2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pours clear deep amber with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is so faint as to be almost undetectable. Flavor brings out some pine and caramel notes, along with light sweetness. Quite bitter from start to finish, leading me to think it was an old pour; no aroma to go with the bitterness. Again, a lightly metallic aftertaste.

On tap at the pub. Pours gold with a wispy thin head. Mild citrus aroma. Malt, citrus, and grapefruit flavors. Not real hoppy for an IPA. Tastes more like an American pale ale. Medium body with medium carbonation. Somewhat thin mouthfeel with a dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at BJs in Tucson. Clear and coppery with a layer of off white foam. Some citrus in the nose but not a lot. Light hop flavors to start. Floral and citrus. Some earth is tasted and a bit of spiciness. A bit of fruit is nice but like everything here, is not really enough. A little pepper comes in late. Light bitterness lingers. This is definitely not the best IPA I have had but it is enjoyable.
