3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours a hazy slightly darker golden color with a small white head. Aroma is hops, caramel, touches of other malts. Flavor is a pretty solid hop taste, with touches of caramel and a sweet finish on the palate. Not a bad one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Floral nose, some grapefruit, a little butter, some caramel notes. Pours golden with a thin head. Up front the flavor is a little muted there is some bread and caramel with light hoppy notes, but the finish is where the niceness picks up. Dry weedy and herbal in the finish it lingers for a little while and is the best part of the beer. Body is a a little thin.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours gold in color with a foamy white head. Citrus, a little ripe fruit, and a touch of malt in the nose. Medium carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Malt, citrus, light floral notes, and fruit sweetness on the palate. Medium finish. A pretty good IPA and what I consider one of their best beers.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hops on the nose. Light to slightly medium bodied. Hops on the front of the palate but when it starts to leave it gets the hell out of there with not much aftertaste which is why I have to hit it a bit. It’s trying but when you are trying to do what west coast ipas are doing you had better know your stuff.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear pale gold. Light citric hop aroma. Flavor was clean malts, a touch of biscuit, and a citric, grapefruit hop finish. Tight and clean, nicely done. The fact that my wife ordered a pint of this as opposed to the wit is indicative of just how well done this was. Her favorite beer of the trip, and my favorite at the brewery as well.
