On tap @ GABF. Amber pour with a white head. Aroma is really, really grassy. Toasted bread, water, pine, and caramel. A bit of cardboard, too. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, bread, and toast. Bitter pine, grass, and grain husk. Light floral and citrus hops, water, and cardboard.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - pours copper with a small head. Has a slight pine aroma and an earthy taste. Somewhat of a malty backbone and a dry finish. Not spectacular but the six pack will do for the weekend.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wowzers, I finally finally get to try this. It has been on my ‘wants’ list for years. Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a nice clear gold body that supports a light tan head. The mild aroma offers up snippets of spicy hops, a touch of grapefruit and then just a hint of sweet malts. The taste has a nice bitterness that is mostly grapefruit and orange like citrus hops and then to midway and into the finish a sliver of malt sweetened citrus hop flavor comes to the surface to round this out with a touch of balance. This is a pretty darn tasty IPA.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Damgoode pies. Pours dark orange with a thin white head. Not much on the nose but a bit of pine that fades real quick. Not much on the tongue. I’ve never been this bored by an IPA.
