3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice color amber red. Nice spicy hops. A little thin on the palate. Not sure if the carbonation level is right. The malts are outshone by the hops as well. Not well balanced. Good beer not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear rich amber color with a decent size light tan head with heavy lacing. Aroma is a pleasant combination of light citrus and fleshy fruits intermixed with a light caramel malt. Taste is moderately bitter decently balanced with a malty fleshy fruit sweetness. Light bitterness and sweetness linger in finish. Solid IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a pint glass out of a growler.
Pours a nearly clear medium copper with a one finger white head. Some light lacing on the sides of the glass along with a small layer of fizz on top of the beer.
The aroma is much more Earthy than fruity with tree bark, soil, and an overall dank quality about it. A touch of pine is thrown in but the aroma is far from piny.
The flavor continues this earthy character. I pick up on the dankness much more in the flavor along with more pine and tree bark. There is perhaps a touch of overripe orange but the fruit is very understated. Bitterness is on the high side with a good mouthfeel and just a touch of stickiness on the finish.
Overall, a good IPA but there is really nothing about it that makes it stand out from all of the others out there. Good to drink but forgettable afterwards.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy orange with lasting head and good lacing. Aroma is fairly strong citrus zest and pine. Taste is more malt forward. OK, but not a great IPA in my opinion.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy, pale, golden yellow, with minimal head. Aroma has some hops and some citrus zest. Flavor is very grassy, the hops are pretty muted, and there’s a fairly sweet undercurrent. Not one of the better IPAs I’ve tried.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the (and I’m ashamed to admit I was there- work function) Dave Mathews Band Caravan thing. 7-15ish-11 on tap. Poured a pure gold with a thin white head. A middle of the road IPA with a very simple hop profile. In the 100 degree heat a good IPA should have come across thicker and almost over bearing. This was a much better than the BMC swill those around me were drinking, but after 1 I switched to a little sumpin sumpin. Just sayin.
