3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: August 23, ’12.
From a 12 ounce bottle into a shaker pint glass.
A: Not a strong nose, but earthy and grassy hops with just a bit of pine and a touch of sweet malt.
A: Pours a clear orange-tinted amber with two fingers of off-white head. Good retention with some decent lacing.
T: Piney, resiny and slight grapefruit upfront, finishes with a bit of sweetness and very little aftertaste.
P: The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation.
O: Reminds me of DFH 60-M. A very solid flavorful everyday IPA.

Pretty good IPA. Not sure what the hop profile is, but it had a bit of spice to it. Overall worth trying.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. "Boned" on: 07/08/13. A slightly hazy copper pour with a thick beige head. Pine, oranges, grapefruits, zesty citrus rinds, brown sugar, and caramel feature prominently in the aroma. Grains become much more apparent with a little warmth. A relatively thin palate. Fairly watery. The taste starts with a touch of wheat and some sweet graininess. Kinda biscuity in the middle. Oranges, grapefruits, and plenty of bitter rinds at the end. Hints of spice throughout. Overrated.
