3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 Pale, slight head, golden. Firm shuffle of cheap grapefruit. Over bittered, chewy hopness. Really one sided tang. Dry heaps of hops on the finish but nothing moreish about it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty aroma. Hops are there for sure but malt dominates the aroma. Taste is malty with some hop balance. More piney hops, but sweet malty makes the hop profile hard to determine. Still lots of flavor and maybe not the best ipa, but very drinkable. Maybe a little sticky and sweet palate. Not a beer I would expect to have an overall score under 3??

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours our very foamy and not from user error. Light gold in color. A light grainy aroma is apparent and probably the best part of this beer, although there is limited hop aroma. A bit confused at this point by the IPA designation. Palate is thin and uninspiring. Reminds me a bit of a lawnmower beer with a little more body. Finishes with a slightly syrupy aftertaste. Drank this side by side with Boulder Beer Hazed & Infused which was by far the better beer.

Quite foamy (possibly due to transportation). Hazy. Quite hoppy. Grapefruit rind sits on palate for awhile. Good all around IPA, although seems to be more American than English. Thanks Erin for helping me knock out Jersey!

Poured a gold color with aromas of light pine, citrus, light lemon and some acetone. Flavors follow suit a decent IPA, thanks John for giving this one to me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours a burnt lemon to light orange color with two fingers of head. the beer is hazy. smells of citrus, pine, earthy hops, with a light caramel aroma. the taste is crisp and refreshing, again, citrus and pine hop flavors, with a nice earthy quality to it. sweet malts with a slight bitterness. overall, this is almost a sessionable IPA, very drinkable, and crisp, but not really a great IPA.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Ed, shared @ Bobby’s house. This is a gusher...that ain’t right. Golden pour with a big white head. Smells of celery, club soda, and green apple. Tart, oxidized, and overall not very good on the nose. Flavor is acidic/tart. Lots of celery and vegetal notes. Green apple, club soda, paper, and grass. Fairly bitter, too.

355mL. <<GUSHER WARNING>> Pours amber with big yellow foam. Nose is acetaldehyde, lemon verbana. Taste is minerally, sweet, celery, light bitterness. Riddled with brewing flaws.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pour a clear copper body with a one finger foamy beige head. The nose is more caramel malt than hops, what hops are there are a mix of citrus and floral notes. The flavor is rather harsh and bitter, a little too brash and bitter for my tastes. The sweet caramel malt at the base is there, but it just doesn’t stand up to the huge bitterness. Medium bodied and fairly heavy with fizzy carbonation. Tough for me to down a whole pint of this guy, and I like hoppy beers.
