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 isn’t going to be their big seller.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber/orange in color. Thin white head leaves just a bit lacing. Fairly average IPA. Lightly sweet, biscuit malt with a moderate pine bitterness. Decent, but needs more hop bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Capitals first shot at an IPA. Poured a nice dark golden with a one finger head that hung around with decent lacing. Pretty straightforward palate but yet enjoyable. Not complicated but yet very solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Overall, very solid and well balanced beer. Taste was just a little too simple and straight forward. The citrus smell and bitter taste came through, but the flavor was fairly one note. This would make a wonderful food pairing beer. Good beer, but it needed something more to be a great beer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Whte grape aroma might suggest sauvin hops in the aroma. Flavor is again winey, medium bitterness, light mandarin orange, and some bready malt. Crisp, dry palate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured bright, lighter orange with a well-retained, sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up orange zest, grass, and peppery hoppage over sweet caramel and biscuity notes.. OK, but it didn’t really pop. The flavor found orange, grass, and pine bitterness over bready malts.. grainy, residual sugars and bitterness on the finish.. a bit tacky and sharp by the end. Lighter-bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. didn’t flow great.. this was just OK.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear pale amber pour with white head. Nose is too clean with mild pine hops and lager/pale malt dominating. Flavor is a sweet, lightly biscuity malt with a moderate pine bitterness that lingers and is fairly drying. Needs more hop aromatics and less of a dry finish. Overall, an okay offering, but forgettable.
