3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nothing too special here. Copper color with malty/ light hoppy smell. Small head that leaves fast. Flavor is malty with light hops coming in at the end. Just O.K.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a clear copper with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of orange juice, dish detergent, some piney hops. Taste is dry with some light toffee, pine needles, soap, and some earthiness. Medium fizzy body. Not sure why an American brewer would chose to do an English-style IPA, as this is unequivocally inferior to most American IPA’s I’ve had.

Lots of citrus right from the start. A well balanced IPA, but could handle a little more hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber color with a medium white head. Aroma is hops, citrus, caramel, and some floral hops. Flavor is strong of sweet malts at first then gives way to the citrus and floral hops. Decently bitter finish. Not too bad, but not my favorite IPA.
