2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draught during the Winterfest 2008 in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. Pours a semi-hazy golden amber brew with a thick off-white head that quickly dissipates clean. Aroma of citrus zest, a touch of grapefruit and some bread malt. Taste is well-carbonated, light to medium bodied, a very one dimensional flavor of miild citrus zest, with hardly any light malt flavors. Finish is slightly watery, along with a mild citrus aftertaste. Maybe this could be considered as a light American Pale Ale but not a West Coast caliper IPA that I am used to.

Sampled at the Cedar Rapids location. Traces of a thin head with a light amber colored body. The aroma is light citrus and hay. The taste is smooth grapefruit and light oak. This is a decent version of an English style IPA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, Maumee OH location. Pours a slightly hazy copper-orange body with a minimal off-white head. Some grapefruity hops over a light caramel malt base on the nose. The flavor is light citrusy and floral hops over a thin caramel malt base. A little sticky and clingy with soft carbonation. Probably the best of the 7 beers that I had that night, but that’s not really saying much.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This draft brew from our new restaurant/brewery in Fort Wayne, IN poured a head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a and a poor lacing. The nice aroma was of piney hops. The semi-thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt and piney hops. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

20oz tap..probably closer to 16oz poured. Unfiltered orange-tan, big steady beige head. Classic English hop aroma. Rather watery in body, thin and lacking depth. Toasty, mellow citrus hop balance. Tastes like the mall IPA it is, pretty unimpressive.
