3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the source. Clear gold. Aroma is very sweet. Malty pale malts, sugar. Low IBU, light mild bitterness. Sugar coated grapefruit, dried out pine cone, way more on the sweet malty side. Candy type finish indeed. Drink this one before the bolder more aggressive IPA’s

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer is medium copper in color, darker than normal for Cellarmaker, though absolutely within the normal range for the style. The head looks pretty normal, medium in size, white in color, some lacing, good retention. Looks like a classic IPA. The aroma has some mild crystal malt character, again unusual for Cellarmaker but not for IPAs. It’s just a touch of bubblegum and caramel, maybe a mild toasty, doughy note, a little bit of biscuit. Hops are a bit mild. Pine, grapefruit, orange, honeysuckle. It’s missing most of the tropical fruitiness of most of their hoppy stuff. The taste has mild caramel malt sweetness with medium bitterness. Some pine resin and grapefruit pith. There’s some nice orange flavor in there, but this is definitely living up the billing as an old school IPA. Fairly dry. It’s still a well made IPA, just a bit boring compared to their normal stuff, at least for anyone who has had plenty of other IPAs. Light mouthfeel. Easy to drink. No booze. Some hop oiliness. Nice enough beer.
