Pours deep straw colored. Excellent head and lacing. Super hoppy, citrusy, floral, fruity aroma. 10 for aroma. Finishes very smooth, with hints of hops, malt, citrus, and perfumy florals. Great beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy gold with small white head. It looks like it has character and it delivers. The aroma is hoppy floral pine. The initial taste is bitter but the second is better, as so on as your palate adjusts to a very nice IPA.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear orange color with thin, pale, sudsy head leaving light lacing. Some iridescence in the bubbles. Strong hops scent, some pine & citrus aromas. Hoptastic flavor, nice bitter bite, a little detergent astringency, very little malt profile. Much more bubbly and effervescent than I expected. Clean dry finish. Reminds me a bit of a Lagunitas IPA. Pleasant and smooth-drinking, but not terribly complex.

Great aroma mixes citrus and resin. Bitter like it should be but doesn’t linger. Decent balance for an IPA. Good for a midwest beer, but it’s no Odell IPA.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
2 month old bottle poured to my SN IPA glass.
A- Golden to orange color with brilliant clarity, pours with a two finger white head. Good retention and lacing, which lasts throughout the glass.
S- Smells of grapefruit and pineapple with a slight yeast character also present. A slight caramel sweetness possibly from the malt in the background.
T- Floral and grassy hop flavors along with some citrus fruit, once again the pineapple and grapefruit from the nose is apparent. A sweet note (possibly caramel malt?) is present on the back end of the sip. Moderate bitterness, but it doesn’t overpower or peel your enamel like some in the style. No alcohol taste is present.
M- Medium/high carbonation, low/medium mouthfeel, and a great drying note on the end from the low finishing gravity of this beer really dries things out and makes for a refreshing beer that you want to take another sip of almost immediately.
O- Trying to be as objective as possible with this one, but in all honesty, I just love this beer! It is incredibly drinkable; I could easily drink 3-4 of these in the time it takes me to drink some other IPAs. The flavors of the centennial hops dominate, but there is enough malt to back it up. In addition, the finishing gravity of this beer makes for an easy drinking beer that doesn’t fill you up.

Pours clear gold with thick white head. Aroma is light balance hops and malt. Flavor is more of the same. No super strong flavor just super balanced. Mouthfeel is extremely smooth with low carbonation. Overall an excellent ipa super tasty super smooth.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle into a shaker at home. This is one of my favorite "go to" IPAs that is consistently good. A healthy head (about two fingers) gives way to a floral hop aroma with traces of tropical fruit. While the hops are the real star in this beer, it has enough malt backbone to keep it from being hop juice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good thick head...smells like a bitter. Taste reminds me of cheap gin and sweet and sour sauce. I expected more. Extremely bitter and unsatisfying aftertaste. Crisp and dry ale with a lame finish. Boo.
