3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice IPA from Flat 12, the Half Cycle starts out as a fairly dry IPA offering with a more bitter, grapefruit citrus bite to the hops. This dryness fades somewhat as the beer warms, allowing other elements to show themselves, making the beer feel a little sweeter, though it still tends toward the dry side of IPAs. Overall, a tasty offering and worth a pint.

16oz draft. This is a weak beer. Deep golden pour, very thin white head, only lasts around rim. Nose is all fresh peeled orange/lime. Flavors of fresh citrus, pine, and medium hops. Very light mouth feel, way too watery. Pass.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint can. Pours yellowish amber. Aroma is big citrus peel, spicy yeast with an almost Belgian character, stone fruit, spicy and grassy hops, slight homebrew funk. Taste is oranges and spice, sweet malts, pine, lingering hop bitterness. Too malty for me but fans of hoppy ambers will like this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of bmoosey - pours dirty brown with a small head. I could tell pretty quick that it was going to have an earthy hop aroma and taste. Has a biscuit and nut taste to it. Medium slick mouthfeel. Not too dry.

Sampled at DLD 2014. It poured an amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of pine and light citrus. The taste was of pine with a caramel backend and a medium body with medium bitterness. Nice.

(can - 16 oz) Clear orange with a white head. Mild citrus and bitter hop aroma. Flavor is much the same. Very mild with a hint of citrus and a very lightly bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bronzed body and a fluffy head. This one whips the nose with a sharp grapefruit aroma that veers catty at points. The body continues this pungence with grapefruit blasts and notes of overripe fruit that begin to grow distasteful, then recede and become more palatable. Waves of flavor. Acerbic finish.

Lighter body, massive head. Bitter aroma, sweet, slightly metallic. Piney hops up front, green tea, earthy, resiny. Medium body. Older can maybe?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden pour with a white head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Flavor is similar with a nice hoppy bite to it on the finish. I didn;t think it was quite as hoppy as the description implied but still respectable. I enjoyed it,
