Pint at Blue Palms Brewhouse. On aroma, sweet.citrusy, orange and grapefruit , clean golden orange color ok head, spotty lace. Bittersweet flavor. Lighter body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, Bittersweet finish. Pretty dull, this doesn’t hold up with all else that is available, call it a lawnmower ipa.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is another case of a beer that smells better than it tastes. Aroma is great citrus and peach. Straw colored in the glass with not much in the way of lacing. The flavor lacks the hop punch expected from the aroma, but is still pretty good. This finish is a little grainy and thin. This would be a good choice for a more sessionable IPA, but not my favorite.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From can compliments of duffmansw. Golden pour with a decent white head. Aroma is pretty faint with mild hop presence and a touch of honey. Taste is malty and toasted bread with some nice hop presence but not very bitter at first. The bitterness is more aparent aftermath. Decent low abV IPA. beer pong? ???
