3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in Nashville. Deep amber in color with a nice lasting off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is caramel malt and resinous and citrusy hops. Not terribly hoppy, but for a British IPA that’s acceptable. Flavor is good and balanced. Caramel and toffee malt notes as well as citrusy and resinous hops. A little pine. Medium-full bodied with some hop oils on the palate. A pretty solid British IPA overall. Surprisingly good for a random brewpub in Nashville.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Nashville location. Small off-white head, transparent body with no visible carbonation, fair amount of lacing, and a yellow-gold hue. The aroma was pine and citrus hops and some malt. The flavor was pine and citrus hops, sweet malt, and mildly bitter tasting. The mouthfeel was lightly tingly and this beer was light-medium bodied. An easy to drink IPA since it was not overly hoppy tasting and one of the few beers that I enjoyed at this establishment.

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated dark orange colored body. The weak aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was strongly tingly at the start and mediumly tingly at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of hops caramel and orange peel. An OK brew just nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had this on tap in Memphis at the brewery. It was clear golden amber color. The hop aroma was not as strong as I would have expected from an IPA. It is very bitter and not balanced for what a IPA should be. Not a big fan.
