3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle 3-4 months old. Pours deep orange with a frothy off white head. Aroma has some piney and a touch of citric hops, some definite oxidation going on. Sweet caramel notes and some butterscotch. Flavor is even more oxidized. That’s front and center, oxidized hops, some notes of citrus, faded along with caramel and candy sweetness. Finishes creamy and lightly bitter. Medium body and a soft carbonation. New to the Chicago market and stale bottles? Bad start

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.

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.

Piney hop aroma with hints of citrus. Mild. Nice orange amber color. Tan head holds well. Rich caramel malt,full flavor. Piney hops fade in and then intensify on the finish. Bitterness is not overly harsh. Hints of citrus at the end also. Pleasantly surprised.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Spuyten Duyvil. Golden good soft thin head and lace. Aroma is easy candy citrus and light pine hops n a light dry grain spine. Flavor goes mono dimensional bitterness and grain simple sweetness but also lightly metallic. Feel is nice and soft with some cooling but then that metallic thing. Has potential.
