4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pint on tap @ Foothills. Lunch with Moms. Corbett is a great wait person. And a cutie pie.
Pour: Orange hazy pour. Thick collar of short lived foam.
Aroma: Lemony zest nose. Incredible fresh hoppy aroma.
Taste: Fantastic! A fresh mouthfeel, medium body balances well with bitterness. Incredible with my Reuben and fries. Enjoyable not-too-sweet caramel body. The malt was just chewy enough.
Overall: A great "middleweight" IPA. A lot of folks are dissing this brew. To each his/her own. Perhaps I just picked the right delivery vehicle. On tap from the brewery seemed to work out incredibly well. Great brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy dark medium orange with a half finger white head. Head retention is not that good with just some mild lacing.
Aroma is typical of what I would consider a classic East coast IPA. Very heavy on the earthy, piny hops with a healthy dose of malt thrown in for good measure. A touch of caramel and biscuit.
Flavor is hop-heavy from the get go with pine and tree bark and lots of bitterness. A bit of a soapy flavor that then transitions into caramel and biscuit. Bitterness is present throughout and lingers long into the finish. Mouthfeel is a touch on the watery side finishing a bit sticky.
Overall, this beer isn’t bad but there is nothing at all to make it stand out. In this day and age where everyone has an IPA, this one is just mediocre.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not my favorite IPA but not bad. Pours a slightly hazy orange. Small, watery head. Sweet on the nose. Taste is pretty hoppy with grapefruit and some perfume notes. Malt is a bit sweet and finish is sort of resiny and mouth puckering. Nothing compared to the Hoppyum.

Clear golden color with a white head and lacing down the glass. Taste like eating a big sativa nugget with citrus notes busting out of the nose.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Smells strong and sweet. Pours thick, dark yellow with a little sediment. Taste is complex, starts smooth but quickly becomes and finishes bitter and strong. I am not a fan of the IPA style, but this is good to taste, not something I would buy again though.
