Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with white head, aroma has notes of some wet grain, biscuit, some slight grass and herbal notes, hints of orange peel as well. Taste is a mix of some grass, pine, biscuit notes come through with some slight spice, touch of orange peel, finishing fairly sweet, some slight mineral notes as well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
An interesting take on the cream ale and one that fits the description nicely. Maintains the smoothness of the cream ale with a nice grass aroma thanks to the hops. Still, if I were faced with the choice of a nice cream ale or a nice IPA or pale, I would go for either over this style. Had one courtesy of Josh N. in KC in 2012

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, poured into pint glass.
Pours like appejuice, golden, little head.
Nice piney hops scent right off the bat.
The 34 IBU's seems a perfect mesh with the not too noticeable cream.
This is a rather nice ipa that hints at a cream ale. Great balance, smooth palate, fine finish! Definitely recommend, as the name may ward off the right consumers!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is grassy hops and mild nutty/sweet maltiness. The flavor is citrus hops, mild cream overtones and a mildly sweet malty finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another solid offering from Capital. Medium orange amber with a l-o-o-o-n-g lasting white head, and full swirls of lace. Taste begins with a sweet caramel malt, which is quickly overtaken by mild, but persistent, hops. The hop bitter continues through the finish, actually lasting far beyond normal expectations. A good combination. Recommended.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy gold with little bit of white head. Slightly floral hop aroma. Little it of metallic taste up front, I think that’s just me though, I get it with alot of beers and I don’t know why. After that fades away its a pretty smooth cream ale with a some hoppyness to it. little bit of sweetness to it and some piney hops. Not really bitter at all, but it has plenty of interesting flavor. Pretty unique good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light copperish gold.Slight head leaving a bit of foam/lacing.
Pretty fresh strong hop aroma of fruit/floral.Buscuit and a sweet toasted carmel with a bit of a metallicy lager note that seem common in lagers and octoberfests,very nice aroma really.
Taste has some same qualities.Its smooth with a grainy sweetness slight creamyness, slight toastyness-light-light med body, a citrusy/peppery finish and bite,pretty hoppy flavor overall.The citrusy/pepper bite balances the sweetness.Im thinking this is pretty damn fresh.Almost a pale ale but alot smoother.Very sessionable ,its not that bitter but has that tangy carbonated citrusy sting to it.Quite enjoyable beer.Name is fitting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale gold with a thin, creamy, off white head. Aroma is citrus, tart berries, a hint of green tea, a little caramel, fruity yeast and mineral notes. Flavor is caramel, yeasty bread, lots more citrus and green tea. Lightish body with a slightly creamy, slightly dry entry, light, but fairly sharp carbonation and off dry finish. Interesting stuff, they definitely accomplished their goal of packing a good amount of hop aroma and flavor with minimal bitterness. I like it, though I wouldn’t mind a bit more bitterness.
