Pretty gosh darn boring IPA, nose retains some decent hop character of citrus/spice but nothing too hot.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rustico, Arlington tap: Pours copper color with whitish head. Aroma is grass, earth, bit of pine, and mellow fruitiness. Taste is pretty much up the same alley. Moderate bitterness. Bit of sweetness. A good IPA, but nothing incredible. I don’t complain about the lack of citrus because I like it when things are mixed up.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Smokin Joes. Pours clear orangish copper with small white head. Aromas of sweet bready malts and light citrus. Flavors of some bready sweet malts, light bitterness, but most noticeably missing is the citrus notes I am accustomed to with this hop. Average at best IPA.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not sure what went wrong with this one. Poured a hazy light orange with an off white head. Aroma was grass, light skunk and caramel . Flavor was the same, skunk and caramel. Other battles in the pack tasted fine?

Cloudy, amber-orange with an off-white head. The aroma has earthy, somewhat spicy hops with mild pine. It has a light body with watery texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bitter with a very dry finish.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazed orange amber with some small particles and a slightly off-white head. Mild floral and biscuit aroma. Some floral grassy hop flavors, citrus, with a pale malt base. Honestly, not that impressed with my first one from the variety pack.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy, apricot color, thin head, floaties, fair lacing. Nose is medium dank, passion fruit, peach and piney notes. Mouth is medium bodied, lots of dry bitterness, almost okay mouthfeel, some malt wrapped heavily in tropical fruits and dry bitterness, some astringency toward the finish. Better than its sister-brews. Decent IPA.
