3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Rather light gold in color with a whitish head. Thin for an IPA, slightly bitter, earthy, woody, grass flavors. Some crispness and punch in the finish, but it falls a bit short.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, shared by robotopera. Date notched is 1/12. Hazy amber color. Good citrus hops, caramel malts. Little off-white head leaves subtle, mellow flavor, but itís good and drinkable. Lighter carbonation, clean finish. Alicia calls it "watery". Light bitter. Light pine, grapefruit. Would revisit with a fresher sample.

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 IPAís I have tried.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
