2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy brown-gold pour, decent head retention. Aroma of spiced cracker, jalapeños, and black pepper (wtf?!). Hoppy character is suppressed by the peppers. Weird, definitely not what an IPA should be.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. From memory; not very memorable. Typical IPA pour. Aroma was light, basic. Flavor was fairly bitter, but without anything very interesting other than bitterness. Not worth trying again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very hoppy light bodied bitter and malty sweet with bitter aftertaste. Its an orangy hazy brew with a white head. Its almost crisp with a good combo of malt and hops. A good summer beer not a bad brew
