3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Certainly not an award winner in my book. I got it on tap at a Ram in Boise. Drank it while watching my Seahawks. Definitely noticed hops on the nose. Nothing to write home about. Dry and malty. Enough for my football game.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Reddish pour, aroma of butter and hop extract. Flavor is cardboard, some caramel, butter and weird sweetness. Lots of carb, i keep burping. 5 bucks for a growler, but I don’t even want to finish it.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had on tap at a Ram in Indianapolis, IN awhile back. Buttery in flavor and mouthfeel... maybe some sort of diacetyl problem.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Big Horn/C.B Potts in Englewood, CO. Pours hazy yellow-orange with white head. Aroma is light hops and citrus with some caramel malt. Flavor is light again with hops but does have some citrus and caramel malt notes. Decent mouthfeel and nice carbonation. Sort of on the light side for an APA but not offensive in any way.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft at the Fishers, IN brewpub - Pours clear amber-orange with aromas of caramel and citrus. The flavor is pretty well balanced with the caramel malt and citrus accented hops both contributing nicely. It’s medium bodied with light hops in the finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
~Semi cloudy gold with white head.
~Citrus berry hop scent.
~Light grapefruity flavor.
~Light to medium feel slightly citrus bitter finish.
~Seems like a weaker version of an IPA. Enjoyable, but doesn’t seem like there was much thought put into it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice lacing, golden color, clean as expected, hops are just a little more on the spicy side.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a Copper color woth minimal head. The aroma was lacking much character, there were some hoppy notes. The hops were a little noticeable, but not as flowery as an APA should be. Overall, it’s not bad, but not great either.
