3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is super citrusy with some mild dank notes and butterscotch. The flavor is citrusy and dank with some butterscotch sweetness. It finishes dry and bitter. Nice, but I could do without the butterscotch.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2014 A decent IPA, one of Golden Road’s better offerings but not quite top-notch. I prefer this to both the old and new Point The Way. Nice grapefruit aroma. I’ve found it to be a bit better on tap than canned, but perhaps that’s a freshness issue.
2014 update: Drinking a can, about 2 weeks old. Seems like a nice improvement over last year’s version. Bigger, fresher hop flavor than I recall. Citra, Centennial and Nelson come through. Pour is light gold, very transparent. The last time I revisited Point The Way it was also pretty good and I feel like Golden Road might be stepping their game up.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden, lighter pour with a bit of foam. Sharp hoppy aroma with a bit of rock candy sweetness. Lighter in body than I generally prefer. Kind of piney and medium bitter.
Would I drink again? probably.
Would I buy/order again? not likely, too many other go to IPA’s that make a bigger statement and are much more balanced.

Golden, light white head. Very carbonated. Somewhat like a real bitter coors. Nice that it is in a can. There are better IPAs out there, as there are worse.
