3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear copper. Aroma is pine and caramel malts. Caramel malt backbone, with a good blend of bittering hops. Mostly pine and slight citrus from the hops. Pretty run of the mill IPA, but good nonetheless. Could be more bitter, but Its a good starter IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark amber, with minimal head. Aroma has a lot of bread and roasted grain, some hops. Flavor is very bready, too, almost too much so. The grains and breadiness are really given the spotlight here, to the detriment of the hops, and the beer. There are some citrus and spruce flavors, but too little to my taste.

Bottle poured into a shaker; pours a nice shade of copper with a small sudsy head and no real carbonation; a little malt to the nose...but not much else; some grassy hops to start...and end. This taste doesn’t develop at all. Mouthfeel is decent which makes it a passable summer/grilling/lawnmower beer.

Bottle Julie brought from Illinois. Pours orange/copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is citrus and fruit. Med body, almost. Flavor is lightly roasty caramel, and some fruity/earthy hop. It is bitter. Might have been a big deal in 1985.
