3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in New Brighton. Medium copper pour, thick off-white head, very sticky. Faint chocolate in the aroma. Flavor has some muted citrus, a hint of chocolate and some caramel. Not as citrusy as most IPAs. Thickish mouthfeel.

Different ipa for me. Some citrus but really light on hops. It was very smooth with nice malt sweetness.

Sample at Brew Pub. Decent, but not the best IPA - especially after just drinking their IIPA.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap @ Barley Johns. Pours a dark golden appearance with a nice creamy khaki head. Dull, cooked veggie, herbal hoppy aroma. DMS, corny, floral, crappy bitter flavor. Just off and not good. Little hop presence which makes the DMS forefront.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler pour. Amber colored, small white head. Pretty heavy body, quite sweet. Not overly hoppy. Very drinkable beer but not much of an IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap at BJ, you might have convinced me this was from cask because of the temp served and mouthfeel, not a hop bomb here, but a super balanced creamy ipa

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has a weird skunky bitter scent, pours an interesting brown/tea color. Taste is malty and caramel bitterness, decent.
