Drinks like an English style pale. Pretty easy drinking. It’s different. Not bad. Not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden brown on tap with fluffy off-white head that dissipates. Aroma and taste are mostly malt to me, bread and caramel, barely there hints of earthy pine hops. Not bad, but lacking a punch.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Taco Mac. Amber with offwhite head. Nice hops aroma - citrus and pine. Taste is mostly bitter, but some bready malt in the background. Good body and drinkability. Overall, a good ipa.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazed orange pour with white fluffy head. Smell is candied orange citrus with fruity notes. Taste is instantly reminiscent of a Belgian ipa. Big fruity, esters galore, citrus, orange peel. Pretty tasty but unexpected.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thick white head. Light yellow color with a slight hint of orange and very clear. Hoppy Citrus with a touch of piney spice. A very smooth drinking IPA with a wonderfully pleasant citrus aroma and dry hop flavor.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap Taco Mac- East Roswell. Clear copper pour with foamy ivory head. Loads of lacing. Aroma of resin, hay, floral hops, and sweet malts. Sharp hop bitterness upfront, floral and resin, followed by a nice malty backbone. Sweet malts balance out the sharp bitterness. A nice solid IPA.

When I drank this on cask at Brick Store I thought, "oh, that is how you do cask correctly." Pours a pale amber with white head. Scent is sweet and grainy. Excellent bitter bite up front with a sweet finish. Cask - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler. Pours a clear, attractive amber with a very thick, fluffy, persistent ivory head. The growler foamed like a bottle of New Year’s champagne when I opened it - as I write this, I am wearing some of this brewski. Strong, hoppy aroma is mainly woody/hay and has an underpinning of citrus, mainly grapefruit and orange. Flavor fits the aroma, hoppy, woody, citrusy, and enjoyable. Texture has good firmness and quite a bit of fizz, leaving a nice hoppy and grapefruit/orange finish. If not a great IPA, certainly a pleasing one. I look forward to more of BlueTarp’s offerings.
