3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer of the month club. Pours orange/amber color with minimal head. Great nose - floral , citrus and pine. Taste is good, but pretty standard...some piney hops, lemon. A touch of bitterness but pretty mild vs other IPAs. Nothing special, but good.

Pours a light orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is odd. Like some stale fruit and citrus hops with pale malt. Taste is super dry and fruity with some malt coming through. Kinda tastes like a fruity cereal. Semi dry finish with a hop aftertaste. OK

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
An IPA that evokes warm summer Caribbean mango flavors. Pine and resin and eve citrus are dialed back allowing a hearty island fruit melanfe to shine through in both aroma and flavor. Pours light golden with a frothy white head. On the thinner side, but is appropriate for the style they are targeting.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking semi-hazy burnt yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing speckling the sidesof the glass.
The smell had a strong presence of sweet caramel malts making up most of the aroma but still allowing a light citrus bittersweetness.
The taste was definitely better as the bittersweet citrus hops come forward more to blend nicely with the caramel malts. A light sweet sticky citrus to caramel aftertaste leads to a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Bitterness is there and rolls nicely over my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA for the taste and palate. Probably could use a bit more in the aroma but could also be a decent food beer as well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours orange-yellow, with a little head. Nothing too great, not too hoppy or too heavy. I don’t really love it all that much, there’s nothing really distinctively great.

Argh. Nose hinted at some floral hops and caramel malts, fairly simple in construction, but also moreso diacetyl. Flavor was dominated by diacetyl with some spicy hops skirting the edges, and a sweet malt base. Misery Bay indeed.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours hazy amber orange, quick head, little lacing, some retention. Aroma of caramel and pine. Taste is earthy bitter, moderately sweet. Light body, medium carbonation, thin mouth feel. Finishes earthy bitter. Tasting notes of grass, caramel, pine, herbs, metallic and resin. An average IPA for me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from ABC. Pours a murky orange with almost no head at all and some very thin lacing. Aromas are pretty basic - bright fruits, pine, grass. Taste is pretty bitter and matches the nose accordingly. Really thin bodied, dry, and pretty unmemorable, though not a total misstep. Probably refreshing after a rough day. Acquire.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Serving: Bottle. Hazy orange pour with a decent off white head. Rather light nose. Bits of citrus and grains. The flavor is equally weak with a bit of stale citrus hops, malt, grain, and light caramel. Thin mouthfeel. Not worth seeking out.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours deep golden brown--looking good so far--but sadly disappoints with minimal aroma, flat flavor profile and thin body and seltzer-like mouth feel. Boring.
