Draft at a local Brazilian joint. A lightly bodied ipa with a decent amount of sweetness from the hops. Some notes of citrus, pine. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nose is of sweet toffee or caramel. Little head. Light bodied and very smooth, like a draft beer. Rich and citrusy hops with a firm malt sweetness serving as a backbone. The bitterness is assertive but not overpowering, by any stretch, and lingers on in a somewhat dry finish. This is a very well blended beer, and is reminiscent of a really good draft IPA.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is cloudy orange. Tan head dies quickly with minimum lacing on glass. Wonderful nose of pine, floral, sugar, caramel, and fresh bakery.
Flavor is of floral hops, grapefruit, and pine. Low carbonation. I love bitter hops, but these are too bitter and overpower the other flavors. This drags the score down.
Also, for this style the alcohol content is too low.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden with a full frothy white head. Aroma is very citrus, with grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel, and grape. Grapefruit is the dominant taste with more orange undertones. The citrus really stands out here. The darker aromas are no longer present. Very bitter aftertaste. Not much of the hoppy IPA bite that I was expecting, and more light and smooth than others of this style. Pretty enjoyable overall, but as an IPA, about average for my tastes.

Can at Wildfire Beer Dinner. Pours a hazy deep orangey-straw color with a medium white head, decent retention and lacing. Aroma is citrusy hops and some malt. Mouth is medium-bodied, decent balance of malt and hops, but not as adventurous in the hoppy side as I like in my IPAs. Still, with a long bitter finish and no real character flaws, it is certainly drinkable.
