2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a decent head and some nice lacing. Aroma of grainy caramel malts and light citrus hops. Tastes of caramel malts up front gives way to a light grapefruit anf floral hop presence. Caramel backbone is strong with a light floral hop bite in the finish. Light to medium bodied with a subtle dryness on the finish. Not much of a hop presence for an IPA.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2012 Sour, vomity grain flavor, vile herbal funk. Blecch. Sampled this at a fest and nearly spit it out. Worst IPA I’ve ever had. An embarrassment to us craft beer geeks in the state of Missouri.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This pours a cloudy orange color w/ a thin white head of fine bubbles. Nose is sort of tutt-fruity hops w/ a bit of pine. A bit sweet and slightly sticky but balanced by earthy hops. Not a bad beer but not really fresh or vibrant tasting, which is what I want out of an IPA.
