A pretty standard IPA, a bit lighter and sweeter than the average hoppy beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep copper color. Has a decent head that lasts with good lacing. Citrus & fresh grain aroma. Starts with a citrus & mild sweetness and has a nice bitter finish that lingers. Quite refreshing actually. Has a moderate body with a dry touch. This is an easy drinker. Reminds me of a nice ale at a pub in England.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, courtesy of jbye4334. Pours an orange/copper color with a 1/2" white head. Delicate rings of lacing are left behind as the head recedes. Aroma is citrus hops with a hint of malt. Nice, substantial palate with soft carbonation. Good citrus hop flavor with a touch of sweet caramel malt. I don’t see what the IBUs on this were, but it would have benefited from a little more bitterness. Nice IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Josh. THanks! Nose is floral and lightly citrus with doughy malt notes and a hint of caramel. Pours hazy golden orange with a thin non lasting head. The flavor is rather subdued mix of citrus, floral hops, dough, and caramel malt. Lightly bitey hop finish. Would like to try this on draught as I can see it being a completely different experience.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, orange-copper colored body with a finger-width, creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is floral and piney citrus with a lightly toasted caramel and a hint of bread. A nice mixture of grapefruits and oranges. Flavor is similar. Dank, flowery oranges with some brighter, piney grapefruits that blend well with a lightly toasted, biscuity caramel. Finishes a tad grainy and smooth with a dry, moderate level of leafy bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste after a medium-thin body and light carbonation. Could be a bit more crisp. Overall, a nice IPA. Well balanced between the high amounts of hops and sweeter malts. Easy drinking and enjoyable.
