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.

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 ’light’ 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 isn’t too sweet which is nice. It also isn’t 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.
