3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Finished second to Yellow Kite as my favorite beer of this sampler pack. Very nice IPA but not at the top of my favorites. Something I really enjoyed was the blending of the bitter/grapefruit/malt/hop concoction. Again, this is a beer I would recommend others give a try.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 ounce sample on tap at The Broadmoor Hotel. The aroma is pleasant enough with pine and floral hop character. Quite quaffable. Attractive, transparent ruddy copper body with a small, light tan head. Starts with some fruity character, before some big piney resins come through in the middle. Finishes moderately bitter and quite piney. There’s almost a bit of a urinal cake character going on here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear dark amber with a nice sized off white head and good lacing. Aroma has juicy citrus and pine notes with a hint of floral. Taste has a good amount of bitterness with pine and grapefruit in equal proportions with a hint of black pepper and citrus pith finish. Light bodied with an aqueous mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Tastes like an old school west coast IPA. Dry and resinous with plenty of bitter. Not bad at all.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild citrus hop aroma. Pretty color with a decent head. Medium palate and easy to drink. It was a mix of hoppy pale ale and IPA. Not over the top, just even keel and better than most of their beers.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear bright amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like caramel, dry grapefruit, citrus hops, toasted malt, and resin. Medium body and carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, toasted malt, caramel, grapefruit, and a hint of vinegar.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty IPA with primarily piney hops. Bit of a soapy odd finish in addition the the piney hop finish. Unfiltered "dirty" feel to it. Drinkable but nothing really stands out about this IPA.
