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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Tulip glass.
Very little aroma. Some floral and citrus notes. Nothing stands out. Fairly weak bouquet.
Pours orange. Hazy. 2 fingers head. Lasting, dissipates slowly. Not an inviting appearance.
Taste is bitter. Some light citrus notes. Nothing stands out.
Mouthfeel is typical for an IPA.
Overall, not worth buying again.

Draft at the brewpub. It poured a hazy orange color with a thin white head. The aroma was of grassy notes with some faint citrus. The flavor was a little bitter with a somewhat dry finish.

Really surprised by this IPA. I haven’t always been impressed with the other offerings by this brewer. Pours amber with a frothy head. Tasty.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours brownish orange with small white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, citrus, and floral hops. Taste is malty with a hint of floral hops and mild bitterness for an IPA. Very middle of the road IPA that just isn’t hoppy enough for the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample for the Augusta beer fest. Poured a hazy yellow orange color with a smaller white head. Aroma was citrus, pines and hops. Wasn’t very hoppy. Metallic, earthy and pines in the flavor. Malts and caramel in the backbone. Well balanced, kind of watery. Ok for the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Hazy, unfiltered orange-tan. Creamy off-white head. Some pineapple, grapefruit in the aroma. Not so impressive for the style. Lacks malt depth. Toasty, soapy, earthy. More of an APA than anything else. Sessionable, but quite fishy, toasty. Woody, orange tones. Rather simple and unimpressive.
