3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange amber body. Nose shows off some orange, lemon and grapefruit--not much else but some pale malts. Flavor is similar, but a bit more muted as the citric hops are left hanging. Medium bodied. Appropriate carbonation. Thin finish. Ok.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy with some grapefruit tones. Flavor is solidly hoppy, big grapefruit flavor. Nice bitterness in the finish. Could use a little more malt to round out the finish. Overall, very solid IPA, works quite well for a hot day.

16 oz can. Pours a very murky golden orange with hop particles, thick off white head, and fantastic lacing. Nose is mostly caramel malt with a little piney and muted citrus hops. The hops come through more with the taste. PIneapple, citrus, pine. Real strong bitterness, borderline palate wrecker.

On tap at capones, pours cloudy bright orange with medium off white head. Aromas and taste of bitter hops, pine, strong grains, caramel, light malts. Finish had a strong citrus hop bite. Good ipa to pair with food especially spicy stuff due to the bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 ounce can. Nice carbonated pour. Like Cut Throat, malty. Big malt presence. Some citrus. Bit of sweetness that gets a little coying. Overall, decent and drinkable for this particular take on the IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very hazy orange straw color. Thin white head that stayed the whole glass and left some nice lacing. Malt and some hops in the aroma. Very creamy mouthfeel and it tastes like this was whole cone hoped. Very grassy, earthy characteristics.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep orange pour. Aroma is pretty strong of caramel malts and some moderate grapefruit hopping. Caramel comes across fairly thick in the flavor as well, along with an astringent grapefruit pine bitterness. Rustic, grassy character. Jello-like on the palate. Not bad, just not that enjoyable.
