3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Enjoyed this easy drinking IPA from Capital. Has a very basic palate, just a little hops, no real spiciness or bitterness. Extremely drinkable and fun.

Cloudy orange pour at grape escape in galena. Spicy aroma. Dank floral and apricot notes. Not very good. Will get it down the hatch though

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.

Bottle from PW singles rack. Nose and initial taste are very mild hop-wise. Decent but not outstanding. Can’t tell the ’drink by’ or ’bottled’ date...could be stale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear orange. Notable hop aroma, with drinkable malt aroma. Taste is hop forward, but very approachable with a good balance. Good session IPA with some bite.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nearly clear, bubbly amber, with a short, off-white head.
Orange peel.........a little pine aroma.
Taste is moderate bitter orange peel, caramel malt, tea leaves...wood.
Very dry,...white pepper notes.
Ok, but just a plodding, dull bitter throughout.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a darkish dingy orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malt, citrus, pine, and lemon. Notes of cereal grains, mild caramel, iced tea. Flavor is moderately bitter initially with some caramel sweetness and burnt sugar notes. Bitterness intensifies as you drink but it is more of a nondescript generic bitterness rather than a flavorful hop bitterness. Medium bodied, very average carbonation. Finish is abrupt and bitter. This is average.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Clear pale orange pour with a white head. Getting some lager yeast on the nose. Bit of resin bite in the taste, but it’s a bit sharp and persistent. Not a great IPA.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bitterness is out of balance, hop expression is insufficient and off flavor mars appeal slightly.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured 12oz bottle, fresh 6 pack. Pours an unclouded amber color. Smells of hops and caramel. It has a nice hop flavor that is light to medium body. Not really a good representation of a IPA’s.
