2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap in a pint glass at Carmody in Duluth. Kind of an orange color. No head or lacing to speak of. Something undesirable about this one. Taste is overly tart and pretty funky. Maybe old which pushes it towards a sour flavor. Lingering unpleasant finish. Avoid this attempt at an IPA.

Sample at Winterfest 2013 - golden coloring with a good amount of booze to keep the party rolling with the moderate hops

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has a nice citrus scent and pours a light gold with not much head. Taste is light grapefruit, but it doesn't come in until the after taste, super light body.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Carmody’s on Nov. 17, 2011. Clear golden pour with a small white head. Kind of an odd aroma and taste - band-aid like. Also a fairly bold hop profile and some biscuit. Just okay.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at ABR this fall. Pours a hazy orange. Very very hoppy aroma. Quite nice! Taste has a little bit of malt in it, but mostly hops and stringent bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at Winterfest. From notes. More of a PA than an IPA...Pours a hazy straw, aroma and flavor are a bit off, lots of straw and hay, with some oxidized hops. Just a touch of hops in there really, and it more just for the bitterness, without any flavor additions. Eh.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Winterfest ’11. Hazy yellow pour with white head. Aroma was weak, with notes of grass and lemon peel, some biscuit. Tate was off, with some slight bitter lemon notes, some grass and hay, finishing slightly bitter but with some weird off tastes.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The fourth beer I sampled at Winterfest 2011 in St. Paul on 2-4-11. Approximately 2 oz. pour. Pours hazy orange with a small amount of beige head. Sweet, soft, gentle hops aroma features an orange scent. “Beery” (i.e., macro pale lager) taste. Dull, dirty flavor of English hops. Lemon and tangerine in the finish. Dirt-bitter aftertaste. Light to medium body.
