3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4th October 2011
Light haze on this gold - amber beer. Little white head. Light palate, crispy and semi dry. Too much pale malt here but decent fresh grapefruit. Semi dry finish. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at MBGWF12. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and complex malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. This soft beer met my expectations.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Blue Dog. Pours hazy canary/straw colored with 1-finger splotchy off-white head. Nose is pretty hoppy, resiny, tannic, with pale malt. Tastes of astringent resiny hops, a bit malt light, with a piney acidic finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Light orange and citrus peel aroma. Golden yellow with giant head. Lemon, stale barley malt and mild orange peel hops flavor. Okay but definitely below the average IPA. Never really considered 5.5% to be ílightí alcohol either.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 bottle, just under 3 months old, hopefully it holds up.
It is rather low in abv for an ipa. It pours a hazy amber with a foamy white head.
The smell is mostly citrus. Orange is a prominent scent. Maybe some peach in there too. Light fruits, subtle malt sweetness.
The flavor is decent. It isnít too sweet which is nice. It also isnít too massively hopped. With .5% less abv it does have a better flavor than Founders All Day IPA. It is not too sweet, but still nectary. Plenty of fruits and citru, medium to low bitterness in the finish.
It looks like the cans are brewed at Latrobe. The bottled version is fine, it looks like the canned version has some issues.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. The thing exploded and half the bottle went on the counter. Very airy and full-bodied amber-colored brew. Pretty pedestrian aroma, really ... an "average" smelling beer. Drinks with a hint of citrus, but not much. Iíd write this down as a pretty standard American ale. (#5279, 10/6/2013)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle this poured a clear copper body with an off-white head that quickly devolved into a film. The aroma light citrusy hops, dust, and some sweet grain. The hops gave more flavor than bite, again light and citrusy. The malt tasted of toffee and an off-putting butterscotch. It ended on a mildly bitter note. Once was enough.
