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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Riley’s Wines of the World in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel malt with some floral and light citrus. Taste is medium bodied with flavors of caramel malt with a hint of floral and citrus hops Finish is semi-sweet with a caramel malt aftertaste and a mild hop bitterness. Nothing spectacular that could knock your average hophead’s socks off, but more of a hoppy amber ale overall.

Pours a light rusty golden color with a short beige ephemeral head . Nose is mildly hoppy but all in all not an aroma buster . Taste is light citrus, mildly hoppy with some trailing sweetness. Finishes bitterly with nice lacing and on the same tasting notes. Descent ! Quaff Score 7 /10

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.

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.
