3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Several pints @ the 4 Queens. Pretty looking beer (or maybe it’s just due to the dearth of good beer in LV). Aroma is piney citrus and orange zest. Taste is initially fresh and nicely citric hop acidity with a smooth caramel note on the finish. As itwarms, it breaks down and gets a little funky, but all in all a nice brew and a bonus point for the location.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden amber color. Thin white head with good retention and great lacing. Pine and citrus aromas. Flavor is grapefruit and pine. Very filling. Mouthfell is medium and a little on the dry side. Not the greatest IPA in the world, but great by Vegas standards.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours golden and clear with a white head which leaves behind drippy rings of lacing.
the nose is really floral... slightly waxy/resinous, grapefruit, pith and mildly sweet pale malt.
the palate is lightly pale malty sweet mixed with flavors of grapefruit pith, lots of resinous pine, orange and a spicy dry finish.
the medium body feels a bit harsh, dry and waxy. 6/3/6/3/12/3.0

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampler @ 4 Queens, Vegas.
pours amber/copper, white head.
Aroma, good hops, but comes out with an aroma that had too much bad medical like smell.
Taste, hops are just strong here, with a great pine forest character.
Finish gives a lingering bitter mouthfeel that come sout being too spicy on the palate.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The brew that hit the palate was no where near the delightfullness that I expected. Sampled straight out of the brew pub at the vegas locaton, this beer has nothing more to offer than a name. Highly disengaged.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in vegas 4 Queens on the Old Strip: Poured a hazy gold color. Smell is pine and citrus. Taste is sweet carmel and hops. A little dry going down, but still very refreshing. The best one they had on tap at the time. Little too pricey as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is my favorite beer at the Chicago Brewing Company at the Four Queens. It’s floral and fruity with plenty of hops added after the boil. The mouth feel is a little light for me and that is it’s weakest point. I’m guessing that the hops are the C variety (Cascade among others.) This is a light refreshing IPA and well worth the coin.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy dark golden with a tiny buubled white head and nice lacing. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel malt, big pine and citrus. Flavor is light caramel malt flavor and a nice complement of NW American hops. Somewhat unbalanced, if I had to put my finger on it I would say that very high alpha acid hops were used in the late kettle additions (Warrior or Columbus).
