3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy golden pour. Thinnish white head recedes quickly. Nice aroma of hops and oranges. Slightly floral and herbal. Slightly medicinal. Bitterness isn’t super strong but it is astringent. Yet, there’s a nice hop character in there and solid balance. Pretty drinkable, especially out of the can.

Slightly hazy orange, small off white head. Aroma pine and citrus hops, malt. Medium body. Flavor is pine-like hops, just off dry, fairly malty without being particularly sweet. The bitterness is fairly subtle for an IPA but overall well balanced and enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by Leighton at RBWG. I did not care for this beer apparently. My only notes are: light water, malt, sweet malt, grain, little bitter. My guess is that it didn’t really stand up to the other awesome pale ales we were having this weekend.
