Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Fruity, grassy, and piney hops, medium malty sweetness, and medium bitterness. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the source.
Comes to the table a lightly hazy medium golden color with a smallish off white head that leaves lots of lace on the way down. Brown sugar and brown bread make up the bulk of the aroma with a light earthy hop and light fruity ester providing balance. The flavor is sweet up front with a solid shot of sugary caramel sweetness. Light earthy hop and light fruit round this one out. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. Decent brew, I could drink it, but would choose something else first.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden pour with a sticky white head that leaves lace all over the glass. The nose is quite piny. Some fairly prominent pine, orange and tropical fruit over a fairly unusual vanillaish character on the back. The palate is fairly sweet up front with a lightly honeyish flavour. Unsurprisingly, it’s a lot sweeter than the regular IPA and the hops could definitely be ramped up in here, but it’s a fairly nice brew nonetheless.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ the pub. Clear copper color with an off-white head. Huge grapefruit flesh and juice aroma that pretty much covers all of the malt component. Short grapefruit citrus start to the flavor. Caramel malt middle. Citrus rind and pith finish. Mild to moderate bitterness. Semi-dry with a light-medium body. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap-pours a patchy off white head that laces and copper/red color. Aroma is sweet tangerine/pink grapefruit/lemon. Taste is sweet tangerine/pink grapefruit/lemon, then pine/resin hops with a dry/grapefruit rind bitter (Amarillo, simcoe, galena) is more than some but there are a lot more hops. Mouth feel is grainy and slightly slick. Medium towards full body. Soft carbonation.
