3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I really can’t call this an IPA at 5.5%. Call this beer an IPA light. It has almost all the things you want except the ABV and huge taste.
Very tasty session brew at a decent price , $8 a six.

12oz bottle poured into shaker pint. Bright clear orange body with a white head that leaves sticky lace. Aroma is piney, herbal, and citrusy. Taste is toasted malt sweetness and pine bitterness. True to style mouthfeel: medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, long earthy bitter finish.

Pours Amber with medium tan head out of bottle. Good aroma of pine, citrus, and hops. Flavor of watered down typical ipa. Not a fan of this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle at Frontera Grill, 7/1/14
Aroma: The nose of this onehas some caramel, orange, pine, and a bit of bready notes as well
Appearance: The pour is a clear orange-amber color with a beige head and some light lace
Flavor: The flavor is along the same lines as the nose, with a balanced and solid flavor
Palate: The body is medium, with a solid mouthfeel, and a decent finish
I thought this was a very okay example of the IPA style, but not a great beer. It’s fine, but nothing too exciting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
First impression is malty and caramel. The malt side is well constructed and interesting. It has plenty of bitterness and a nice pine hop profile, with some citrus and maybe tropical fruit. Nothing extreme as an IPA, and usually I’d rather pay more attention to the hops and not get so caught in the malt. Nice beer, but not one I’d go to special effort for.
