3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Barley-Hoppers. Pours a very murky darkish gold with a lasting, creamy, white head and strong lacing. Nose is root beer, medicinal... not what you would expect from an ipa. Taste has similar cream soda/root beer characteristics with little bitterness or hoppiness, leaves a little sweet aftertaste. Nice slick mouthfeel, good carbonation. Tasty, but I wouldn’t call it an ipa.

Can poured to pint glass. Golden/copper, small, constant bubbles. Piney, sappy hops, agave? Just enough malt profile while not being bitter, really refreshing finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can while standing in line at LA Barbecue, Austin, TX. Aroma is citrus, mild pine, malt. After drinking a few Lone Stars, the bitterness was quite lingering of course it is also 92 degrees at 11 am. Anyhow the overall flavor was big on citrus with good malt support. Has a lightly drying texture. Or maybe the drying comes from this Texas heat, not sure.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a dark orange with a high, medium-grained, cream-colored head with lace. Nose is spruce, lime, and a wide variety of floral notes; not very strong, but with a definite personality. Really big bitter punch on the front of the tongue, followed by round citrus notes (orange, lime) and a slight floral edge. Moves into herbal bitterness on the back of the tongue. A definite chained beast; the mild nose belies the intensity of the flavor. Finish is smooth and very long. An excellent basic IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky orange pour, lots of sediment, fluffy white head. Malt and faint hops in the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is surprisingly sweet; caramel, juicy orange and tangerine with a nice malt blanket. Finish is still sweet. Not bad, but not an IPA fro me.
