3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had a few of these while passing through Wichita this week. These were bottle pours at the restaurant. A copper brown ale with off white head, aroma of crisp hops, citrus and floral, taste is moderately malty with a fine hops forward flare and excellent bitter finish. A few of the glasses warmed to room temperature and the malt really came forward, very full bodied and tasty. I am a little surprised to see that this is an IPA as I thought it was an APA and a fine one at that. Samll difference and while it may be on the gentle side of an IPA it is an excellent brew.

This poured an amber color with an off white head. Aroma was grassy and floral hops with light grain and toast behind. Flavor was similar, lightly bitter, but caramel sweetness overpowers the hops taste. Meh.

12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a slightly hazy golden amber with good carbonation and a small off white head. Aroma of toffee and hops. It has a medium body with a smooth moth feel. Flavor is toasted malt, caramel, a hint of pine and biscuit then a light citrus note shows. In the after taste the citrus comes out more with some bitterness leaving it with a dry feel. Overall its a tasty well balanced IPA.

Hops and apple with a distinct grassy taste. Fairly bitter. Not my favorite style but was not impressed.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is roasted malts, some woody hop notes, a little citrus. The flavor is bready/toasty malts, pine, spicy. The bitterness is harsh and gives any astringent perception.

12 oz bottle to glass. Recd in trade from RobertDale had rift after a 3F alpha king. Only aroma I got was alight barnyard which I actually kinda like. Pour was a clear light amber. Taste was grapefruit and hops with bitter hops at end that last. Slightly too much bitter for me but it wasn’t overpowering. Thanks Bob

12 oz bottle-Copper pour w/o much head. Malty aroma. Mild hop bite up front, somewhat metalic flavor to it. Had some malt on the finish. Smooth & easy to drink, pretty basic brew. I would not call this an IPA, sure seemed like a Pale Ale to me.
