3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Colin. Pours clear yellow-gold with a creamy white head. Nice pithy citrus nose, pale bread, pine needles. Medium sweet flavor with mild oily pine, some peach, tangerine, pale bred. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Decent balance on the finish, more pithy citrus, slight grass, pale bread, fine resins. Really nice.

Thanks to Ben at Rudys for this one. Orange/yellow pour with an off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops. Taste fruity hops and a solid malt base. Nice balance of the hops and malt. Easy to drink, it goes down so smoothly. Nice lacing revealed by each sip taken.

Bottle. Pours orange with a slight haze. Mild grapefruit aroma over carbonation typical of the style. Above average ipa that's tasty but nothing spectacular.

Cbc’s pale ale, on tap at the cbc restaurant. This beer is a light yellow in color with a fine head of white bubbles. Nose is strong with evergreen hops. Taste is similar with more hops over a backdrop of medium sweetness. Overall, this is a middle of the road but solid ipa.

Pours hazy copper color with white head. Aroma is citrus, floral hops and pine. Flavor starts off sweet caramel malt followed by citrus flavors and finishing with bitter pine. Bitterness lingers for a bit.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottled 2 days ago into a tulip glass clear yellow gold with an impressive white head.
Aroma is beautifully pine.
Flavor even better than aroma. Clean cut pine trees with slight malts. Truly an incredible IPA. Even with west coast preference (by birth) in beers this brew makes me step back and realize how truly great Midwest brews have become.
Makes many IPAs seem half assed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour form a 12oz bottle. Cloudy orange amber brew with one finger of head that soon passes. Lots of sediment that settles quickly to the bottom of the glass. Excellent hoppy aroma - pine, citrus, grapefruit. Taste is light bodied and hops forward with an excellent citrus hoppiness, a little pine emerges mid swallow, ends with a clean grapefruity finish. A superior IPA, clean, potent and agile.

Bottle from awlcordell. Hazy dingy golden with a nice white head. Citrus fruit in the nose and just a little pale malts. That is pretty much the flavor. Nothing fancy or exotic here, just a nice classic American IPA.
