4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Looks good. Not a ton of hops in the aroma. This is quite nice. The hops really come out in the middle. Overall a light flavor though. Had on tap at Pizza Port San Clemente.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden yellow in color... Smells like sprite, extremely citrusy aroma... Flavor is sweet and citrusy, like sprite and beer mixed together (rattler in Germany)... Hops are subtle, come through on the palate well... Pretty good beer, dont know if i should
call it that, interesting to say the least...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at home. Funky horse blanket aroma - guessing from the fresh hops. Pours clear copper. Very even, light to medium body finishes with a little bitterness & another "tinge" I can’t put my finger on. Very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared with Travlr in Mahaffey’s. On tap. Golden color with thin-to-no head that sticks to the sides of the glass. Nice easy citrus and hops in the nose. Smells fresh. The taste is more ofthe same with added bitterness that lingers on the back of the tongue. A mild alcohol flavor finds it’s way into the aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Pizza Port OB. Pours a clear golden yellow with a small bubbly white head. Lightly hopped nose with some cereal grain in the mix. Not really fair for me to rate this beer right after I tried a 9.5% double red....

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden pour with big white head. bready malt nose with underlying grassy hops. bitter middle and skunky resiny dry finish. You only got the wet hops in the back palate and otherwise tasted like a generic amber. Not bad but not great either

Draft at Pizza Port. Clear golden pour, small white head. Citrus, grapefruit, hops, and light bread/caramel malt. Nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: The pour is a clear golden color with a finger of white head that exhibits pretty decent retention.
S: Smells incredibly bread forward for an IPA. Some grassy hop notes in the background, but not very fragrant at all. After that, just some more bread.
T: There is at least a little bit of pine flavor in the beer, but still mostly that faint grassy touch to it. Lots of malts which are primarily the bread variety and maybe slightly toasted.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: Not really sure about this beer. As an IPA, it’s certainly awful. Even as a pale ale, it’s not all that good.
