3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a lightish copper with a 2 finger, fluffy off white head. Aroma is biscuit, pine, light citrus and floral hops, caramel and a little toffee. Flavor is mroe biscuit, caramel, piney and planty hops are most prevailant, but some citrus as well, a slightly Englishy yeast profile, toast and some bitter pine and light grassiness to the finish. Palate is light to medium bodied, with a creamy to slick feel, mild carbonation and off dry finsh with a lingering bitterness clinging to the palate. O.K. overall. No major flaws, but nothing all that impressive.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, amber-gold pour with a white head. The aroma is a little earthy with herbal and light pine notes. It has a light, watery texture with lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet and easy drinking with smooth, quick finish. Not bad, but not exciting either.

A- Citrus, hoppy, watery, pine.

T- Hoppy, bitter, unbalanced, subtle citrus, pine.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish.
O- I would be embarrassed to sell this beer under my name. Just a poor IPA that is very unbalanced and lacks flavor and is nothing but bitter water.

Some yeastiness.Then a slight tangy finish some herbal in there-possibly berry like,pretty mild smooth bittering.Some nice complex hop flavors overall. Solid good average-above average ipa.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A copper beer. Thin white head. It’s generally malty, not much hop character. More like an american amber than an IPA, but it’s drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a darker orange copper color. Smaller white head that did last for a while. Lacing was left on the glass as it went. Aroma was mild citrus, grass and hops. Flavor was a little metallic, spruce and malty flavors. Malty backbone. Very even balanced. Ok 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.
