3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a clear yellowish orange, little to no head. Aroma slight crisp pine, lemon. Body quite lively, maybe a bit full. Finish full, smooth, with just a hint of resinous bitterness, short-lived at this. Fine, not amazing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Southpaw in SD. Pours a hazy golden with small white head. Bretty aroma with hay, spices, honey, light pine. Flavor follows as a combination of wit, tripel, and IPA. Light spice and bretted wit flavor, some yeasty honey and clove, and a crisp pine hop finish. Light bodied, high carbonation, really crisp. This turned out nicely for a style that to me is mostly meh. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I think they are doing themselves a disservice throwing the IPA moniker in there because it does not come across as an IPA, more of an "American Wit" if there were such a name. It’s very appetizing looking, light in color and refreshing looking, with nice, filmy head that leaves some lacing. The nose and flavors are light citrus, the yeast adds a nice breadiness and the coriander and orange peel come through with the traditional with character, The increased hopping level makes it stand out as american but is not going to satisfy the hop head looking for a big NW IPA. Very good beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tulip. Nose of wheat and malts with a hint of citrus. I didn’t notice any hops. Pours a cloudy pale yellow, had zero head and just a tiny amount of lacing. An unusual tasting beer, I wouldn’t think this was an IPA had it not be labeled as such.

Poured into a shaker from bottle. Pours a cloudy straw yellow. Best way to describe is a wheat trying to be an ipa. Not bad very light

Very faint hop presence, soapy, grassy lemon peel flavour, very thin, decent smell, looks like cloudy lemonade, small white head. Disappointing.
