3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear, filtered amber orange colored body with a white and tan head. Very lively body, lots of bubbles. Oily hop cone scent, somewhat plasticy and moldy, but otherwise a solid and strong oily hop nose... sweaty and sweet. Tastewise it’s somewhat crisp, though bland, and thin in the body and lacking any depth of flavor. OK overall, lightly sweet, light honey and leafy flavors, but nothing remarkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Shamrock Liquors in Ashland, KY. Pours a slightly cloudy amber-orange color with a medium off-white head that has decent retention. Thick rings of lacing on the glass. Herbal hops and earthy malt in the nose, along with a bit of pine. Medium-bodied and moderately bitter with flavors of spice and floral hops with a fairly solid malt base. The finish is lightly spiced hops with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Fairly straightforward all around.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a transparent golden orange with a stringy-lacing wispy white head. Aroma of fresh pine and grapefruity hops with a hint of sweet caramel. Body starts with pretty good fullness and a decent malty sweetness with some resiny bittering and flavor hops before a mild, bittersweet finish. A pretty smooth and drinkable IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours light copper to gold with thin off white head. Light aroma that is vaguely sweet malts and hints of wet floral hops. It has a pale to nearly grainy malt taste initially. Along with the malts is a floral hoppiness that leads into some biscuit malts. Comes up a bit short on flavor and hops for an IPA.
