3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a golden yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies to a film and barely leaves any lacing. Streams of carbonation are seen rising.
The smell is lightly hopped up front, still a nice dosage of caramel malts appear.
The taste is mainly sweet, becomes slightly bitter, and has a sticky sweet aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, she sits about a light to medium, comes across fairly sessionable, and has an adequately carbonated for the style and for me.
Overall, this seems to be a bit sweeter than most AIPAs, could be borderline EIPA b/c of strong malty presence I say this is good for the style and good for me, I would have it again.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is barely a decent IPA let alone a "ridiculously tasty" one as the bottle proclaims. This is one of the least hoppy IPA’s I’ve had. Probably wouldn’t drink again.

Bottle. Light copper with small white head. Aroma of floral hops and cereal. Medium body with strong hop bitterness, some malt notes, and a slight soapy finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY Aroma is clean fresh malt and floral hops. Clear medium amber with full rim head and partial cover, one wide band of lace. Taste is traditional IPA, only, in this case, very well done. Somewhat sweet malt swells in the palate, adds floral (European) hops, with both sides joining for a clean finish. Not anything radical, but very well done. Recommended.

Doesn’t have the big hops flavor that I crave in an IPA, but it’s very easy-drinking. It’s more like a session pale ale. I could tear through a half dozen of these while doing yard work on a hot day. Watch it go down here: http://teamchug.com/full-sail-ipa-review/

This came to me as a gift along with a Sam Adams IPA and some other beer I wouldn’t comment on. It is a decent IPA but I probably wouldn’t buy it because I have "house mouth - meaning I compare everything to Stone and this doesn’t make it.

Pour from bottle, golden in color with short but lasting white head. Easy IPA, a bit toned down in Comparison with its heavier hopped counterparts
