3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
ESBLS tasting. A hazy copper beer that has almost no head. Caramel nose. Grapefruit hops effect in the front of the sip but that soon smoothed out with caramel and pine. Not overwhelming at all but well balanced. Quite pleasant and enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Little Rock Airport: Pours a rich copper with a small white head. Slow CO2 release. Aroma is hoppy with a crisp, citrus and floral spectrum. Palate is acidic on the front, and smooth and slightly bitter on finish. Taste is a nice balance but hop dominated. Smooth with a slight bitter aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at bonefish in Little Rock. No detectable aroma. Flavor is bitter with some piney hoppiness. Some soapiness prevents me from enjoying it. Not sure itís from the beer or the glass.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber color, with a decent head. The aroma is very citrus-based, orange-zest and grapefruit. The taste is of a lot of hops, but nothing in particular stands out. It has a kind of muddied grapefruit taste, some pineiness to it...a bit of a grassy flavor to it. Has a bitter finish, but again not one that particularly stands out. All in all, not a bad IPA but itís not doing anything for me really, and god knows as an Arkansan Iíd love to brag about this beer if possible. Not bad, not great...donít go out of your way for it. Iíd really like to head down to Little Rock and try some of their Two-Term Presidential IPA, thatís for sure! 7.3% alcohol.

sample from the pitcher @ GABF on 9/17/10. orange pour with a thin white head. light citrus hop nose. medium body that falls a bit short in bitterness. light citrus notes, somewhat dry feel. average bitter finish. overall a bland and boring IPA, but not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured with a quick pile-up of airy foam over a rusty orange-amber beer. The aroma is slightly musty, but the first quaff is extremely so. Metallic, grassy and citric, the almost moldy edge detracts, but not enough to keep this from being enjoyable. (#3975, 9/2/2010)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Flying Saucer, Little Rock. After running the marathon here this afternoon, needed something crisp to re-hydrate. Poured a copper/yellow, with little head. Aroma is citrus, and the taste is all grapefruit. Finished very dry. A touch too dry for me, but a decent beer overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, big thanks to byaeger who shared this. Knowing Iím the tickiest of the tickers and needed to put an Arkansas notch on my proverbial bedpost, Brian busted out this bottle during a party at his apartment and I almost regretted choosing not to wear my "Oops I Crapped My Pants" undergarments to the event. Pours a hazy copper color with a well-formed white head that lasts. Very nice tropical fruit aroma, hoppy with some sweet malt poking through. Decent flavor, not too hoppy though. The hops have a mainly citrusy/pineappley flavor to them, and are accompanied by sweet pale and caramel malts. Bitterness is pretty low. Fairly sweet on the palate, not dry at all, with medium body for the style. Drinkable if nothing else. A surprisingly good beer overall, as I expected it to suck and it ended up being decent.
