3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap. Cloudy golden with a lasting spot of creamy foam. Nose is resin, spicy citrus and caramel. Taste is the same with some wheat on the finish. Near-medium body has medium carbonation and is to the dry side. Decent white IPA.

Never had high hopes for Calfkiller. I think their whole "trying to be different" brewing techniques just causes something to be off. Their beers never are put together correctly. This one is labeled an IPA yet is colored like a wheat (cloudy and hazey) and tastes like a dry lager (copper with a grassy finish). I will continue to support their local efforts in hopes I will find one to suite my palate.

This beer has a dominating grainy funkiness that is not unappealing for those inclined towards this expression. It resembles the funk of a white dog whiskey made from corn or barley but unlike those the funk in this beer is a bit more accessible and less unruly. Wizard sauce is cloudy and has a bit of a chewy mouthfeel. It is not a refined beer but its interesting and has its charm.

16 oz draft pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of malts, grass and citrus. Taste is the malts, yeast and a bit of citrus.

Growler from The Market on Washington. Okay, this is not an IPA. I had no idea what style was intended, so I had no preconceptions and no disappointment. This seems more like a dry, hoppy light golden ale. Itís very light, crisp and sessionable. Clean grassy citrus notes with a dry crackery finish. There are hints of lemon. Light, clean grapefruit highlights the slight palate. Great summer brew! (Not an IPA)

Clear gold with a sticky, long lasting white head.
Aroma is resiny pine hops and a bit of sweet malt.
The flavor is pretty washed out and the body is very thin.
Really disappointed. I will try again if I find this on draft.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from a beer shop in Nashville. Rad that they do growler fills. Pours a darker red/brown with light white head. Aroma is grass, malt, hay and some wet metal. Taste is slight grassy hops, very malty (from a tap) and some iron/metal notes. Overall, I wanted to love a brewery called Calfkiller but sad this doesnít live up to my internal mind hype.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This ones a bit confusing. Advertised as an IPA but actually the beer is very yellow pale wheat/lager color. Taste is equally as head scratching as I canít pinpoint a particular flavor of this beer. Grass, woodsy, wheat tones initial sip and a clean, crisp lager-like finish..Little hop characteristics in taste. Head is white and very foamy and lacing strung about the glass nicely. Overall a head scratcher but still drinkable I suppose

Sampled at the 2012 East Nashville Beer Festival. Served by a wizard. Grassy and cereal, with notes of grassy hops. Dry woody finish. Lots of sticky hops.
