3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange with a rough big bubble head. Big fruity hop aroma, like a super charged ESB. I nice drinker. Plenty of hops and dusty malt. Flavour has strong fruit notes similar to the aroma. Intriguing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not a big fan of IPA’s but this was a fairly decent one. Not too harsh and the taste wasn’t too rancid. I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this again but there are other brews I would run away from first.

Bottle from Hy-Vee Liquors poured into 16oz shaker - Pours dark golden brown with a 1.5 finger beige head that goes away fairly fast; Lots of hops and a hint of caramel to the nose; A citrusy initial taste that has a BIG floral side to it; A piney backtaste that doesn’t overpower at all; No bitterness what so ever! I’m quite impressed!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a med. chill hazed amber with a white frothy head. Aroma is citrusy but mild with some caramel character. The body is med-light. The flavors are rather formulaic East Coast IPA with some citrus and pine, a touch of caramel, but nothing really impresses. Dry light bitterness in the finish. My wife says it’s a nice APA. I would not disagree.
