3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 12-14-2013 (Bottle from Kroger’s Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This beer forms a small smooth off-white head that mostly diminishes, golden transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus, orange, grapefruit, and lightly earthy. The flavor is very bitter, citrus, earthy, grapefruit, and light malt. The mouthfeel of this beer is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very biter tasting which is too much for my liking. It is a hop head beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is equal parts citrus hop and sweet caramel malt. Flavor is mostly malty. Large caramel malt presence but way low on hop bitterness. Hops can be barley detected after some swallows. This was not a real high octane IPA. way to much malt presence and where are the hops?

Very bitter IPA with no aroma. Malty with the bitterness but not balanced in anyway. Nice fading head. Sample from brewery.

16 oz can. The can might be a bit old, but never the less, It’s kinda garbage.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle] Pours a dark shade of gold with a nice ring of foam on top. Aroma is sweet and very wort-like. Taste is also reminiscent of wort, with unfermented sugars, caramel and bready malts coming out prominently. The hops are herbal and included hints of grass and spearmint. Overall bitterness level is low. Interesting. It took me the whole 12 ounces to tell whether I liked it or not. Not bad, but probably not something I would buy again.
