Poured into pint glass from 12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy golden color with lasting white head. Smells of light citrus and hops. Tastes sweet with citrus and pine notes. Drinks crisply without harshness. Good beer in general.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Blonde color with a big head. Aroma is classic IPA. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits. A little pine in there too. Taste is very strong. Big bold flavor with lots of citrus. The finish is very wheat-like. The only drawback is the palate. The high carbonation leads to not the best feeling in your mouth. Nicely done overall.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow-orange color with nice white lacing. Medium aroma that leans towards a lemon citrus feel. The palate does have a slight creaminess to it but the citrus comes through on the back palate. Very little bitterness and overall a very nice IPA.

Draught. Good firm hop component and not overly astringent. Balanced if one dimensional. full body stands up to crisp hoppiness.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy golden yellowish-orange color with a frothy two finger white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lace left behind.
Pleasant citrus hop aroma with some bready yeast, zesty spice and light fruit. Hints of orange peel and pepper alon with some pale malt.
Medium bodied but on the thinner side with some zesty citrus flavor but not much hop bitterness. Spicy with hints of pepper and corriander followed by bready yeast and citrus rind. Faint malt backbone with caramel and biscuit notes. Dry finish. Tastes more like a hoppy wheat beer than an IPA. Mediocre.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nothing exciting with this beer. A citrus aroma with a large foam head, but not much flavor and taste. Goes down smooth, but not much of an experience.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle shared at a recent group tasting. Poured to a sampler with a clear, golden hue, decent white head foam, and wavey cling to the lacing. The aroma was lightly floral, subtle malt sweetness, and a good blend of citrus and mid-fruit. The flavor was similar, with the body a little lighter than medium, moderately bitter, but a nice balance of malt and hop. Flavorful, standard IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
1. Look – A pale amber IPA with a frothy white head and good carbonation.
2. Sniff – It has a very citrusy nose with a somewhat fruity aroma.
3. Sip – This medium bodied IPA has a mild orange peel flavor with soft bitter finish. Also, there is almost a bubble gum flavor aftertaste that is very subtle.
4. Another Look – This IPA has a long lasting white head with very good lacing.
5. Evaluate – Overall, this is IPA is well balanced with a tasty malt character and a citrusy aroma and flavor. I would recommend this IPA to anyone who enjoys IPA’s –but also those who enjoy mildly bitter ales with a big citrus flavor.
