3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at the brewpub, clear red pour with thin slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of grass, slight orange, grapefruit in there mixing into some slight spice, nice caramel and toffee in there, a bit weak. Taste is a mix of red fruits, some caramel, toffee, slight vanilla into spice, nice orange peel, grassy notes, finishing fairly bitter.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours murky dark yellow with a small white head.
Smell slight juicy citrus.
Taste bitter, thick, and oily
One dimensional and boring.

This is not a red. Very Hop driven and flowery. Notes of soap too. Unfair for me to say since this sort of thing ainít my bag baby.

Growler from the RAM in Wheeling, supplied by ck1 to the Mom-without-Bill tasting. Thanks bro! Has a nice aroma, fruity and pine. The taste does not following all the way. Would have another.

On tap at Ram, Tacoma. It pours an unclear, dark orange body under some off-white to light beige head leaving curtains. Lots of pine cones in the aroma, not much maltyness kicking in. Fruityness and a touch of peaches too. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Quite dry, with a nice bitterness in the flavor, both initially and in the end. Some maltyness to back it up. Certainly a nice IPA, well worth a second and third glass. 130629

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straw body with amber tint. Light caramel notes with some weak crystal and milled grain. Minimal sweetness with fruit notes. Light citrus and maybe a touch of pine. Very pedestrian but nothing offensive.

Draft at shaumburg. Aroma is mostly hops, grassy and floral. Taste is light nitter. Meh, nothing super special here. Drinkable but boring

Sampler at the Schaumburg RAM. Okay, maybe itís because Iím chatting with the friendly brewmaster, but Iím really liking this stuff. That and the fact that a sampler "Curl" is $5, no matter how many samples are on it, and I have 10! So this is a derker amber color, and still has a good layer of foam although itís been on the bar a while. Again, my nose was hampered by a cold and restroom soap, so just a general yes on the aroma. A large pine and resin hop note that swims to coat my soft palate. In other words, a hop goblin.
