3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Taps 25, Lansing. Hazy, dirty medium orange body, thick puffy cream head. Piny nose; also citrus rind. Sweet, citrusy body, with strong tangerine/orange notes (including pulp and rind), almost candied. Fair bitterness, just enough to balance the citrus sweetness. Solid body, well-balanced and crisp. Good IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
It poured a hazy amber color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, toast and some florals. The taste was of medium bitters and a touch of sweetness while the citrus shined through. Very well done.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Beer Bistro. Cloudy copper color with a white head. Grapefruity hop aromas. Grapefruit and tropical fruit hops nicely offset by the caramel malt backbone. A nice IPA...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the annual CBS picnic, and self served to clear plastic with a hazed, orange/amber hue, a thick amount of creamy head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was light grain, citrus as grapefruit and some orange, light sweetness, and a touch of resin. The flavor presented an earthy, pungent, and very lingering hop bitterness, but enough malt to smooth the edge a bit. Well carbonated, and medium bodied, it paired well with the spicy picnic faire, and was my IPA choice of the day.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
I was nervous after the last exprience with this brewery but this one actually works well. A bit of bubblegum hops is always fun. Finish is a little piney and sticky. Some caramel malt and a light chewy grain sweetness working in the background.

Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not too bad. Ive had some good beers from finch and this is another.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample: STILL have some notes from the 2011 Midwest Brewers Fest. A little darker and cloudier than the Uinta WYLD I just had. Thin, clingy head of foam. Smell shows some good Cascades, a little citrus and pine. Good citrusy hop taste to it too. Caramel malts and crystal involved in sending it down very nicely. A lot more hop in the backstop.

can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber with a bubbly ivory head, streaks of lace. Taste is malt with a dash of caramel that grows into the palate adding solid citrus hops on the swallow, then moving back toward the malt as the finish fades. A polite but solid IPA.
