and fairly deep golden. This has some fruit and malt notes. Nothing here works well together and the hops are more sour than tart or flavorful.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can - big foamy head, light copper color, fair piney hop aroma and flavor with a decent malt balance - not the strongest IPA, but not bad, kind of a sessionable IPA

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the 12 fl. oz. can stamped 1062-1523. The pour is an incredibly heady cloudy copper yellow. The head eventually dies down. The aroma is rather thin but I do get some grainy and hop characters. The body is smooth and light. The taste is also grainy with an explosive hopped bitterness coming up on the tail end. But the overall experience was that it was milder than some IPA’s I have tried.

Copper orange gold pour. Very crisp but mellow hop with pale malt aromas. Beer is dry and simple. Not really bad in anyway. But is certainly lacking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A decent IPA, but nothing much to this guy. Seems like the staple run of the mill IPA every brewery has.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a bottle. Very bitter yet somewhat fruity hop experience. That bitter hop thing really leaves a bitter linger all over the back of yer throat, quite nasty but certainly on style. Has a thin rocky head. Yes, it does have some cutting co2 which makes it almost acceptable to a lager lover but don’t be fooled, this is a very bitter hoppy beer with lots of personality.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky amber with a quickly dissipating taupe topper and patchy lacing. Aroma of grains, floral hops, light caramel and vegetal notes. Taste is floral and vegetal with caramel and light bitterness. Ho-hum.
