1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
This was the last of the trolley beers we tried. Yuck... I was shocked it had a high rating so I tried another bottle but this was awful. Its like when you get a grapefruit and its not tart but spoiled. With a taste of the rind leaving you desperate to get that awful taste out of your mouth.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into shaker. Nice white foam settles into lingering thick lace. Translucent amber color. Hay aroma with herbs and earth tones. Not as bitter as I would expect from an IPA. Lingering hoppy finish however. I would drink this again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden orange from the bottle with thin lacy white head that doors nicely. Aroma of nice pine and citrus hop notes with a hint of pale malt back. Taste follows with a nice bitter finish that lasts for a while. Decent, but nothing special.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought at the local grocery store in Oscoda, MI because it was the only beer I hadnít tried. Scrawled on my sheet of notes from the trip really large is the word underwhelming. Poured clear amber with piney caramel aroma. Flavor pretty plain and boring. Sweet base with hop finish but nothing strong at all. Overall, would pass if had to do it again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is definitely quite hoppy and bitter, though this might be old, since I canít get any detailed nose aside from a faint whiff of resin. Taste is pretty bitter and long lasting, but has just a slight sweetness in the finish. Nowhere near a great IPA, but Iíd drink it again.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Copper-orange pour with thin white head. Aroma is caramel malt, pine, floral, herbal. Tastes are sweet malt, little resiny, toasty, background bitter. Kinda bland.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A simple but effective IPA that shows ample hop bite and spiciness, while still maintaining a solid, subtly malty caramel backbone. Clean and crisp with a medium long spicy hop fade.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dank aroma. Medium amber color. Tastes like all bittering hops. No flavoring or aroma hops. Tastes like a highly hopped yeungling.

bottle. Deep golden with small head. Light bodied IPA with underwhelming hops. Not awful, but certainly not that good.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with average white head. Aroma is kumquat, stale malt, past over hops. Taste is almost a lambic tart which then goes into the typical past its prime IPA taste. Not good. Spend more time on the brewing than the label.

12 ounce bottle pours a copper color aromas of gras, biscuit, light earth. Flavors are the same light citrus thrown in but feint.
