3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Capones. Cloudy, orange color with a small white head. Aroma is sweet with some grapefruit, pine, and a bit of bready malt. Taste is pleasantly sweet with citrus, some pine, and lots of sugary malts. Sweeter than most IPAs and very refreshing. Nicely done! If Matt keeps this up, I’ll never have to visit Pittsburgh to have some of the City’s best brews!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft @ Capones with the Mad Indian. Pours orange/copper with a two finger thick off-white head. Aroma of citrus, piney hops, and slight fruit. The flavor is citrus, slight fruit, piney hops, and caramel malts. Good brew. I would have liked a little more of a alcohol kick, or a stronger hoppy presence.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, Sharp Edge Creekhouse. Pours a slightly hazy dark copper under a small beige creamy head. Nice citrusy hop aroma with a little bit of a floral note and a little bit of doughy malt. Flavor wise, just your basic IPA, light citrusy hops with minimal bitterness. A slight metallic tinge on the finish. Fairly nice soft carbonation with a slight resiny stickiness on the finish. Not sure why they call this "Big" hop, I didn’t really get an especially aggressive hoppiness out of it. Just your basic IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Capone’s. Very cloudy golden-orange body with a soapy white head. Nice bright citrus and tropical fruit, plus crusty hop aromas. Juicy flavor with notes of grapefruit, toast and a hint of diacetyl. Firm, but mostly clean bitterness. Decent little IPA, despite the excess of particulate matter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium amber color - lively head. Aroma is sweet with a slight hint of grassy hops. Flavor is also rather sweet, some hop bitterness but not much - a little out of balance, though it’s clean and crisp.

On tap at the Map Room. Dark amber body with off-white head. Nice floral hop aroma. Flavor starts off with some sweet caramel malt with a cool, crisp finish consisting of pine, floral hops, and some grapefruit. IPA is not my favorite style but this is quite enjoyable.
