3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’m not a big fan of this beer. It smells intoxicating, but the taste is ...soapy. I know I use that a lot to describe this kind of beer, but thats what it tastes like to me.....nice color, great foam.....and the taste isn’t bad...but its just something off-setting to me!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with a thin, whispy white head, some lace. Smells of faint, ripe citrusy, very slight nutty scent. Tastes earthy, slightly nutty, slightly astringent, semi-flowery and citrusy hoppy. That’s right, I said it. Soem sweet malt flavors linger. Medium body, good carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, light golden in color. Slight haze. I have seen this IPA really extolled in a lot of Mags, which makes me wonder. it’s a nice IPA but no way best in class. Modest Head, very little malt or flavors overall, no Hops odors, more like an APA.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold with one finger white head. Nose is caramel malt and light hops. Taste is sweet malt upfront with a mild hop finish. Medium mouth feel. Meh, not one of the better GI offerings.

12 oz. bottle. A very good beer that I can find nearly anywhere. Not the best, but better than most. A good burst of hops that doesn’t linger very long. Easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle... poured nice golden color, decent head, decent lacing. Wonderful aroma of citrus. I wasn’t overly impressed with the flavor. It started off strong with big dose of hops, but didn’t hold well and finished abruptly. I was looking for a little more body out of this one. This is a refreshing beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice dark amber in color. There’s about three inches of head atop the beer. Smell is piney hops. Taste is more of the piney, grassy hops. There’s a little bit of a juicy, citrus hop flavor as well. Very good, biting mouthfeel. This is a good IPA.
