on tap-pours an offwhite head with copper color. Aroma is sweet medium malt, hops. Taste is equal malt and hops, but not quite right. OK carbonation.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Plastic sample cup at the brewery tasting room. Color is macro colored yellow with a weak flimsy head. Slightly hoppy aroma followed by a moderately hopped taste. I wouldnt call it an APA but a hoppy pale ale. A weak malt presence. Finish is moderate bitterness. One demonsional, also get some cooked vegetable aroma.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Brazen Head, Downtown Brooklyn. Clear amber/orange with a decent white head, leaving some sheets of lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops. Flavor of grapefruit zest hops,with a tea-like dryness and astringency and a resiny hop finish. My only problem was that it had a too thin, soapy and watery body (which could be viewed as "drinkable" or "goes down smooth"). I’d prefer a bigger palate, but otherwise a pretty good session APA.

cask, gravity pour @ Goodbar Special beer night. Body is a hazy gold, veryt hin head w. large bubbles. Nose is first & foremost glorious hop. PLenty of tangerene, citrus (orange, lemon, pineapple) gives way to some light caramel malt. Flavor is light hay, light caramel, orange, resin, tropical fruit. THis is far from the best IPA I’ve had but extremely drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Oyster Bar Restaurant in Grand Central Station, NYC. Solid, standard APA, light orange appearance, fluffy white head with good thick lacing. Sweet floral aroma. Light citrusy flavor, a little bit of malty back end with some nutty accents. Hint of mint in there as well. Mouthfeel could be a tad thicker, but does not detract.
