3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at brewery. Pours a pale ever so slightly amber orange with a thick white head, lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, slight floral, caramel, pine, and a bit of grass. Flavor matches well and makes for a nice hoppy pale ale that leaves a nice hoppy bitterness in the mouth afterward. Very solid.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
it’s an IPA from a brewpub that has no inspiration. i appreciate that it’s fresh and locally made, but unremarkable and the only place i would drink it is here. same thing to be said about all their beers...

Draft. Poured a clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate floral hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a slightly hazy softly carbonated orange colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and floral. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.
