3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light golden orange with good head,excelent frothy lace.
Aroma is mildly hoppy floral maybe slightly with sweet fruit,slight dankness, possibly herbal with caramel and light bready yeast. Some funkiness.
Taste is same but hops aroma and taste becomes more vivivd as it warms.Becomes more of a dank earthy hop profile in taste.Has some sticky caramel malty sweetness.Peppery fruit.Strong spicey pine finish.Seems to fit the bill of a malty midwestern ipa. A bit sweet though. Some dryness in finish.Almost a little hot and boozie also

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is yeast, citrus and very light pine. The flavor is citrus, light grapefruit, slightly soapy in texture, malts and a dry/lightly bitter finish. Decent enough but, as expected, Capitalís German style offerings are their best.

Pours a clear medium orange with a big white head. Good lacing. Smells very citrusy, mostly grapefruit and mango. Tastes of grapefruit, resin, and some pine. Not sure why this beer isnít rating better, but a very nice IPA and glad to see it from Capital.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from BrookFalls Discount. Pours a very clear pale orange with a soapy white head leaving a lot of lacing. Aroma has fruit, bread and faint pine. Taste is of sweet toffee malts, some citrus and a lot of resin. Finishes sweetly with some bitterness. A semi-malty, semi bitter ipa.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear, light copper-gold. Amber tinged white head, like soft whipped cream, receded slowly, leaving a full white cap. Aroma out was nicely floral, herbal, citrus for a brief moment, then it was gone, leaving a slightly yeasty aroma. Initial flavor is slightly sweet, a modest hop bitter emerges with the sweet, and finishes slightly peppery. A little more body than some. Simple, clean, no complaints. ("Crossovert" ís discription is very interesting).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright gold pour with a frothy tan head. Hoppy resin notes on the notes with a bit of spicy fruitness. Sweet bitter taste with a pretty easy finish. Not the hoppiest ipa but overall decent

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Twist-off cap; they should know better. Pours clear, bright orange with soapy white head. Decent lacing. Moderate hop nose, mostly orange flesh and a hint of pine. Bitter kick up front, more citrus and lots of malt to boost. Bready, pilsner-ish mouthfeel. A little thin. Better than I expected.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear dark golden with a nice white head and lacing through the glass, looks nice, the aroma is pretty sweet with more biscuit and bread coming through than hops, the flavor has a light front end and a little kick of hops in the finish, the mouthfeel is pretty light and the finish is dry, just seemed pretty thin through out, glad to see Capital expanding their styles a little bit, but this one isnít going to be their big seller.
