3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was a solid IPA. It wasn’t too harsh nor too dull. I would have no problems drinking a whole bomber by myself. A solid local option for those in southern Indiana, this is the sort of beer that is made by people who care about more than the bottom line.
Aroma / Appearance - The golden carbonated body isn’t that remarkable. Bubbling up from the base with grass and lemon hints it teases the senses. The crisp hops and bright and bitter.
Flavor / Palate - Lemons, oranges, and flat Sprite take a while to settle on the back of the throat. The remaining flavors linger with a light bitterness. The finish is like mouthfeels of dead grass left out in the sun. Overall this is a nice beer but doesn’t quite have the same punch as the truly great IPAs. Even so I would give it a second chance.

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.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy orange with a thin head and pleasant aromas. Citrus and pine with a touch of mango. Things are looking good and then I take a sip. I’m hit by a brash bitterness that lacks any sort of flavor and a grainy and dusty malt presence that is not that great. Darn the nose had me expecting goodness.
