3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent golden copper with white lacing. Smells of mild hops and pale malt. Tastes like it smells with an average (and somewhat thin) mouthfeel. An underwhelming IPA.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Light amber body. Frothy, off-white head. Aroma of citrus, orange, resin, pine, dusty grain. The flavor was moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finished lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Raw, leafy hop taste along with grainy malts. Muddled.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster at the brewpub. Clear orange amber color. Nice spicy hop, some orange-citrus. Medium-plus body. Lighter, crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Thin white head. Leaves solid lace. Moderate bitter taste, minimal sweet. Good IPA. Satisfying big resiny lightly piney hop aftertaste.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught at brewery. Bitter all around. Floral in nose and taste. Great looking pour. Hoppy and hoppy. This is a fantastic randalled and dry hopped beer. Awesome.
Earlier Rating: 3/15/2012 Total Score: 3.5
Draught at brewery. Light orange body. Dusty flavoring. Slightly bitter. Not the hop presence I expected with the AIPA tag. Enjoyable, but I’d like a more pronounced hop profile.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of citrus, caramel and light fruit. Appearance is amber/copper with light bone head. Flavor has sharp hop bite along with a balanced caramel malt base; the finish is long and dry. The bubbles grow on your palate. Good.
