3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can pours a clear golden/orange with big fluffy white head that leaves some lacing clumps. Aroma is mostly stale bready malts with a bit of floral hops and some grass. Taste is slightly bitter at first, but the cardboard and caramel middle dominates. Finish is short and dry. Light to medium body with average carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. A below-average IPA from a brewery that I keep trying no matter how many times they have disappointed me. Not bad, given the discounted price, but not very memorable, either.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a bright, slightly hazy golden with a medium white head that lasts a long time. The aroma is more subdued and is a bit sweet, with orange, citrus hops, pine, and grapefruit. The taste gives you orange citrus upfront, which than extends into a grainy tasting mediocrity. There is a little bit of pineapple, grapefruit, and some metal tastes as well. Short grainy aftertaste. Medium bodied, a somewhat bubbly texture, and fizzy carbonation. I’m wasn’t impressed.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a near clear orange but has a ton of sediment and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a bit of pine with a strong grass note and a decent amount of sweet grains. Flavor is similar with lots of grass and some sweet grains and a slight pine bite.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a clear orange with a large white head. Aroma is an ok hop not striking but there. Flavor is more a caramel malt with a very minor hop in the backround. Finish is a heavy dose of malt. It had a minor hop presence so it was not awful but in the large world of IPA’s you have to go all out and this did not.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright amber hue with an upfront florally citrus aroma. Didn’t blow me away, but it wasn’t bad either.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oa bottle. If they had come out with a completely bad-ass IPA, people would have lost their shit. This is straight up mediocrity, maybe worse. First of all, anything Stevens Point touches it destroys. Definite grainy buttery schwaggy action. Thick and sugary. Cheap quality. Unenjoyable. More than likely I will never drink this beer again.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Out of a can...nice cloudy amber color, off white head that’s fades away quickly. Upfront aroma mostly citrus and pine. Nice body, a bit slick, very nice carbonation with some bitterness at the end.
Overall, its a run of the mill IPA, been there, done that sort of thing.
