2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Growler @ Bus. Thanks, John. Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Some decent grapefruit on the nose, but lots of vegetal aromas. Bread, orange peel, and some pine. Flavor is bitter pine and citrus rind. Fair amount of celery and vegetal hops. Moderate bready malt sweetness and a touch of peach.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On da bus @ RBSG 2014 between the Morgan Street and 4 Hands stops: As rating on a moving bus can do not much in the way of notes... "Juicy, resiny, biscuity, piney hops. Lively sharp mouth feel." I really liked this. Of course after the sucky brews at Morgan Street about anything would have been greeted happily.

This is golden orange with a creamy foam head. It has a pine hope nose and big, earthy bitterness and a simple sweet malt character. It is unexeceptional and very much down the middle for an IPA but it gets the job done pretty well.

Nose is very floral with some cracker. Taste is slightly watery and thin. Not much else going on. Kinda flat.

Samples from a growler, thanks! Pours a clear yellowish gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice grassy and citrus hop with a bit of earthy grain. Flavor has citrus and pine with a hint sweet grains backing.

On tap at Legends south. Pours clear golden with a thick lacy white head. Aroma of citrus hops, very sweet. Flavour is hoppy, but not thick. Finish is smoothly bitter and clean. So very refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap @ Confluence Brewing / Des Moines IA --- Clear, medium gold, good thick rim head, hanging streamers of lace. Taste is malt that clicks in a bit of caramel as it enters the palate, then adds citrus hops in the finish. The finish lingers, finally allowing a bit of malt to re-emerge. A simple, but well-conceived IPA.

Orange beer with a hint of haze. Sticky white head. Nice sharp nose of pine and citrus peel. There is a strong hop bitterness with lots of red grapefruit, Mandarin orange, apricot and a sharp pine bight. There is enough caramel sweetness underneath to support all the hops. Very big for an ipa, and very tasty.
