3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber-red colour. Woody, bitter orange aroma with earthy, brown sugar malts. Quite sweet on the palate, sticky crystal malts dominate the woody, earthy hops. Bump up the scores a bit if you dig lots of crystal in your IPA.

How do you rate a beer that gives you exactly what you expect from an American IPA? There’s nothing special about it, but there’s no disappointment either. Floral hoppy aroma, strong hoppy flavor complemented by sweet and fruity maltiness. Good aftertaste loaded with bitterness.

Aromas of citrus, lightly spicy, caramel and a it has a light earthiness to it. Tastes of citrus, lighter caramel with a lightly spicy finish. I expected more of a bitter bite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is kind of a run-of-the-mill IPA courtesy of City Beverage in Winston-Salem. After popping the twist-off cap, this beer pours a dark amber/orange with a very thin off-white head. Very little lacing. Aroma of hops and light citrus. Medium-bodied and a borderline thin at times, with flavors of hops, citrus and some malt. The finish is lightly bitter. A little on the simple side overall but nothing offensive.
