3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Lord Hobo. Pours a crisp golden color with a finger or so of sticky foam. The nose is slightly sweet with nice malt backbone and bright floral citrus and grassy hops notes. The palate starts off quite nice with touches of juicy tropical fruit notes that quickly turn more grassy and herbal eventually bittering out and turning slightly volatile in the lingering finish. Nice, but nothing too special.

Large bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Very refreshing IPA. A bit on the lighter side of the IPA spectrum but well done and very drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Muckey’s. Pours out a slightly hazy golden brew with a thin white head. Herbal-spice-malt aromas. Flavor is bready with some herbal stickiness. Drinks more like a hoppy golden ale than a true IPA. Body is medium to heavy and finish is long and sticky.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty average IPA, but drinkable and enjoyable for summer nonetheless. A little watery, could use some backbone for a bit more taste. Average hops, all in all not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a mostly clear golden colored body with a thin, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is lighter with some floral fruits, a touch of caramel, and a light orange pine. Flavor is pretty citrusy up front with a slightly sweet orange pine and some floral fruits. A light caramel in the middle before the sweet pines and florals come in a bit more to dry this while still finishing a touch sweet with a moderate bitterness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, an ok IPA. Solid flavor with a nice mix of floral fruits and citruses. Nothing special, but enjoyable.
