2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Amber body, minimal head. Aroma is minimal, slightly earthy. Taste is earthy hops, spiked by some skunkiness. Medium body. Attempts an English-style IPA, but definitely falls short.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber color, white head. Aroma of earthy hops, light fruit. Well-balanced flavor (slightly bitter) of malt and hops, tastes like a mix of US and UK hops. Medium full mouthfeel. Not as hoppy as some other American versions, but pretty damn good.

Had this on tap while celebrating at the converted “Varsity Club” prior to the Fiesta Bowl in Tempe - GO BUCKS!! Interesting nose of grapefruit and smoke. This brew is a light amber with a white creamy head. The flavor is bitter and robust with moderate acidity. The medium creamy body is lively and smooth and finishes clean and dry. Like my Buckeyes this brew is a winner!
