2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Meh. Not that great. Standard appearance. Light nose. Overly malty and hopping to mild for an ipa. Ok taste but just not much of an ipa in my book. Also served warm at a temperature i would expect a stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap] Light orange colored pour with a small cap of head. Nose is of resinous hops and citrus rinds. Caramel malts, piney hops, dry grass, lemon notes and some floral hints in the flavor. Dry and bitter finish. One of the better beers I tried in the sampler.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pours hazy orange, medium white head, dissipates quickly, good lacing. Aroma is light caramel, pine, not much going on here. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, not much going on here either, harsh finish. Medium body. Meh. I assume it was not fresh, but it is what they were pouring on tap...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. #847. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Murky golden brown colour with a huge foamy off-white head.
Yeast, fruity and piney hops, mild bitterness and dill pickles in the aroma.
The flavour is a bit... off? Yeast, dark bitterness and mushy hoppiness.
Not exactly very enjoyable. Strange. I was looking forward to pop this one open...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a clear orange/gold color with an off-white head. The aroma was very hoppy with some sweet malty notes. The taste was of piney hops and malts. It had a medium body. The finish was hoppy with a lingering citrus aftertaste. One of my favorites.

Nice citrus aroma up front. Then a good citrus and slightly piney taste. A good and not overwhelming after taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Its a good one, smicoe and amarillo dominate the smell while it is a herbal yet citrusy flavor with a decent malt backing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Earthy and floral hops with a good dose of caramel malt backbone. Nothing super special but quite drinkable.
