3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dark orange amber with a way big rocky head that never quits, fluffs of lace. Taste is bright sweet caramel malt that grows through the palate, adding a toast flavor. At the finish, distinctive floral hops arrive, but not nearly enough to call this an IPA. Quite good as a Pale Ale, and good enough to have more than one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle - pours hazy pale amber with off white head and thin lacing. Nose is pine, citrus andante thinner. Flavor adds caramel. Bitter. Refreshing though there is funky aftertaste. Light to medium body. I’m starting to wonder if this brewery is subpar.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 12 oz bottle This ale poured with huge white head. The head overwhelmed the glass. The IPA poured a deep amber color with lacing down the glass. The aroma had some citrus, malt and some light spice. The body was medium with average carbonation. The taste had caramel malt with some mild bitterness. This IPA has a nice citrus bitterness that is very balanced with the malts. The finish had more malt than hop presence. Had another from a bottle. The head was normal and the color was a clear amber. It has the bitterness of an IPA but needs more fullness on the tongue.

Big disappointment here. No head. Muted hops. Looks burnt orange. Funky malt flavor. I expect better.

Wow. IPA? Really? Smelled this and had suspicion it would suck. And it did. Cloudy orange pour from bottle. Hints of apricot and ass

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle - Pours lightly hazy copper with a one finger head. It has a mild aroma of caramel and grainy malt with a hint of hops that slightly suggests citrus. The flavor is fairly bitter but unfortunately it’s on the watered down side. The bitter hops lack complexity. It’s okay to drink, but there are far better options for IPAs.
