3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle poured into pint glass. The color is good, the aroma is good, just something amiss with the flavor. It is an okay hoppy beer but nothing special.

Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma is sweet with a bit of hop character. Taste up front is oddly sweet, not too hoppy but bitters from the hops well at the end. Average IPA

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at one of the bars at MSP. The beer pours a clear copper color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of hops, grainy malt and a touch of pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a short resiny hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

12 oz bottle. From a trade with deyholla. Thanks Derek!
Clear amber colour with a small frothy white head.
The aroma is sweet pears... very strong sweet pear aroma. Mild bitterness there too. The flavour is fruity and sweet. Moderate bitterness and sweet maltiness. Sweet IPA.

Bottle at Andyís while watching football with him, Pearl, Max, and Paul. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Soft malt and a bit of sweetness and a touch of hops. Malt, a bit earthy, sweet malt, not much else. Finishes with a bit of earthy bitterness. Decent I guess.

Bottle. Caramel, tree bark, tootsie roll, and light butterscotch nose. Medium copper color with a one-finger creamy head. Rough malty initial, with some bitter and candyish notes / mild and balanced...and not a lot else. Medium body. Okay. Very mild all around.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a red-orange, clear color. A bit of white head. Aroma is resinous, with some sweet malt. Flavors of pine resin again, and fresh bread. Very doughy for an IPA with a fairly malty finish. I would probably consider this more of a regular pale ale, but I do find it pretty enjoyable.
