Average, not particularly robust nor lacking excessively in character, this IpA splits the middle ground on a decent brew, which, while pleasing on a nice warm afternoon, is not amazing.

It had a cloudy yellow/orange color with a small head. You can definitely taste the hops. It had a nice finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A good IPA, the bitterness was on the lighter end of what I feel a IPA should have, but the hops were all flavor and aroma. The initial taste there is a slight hint of coffee. I might have had a bad bottle but there was a slight taste of wet cardboard, like a oxidized beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A slightly hazy orange-amber color with a nice white head. Hoppy grapefruit aroma. Nice flavor, obviously it’s hoppy, some nice malt flavors as well. Nice bitter finish. Very smooth mouthfeel. I drank this A LOT in college. Now that I’ve moved to Chicago, I find myself drinking a lot once again. Overall very good, but not the best IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle: Attractive head with some lacing. Light orange color with lots of carbonation. Heavy pine & citrus in the aroma. with some pastry. Muted spicy hop finish, but still strong and long. Entry is bready and mildly sweet. Good body. Creamy/milky all the way through.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Nice and fresh. Fruit like mango, strawberries and of course orange and grapefruit. Also, some resinous elements.
Mouthfeel: Medium oily body.
Taste: Mmmm. Bitter and crisp. Hoppy, but on a good, balanced malt background. A lot of citrus goodness. Not as agressive as brewdogs and flying dogs:)
Finish: Bitterness that lasts and lasts. Citrus notes carry on to a tannic feel.
Overall: Definitely a winner. Delicious and round. Very very enjoyable indeed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not the best IPA around but well worth the time, lacks abit of the complexity of some of the Westies. I still love it(in the bottle, crap on tap in most places).
