3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from The Perfect Pour, Elkridge. Faintly opaque pour, deep orange. Nice filmy head and carbonation, but you can tell from the nose that this one’s past its prime. Gotta rate the bottle on hand (but why do craft beer places not refrigerate IPAs - seriously?). Might have started off malt forward anyways, for all I know, but it’s certainly sweet and chewy for the most part. Bitter, leafy tea dregs is what the hops have been reduced to. Notes of citrus in there if you try hard, I suppose. Nothing very fruity or fresh about it at all. I’d certainly like to try a young bottle at some point.

Draft at Two stones Newark. Pours light orange with a thin white head. Grapefruit notes on the nose. I get a bit of sweet malt on the tongue along with some grapefruit notes. Taste lingers a bit. Eh! Kind of one note!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: On tap at Fireworks. It pours a deep gold color with a small, off-white head. The nose is lighter than expected with lots of herbal hop notes. The flavor has a good bit of sweetness with lots of herbals. It’s medium bodied with higher carbonation leading to a sweet then dry finish. Rather tasty.
