3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a ton of hop aroma. Looks fine. Plenty of bittering hops, especially in the finish. Itís okay but a bit nutty and definitely unbalanced by the bittering hops.

Pint, Draft, Cincinnati, OH location. Gold brown color, thin slight hay like malt, lingering bitterness. High carbonation, slick feel. A bit of a chemical aftertaste. Not the best IPA, but the best beer in the pub. I did the flight after this and the IPA was the best.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden orange coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of strong hops, some caramel and a good malt balance with a bit of citrus tucked in. Medium-bodied; Potent hoppy flavour with some good citrus and almost wheatie characteristics, but a nice malt backbone and some good grapefruit and slightly piney hop character shows well. Overall, a nice IPA for a brewpub and slightly better than you might have expected. However, it isnít sublime and incredible. I sampled this pint on draught at the BJs in Tustin, California with haddon90 on 27-August-2011.
