3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Total Wine-McLean, 1/30/13
Aroma: The nose has some sweet grapefruit, orange, some herbal notes, and a bit of tea
Appearance: Pours a hazed dark orange color with a thick frothy of white head and fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is a little sweet, it has bready and herbal flavors, and a medium dry bitterness
Palate: The body medium, it has a fairly creamy feel, a bit of stickiness, and a mid-dry finish
This is a pretty solid IPA, it is not the best in the style, but it is more than adequate. I would certainly drink this one again. There’s some pretty good stuff going on here, and plus, it is (partially) for a good cause!

Straw appearance, not too hazy. Good head. Orange and pineapple aroma. Funk taste. This may be skunked. I’ll have to try this again

"A pretty slick easy drinking and low abv ipa. Some pone spice and soft citrus fruit combine with a pretty hearty malt backbone. Probably good really fresh. Had at about two months old."

From bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a huge fluffy off-white head that lasts and lasts and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. There’s also a good bit of sediment in the glass. Aroma is fruity with citrus and resin. Taste is fruity and citrus, not sweet, but certainly not bitter either. It’s got a nice flavor profile but could use a little more something. Easy to drink. Sessionable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange-gold pour, off-white head.Interesting homey aroma of carrots, sweet potatoes, orange, pineapple, and bitter hoppiness. Flavor is also of carrots, light grassy hops. Sort of odd. Not sure if I got a bad bottle.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden amber in color with a medium, fizzy looking white head. The aroma contains mostly citrus, with grapefruit, pineapple, and orange, with some milder pine and caramel tones. The taste is very dry and rather bland. The citrus impressions serve more as background. It is replaced with a graininess that is mixed with some pine, with is found throughout. The fruitiness is found more at the end. Aftertaste is a short orange and pineapple. More light in body, with a slick texture, with average carbonation. I’m disappointed in this one.

Bottle - Lots of fresh pine and grapefruit, with a sweet caramel backbone. Cloudy copper with a thin beige head. Tastes just as it smells whit have very light bitterness. Well balanced and leaning towards sweetness, a very easy drinking IPA.
