3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a golden yellow color with a white head that had some retention and decent lace. Nice cereal malts and mild sweet malts. Mostly grapefruit hops and some mild bitter hops. Grapefruit hops weren’t over powering which was good. Flavor was similar and the finish was dry. Nice carbonation. An okay IPA.

This is a bit off style for me but still a good beer. The hops are not your typical west coast style the I prefer. This seems to be more English inspired. Still a good quaff.

5 oz. taster from @ the brew pub. Another nice brew. Nose of fresh cut grass with a dandelion type note. Flavor is all floral hops and some wheat. Base of the beer is wheat. Lighter body and a real refreshing standard IPA. A nice more traditional style IPA. Well worth a try.

Pours a clear yellow with a bit of white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is citrus and trees. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is bitter, then REALLY bitter, then a moderately bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.
