3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2013 Strong hop aroma and taste... Good bitterness...nice session beer loaded with hop flavor... Very little to offer after initial nose and taste... There is a lingering bitterness but something missing in the middle and end of this beer... Not bad... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent aroma and appearance, good hops for IPA, but back end holds a subtle citrus-sour tanginess that lingers through the finish...an aquired taste compared to a more traditional IPA

March 28, 2013 - on tap at brewery. Clear golden orange pour with limited head. Mild hoppy and malt aroma. Taste was a little bit of grain and malt with a mild floral hop bitterness. Thin body and clean finish.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear brown-gold with a healthy head that disappears quickly. Lovely caramel under hops aroma. Sips clean and light with a light carbonation. Flavor mellows toward a light hoppy aftertaste. A light touch overall and very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a nice light copper with minimal head. Aroma is a blast of hops. Flavor is great hop taste but not over-powering. Quite refreshing, sessionable and good.

Pours light golden quickly dissipating head, lots of lacing. Nose is muted. Aromas are biscuits, some floral and light fruit, with a light grassy finish. Tastes are light sweet and medium-light bitter. Body is light with lively carbonation. Great sub-5pct beer!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyable. Hoppy yet not overbearingly so. Hoppy on front, smooth ending. Appropriate session IPA.

12 oz. bottle. Served in a snifter. Pours a medium gold color. Grapefruit and (dare I say it?) body odor. Moderate carbonation. Flavors of grass, pine, and grapefruit--no shocker there. Dry from start to finish. I appreciate the sessionable nature of the beer, but the cost is that itís one-dimensional. All things considered, Iíd prefer to drink one of Founderís Centennial IPAís, over two of this brew.
