4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a light IPA that goes down very smooth, definitely lighter than most IPAs. It has a very crisp finish with a light smoky flavor lingering for a while.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Deep amber pour with an off-white head. The nose has a touch of orange marmalade and softly sweet crystal malt. A little bit of caramel and toffee sweetness as well as some light earthiness. The bitterness is quite restrained. Lighlty plummy and a little bit of orange marmalade but it’s mostly a mish-mash of sweetish malts and light hops. A lingering stickiness on the back of the palate – not cloying at all but it could be dryer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at BT> Pours a medium dull amber with a thin head. Aroma is earthy light fruity bubblegum, toffee, caramel, tea, and mostly english-like- as it warms it has a lighter fresh hay and fresh cut grass after a light rain shower. Flavor is also earthy, woodsy light grass, tea, herbs and flowers with a toffee and medium crystal malt profile, - lemon and more flowers as it warms. Nice.
