2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Standard IPA. Nothing about this beer excites me enough to try it again. A little too thin for an IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap: Pours a deep golden, almost brown color with some nice lacing and good head and retention. There was a wall of head along the shaker throughout much of the beer. The aroma was suprisingly hoppy I thought with some rather sweet aromas. (Although it was hard to tell because the entire brewpub smelled of hops and barley) There was a very good flavor and it was a tasty beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear copper color with off white head that laced the glass. Aroma is dominated by floral hops and a hint of alcohol. The hop flavor and bitterness is well balanced a touch of caramel sweetnes. Bitterness is up front mostly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is a full copper color with ruby highlights to it. It is brilliantly clear and is topped by a pale wispy head that has quite a bit of staying power to it. The aroma is an enticing mixture of grapefruit, bergamot, tangerine, and a hint of pine. It has a smooth creamy mouthfeel to it and it finishes with a solid bitterness that is intermingled by notes of pine and bitter orange peel. This beer is slightly malty sweet, which accentuates the citrusy hop character quite well. I really like the sharp biting character of this beer, and it is pretty light on the palate as well.

This turned out to be my favorite of the day at Four Peaks.
Golden yellow with a good head and lacing.
Nice crisp hop and malt aroma.
Flavor was hopy but not over the top. Citrus on the finish.
This is a good easy drinking I P A and I ended up having two more pints for the road.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at the brewery. A nice slightly hazy IPA (I think the one I had a different name). Floral/piney noce, big grapefruit. Amber. Great head retention and lacing. Fruity and enjoyable...so good I bought a growler.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewery. Fresh hoppy aroma - grassy and floral, fair amount of fruity esters as well. Clear amber color, thin off-white head. Great hop flavor, quite floral and fruity, grassy too. Just enough malt to make it balanced, the malt doesn’t stand out, but it is there. Moderate bitterness, appropriate for the style. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite a nice IPA, nothing over the top, just a nice hoppy, bitter beer.
