2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 11-21-2015 at The Hoppy Gnome, Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer is presented with a small beige head that is mostly lasting, hazy amber body, no carbonation noted, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is light citrus hops, light rye, spicy, and tropical fruits. The flavor is lightly bitter, citrus hops, rye, spicy, and tropical fruits. The mouthfeel is smooth with light carbonation. This beer is medium bodied. This beer lacks flavor and is rather bland for the style and is not a beer that I would consider drinking again.

Draft at the Hoppy Gnome in Fort Wayne. This draft brew poured a small quickly diminishing finely sized whatever colored bubbles. The mouth feel was tingly from start to finish. The flavor was nice and pleasant with notes of hops, mildly nutty and mild caramel. Over all a decent session as ale.

Tap at Happy Gnome. Slightly hazy gold pour with a clingy white head. Grapefruit and cereal grains. Palate is a touch thin, and a little watery in terms of flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Sancho’s. Hazy light amber appearance with a fluffy light tan head. Hoppy and dry with peppery spice, light citrus, pine and floral notes. Light toasty grains and bready malts balance things out. Pretty tasty overall.

This ones is ok. Not the best for a dry hopped IPA but ok. Needs more head and hops.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at New Bohemia. Orange in color with minimal head. As expected the fresh hop approach brings the hop aroma to the forefront. Some cereal from the rye. The rye involved kind of messes with the fresh hop taste. A little more bitter than I want or need at the end. Something that just doesn’t work with this option. Find a different beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy dark golden with a thin sticky white head. Zesty hoppy resinous nose with some floral tones and a touch of rye-tinged caramalt. Smooth nutty rye flavor with a overtone of smooth floral fresh leafy hops. Not very rye-ish to be honest but mellow and balanced and bright all around.
