4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is a fresh citric hop scent. Color is a bright clear gold with good carbonation and a nice but loose head. Taste is crisp, hoppy and bitter. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish comes on with a mellow malt flavor that is chased down by a nice bitterness and light citrus hop flavor. This is a very good, mellow, well balanced IPA.

Smells like hops, taste like hops, leaves bitter grassy tongue at finish. Nothing citrus or spicey...ok rerated 20 minutes later: much better with warming +.05

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
@ Platte River Parkway Fall Festival. (My personal "Best of Show") The aroma is clear with a pleasant earthiness. Color slightly red. Well balanced flavor with a fruity lemon accent. This beer felt creamy and fizzy a the same time, like the long lost memory of a great cream soda on a hot summer day as a kid.

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 couldn’t finish it. Just didn’t taste good.

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