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

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to glass. Aroma and taste are full of lemon and light pithiness. Taste is dominated by sweet malt and sugar with just a bland bitterness. This isn’t good. Sorry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light orange color with floral and pine aroma and a hint of sweet malts. This beer tastes floral, citrus, and pine upfront with a good amount of sweet bready malt, ends well balanced. Full body. A pretty solid ipa that is very drinkable.

Sampled from the bottle at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Pours a clear orange gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a bit of resin with touch of grass and pine as well as a grain backbone. Flavor has sweet grain and resin that comes off a bit syrupy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good, not great. Not bitter or hoppy like most IPAs. Downside is it’s watery and lacks flavor.
