3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle thanks to Padrefan98. Clear golden color with a nice head. Nice fruity aromas of citrus and apple. Flavor fell off a bit though as the bitterness was a touch soapy.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaque golden orange color with a light head made of small bubbles. The beer has a bit of a hoppy smell, but it is very light. It also has a bit of a grassy scent to it (or is that just the name?). This beer has a bit of hoppy flavor to it, but tastes more like a pale ale than an IPA to me. However, for being a fairly light flavored beer it has a fair amount of body in the mouth. Overall this is an okay beer, but not a great IPA.

Total grassy grapefruit flavor. Not much bitter hop flavor. Not terribly good. Disappointing - I couldnít finish it. Just didnít taste good.

insufficient hops, aftertaste like old citrus; not entirely unpleasant, but probably not on the buy list.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I think someone forgot to put hops in the boil. Seriously. For an IPA to have this minimal amount of hops is a crime. If it werenít for the appearance and mouthfeel, this would be 4ís across the board. An aroma of light melon, biscuts with a very minimal citrus angle. Appearance orangish/gold in color, with a one-finger white head. Flavor was melons, wet grass and with a slight sweetness. Suprisingly dry for an IPA. This was just so damn boring I nearly fell asleep while drinking it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good quality beer for sure but lacks the distinctiveness of some of colorado IPAs. Simply malty with a long finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small tan head with good retention and a coating lace. Pale blond colored brew. Nose is spicey, lightly fruity with light piney notes. Body is med/light with a fair amount of carbonation, medium bitterness. Fruity hop flvors, citrusy and a hint melony with a decent caramel malt backup. Finish is almost dry, fruity citrusy notes. Not sure who i got this from but thanks!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy goden yellow with a creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet melon and grassy hops with a touch of pepper.
The flavor is some sugary sweetness and a little melon followed by an earthy bitter hop finish. Itís a little too sweet and I donít particularly care for the hop flavor but it has decent bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a well-made IPA. The flavor profile isnít totally up my alley though.
