1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
From the bottom of the keg on tap at vintage estate. Big IPA aroma. Looks like pale lager and not hazy as described. Creamy big head. Yes, big citrus ipa flavor. Flat, no co2. Flavor is fresh ipa impact. If you are into IPA, ignore my numbers, this stuff is terribly on style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle from Gaswerkz Columbus, pour is a nice orange color as far as i could tell amidst all the lights bouncing off the mardi gras beads, nose is hoppy, but taste is well balanced.. almost malty finish which may be due to age, but still a very tasty IPA

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to the chaps who let me try this one. You know who you are...Nose is full of fresh hops. Some grassy, citrusy, and pine-laden hops with some light fruity tones in the background. Spigot water and fresh outdoor aromas waft out of this brew. The taste is very similar with a slight caramel malt to help balance out the fresh, in your face hops that make this one so good. Balanced and an American hop lover’s dream.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This IPA was great. Aromas held promise, giving off a pungent aroma that was floral and spicy. Hops were rich and bittersweet, while a near-perfect malt finish created the perfect balance.
