3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the brewery. Poured an okay looking amber body with an average sized foamy off white head. Aroma of earth, bread, toast and light citrus. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavor is much like the aroma with a big grain bill with lots of bread and toast and only light hop flavor. Meh I donít like "balanced" IPAs, if itís going to be an IPA give me hops.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazed amber with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of grass, caramel,and light floral hops. Taste of bitter, grassy hops, more caramel, and finishing with an unpleasant raw hop bitterness. Sweet (again), yet bitter and just all over the place.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at brewery..final tasting of the bunch. Not very much exciting going on here. Thought this would be much better after seeing something that this got an award at the ac beer festival. Not much aroma or carbonation. Called an ipa but in description at brewery regarded as a pale ale. Not really a noticeable hop presence in taste. Tasted like a very bland and dull American pale ale. For those who claim this is a session beer, I just donít think so..not a fan of this..

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is hazy amber with a decent sized white head. Aroma is of great floral hops with a slight sweetness in the background. The taste is a lot more sweet forward than a normal IPA but still finishes with a great bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
An amber hued hazy beer. Aroma was a balance between floral hops and sweet malts. Taste was smooth and refreshing with a mildly hop bite and sweet malts. Not bitter at all and pretty flavorful. I had mine right out of the growler.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A sample at the AC Beer Fest. Maybe not fair to judge on such a small sample but it was a little too sweet and not hoppy enough for my taste. I will seek it out and try a pint and rerate down the road.
