2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft sampler at Great Crescent sometime in 2013. Medium amber/yellow hue, subdued mostly sweet nose, watery flavor with some bittersweet taste that’s not as assertive as this brewery’s APA. A million miles from an IPA

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can from notes. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malt, caramel, sweeter English style malts, mild orange citrus, light bitterness, kind of boring.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. How can an unshaken can get a gusher? This one was-- yikes! Deep golden, massively gassy head. Plastic phenols taint the nose and palate, with underlying bread dough and straw. Terrible. Drain pour.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Not so pleasant sweet malty aroma. Clear amber with a moderate ivory head. Sweet biscuity malt and a harsh weedy bitter hops flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Not so pleasant.

Um, okay. Can, thanks to Drsilverworm. Pours orange/copper with a lively head. Smells and tastes of onions, plastic and malty sweetness. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can - pours murky honey amber with voluminous orange/white head with thin lacing. Nose is floral. Flavor adds caramel, yeast, faint citrus and cereal. Not very bitter, but mildly sweet. Dry to the lips on the finish. A great introductory beer for people afraid of the bitter-face, but not so good for those who expect bitterness in IPAs. It’s drinkable and the tag at the store said it was 6.2% ABV. I’ll drink but certainly won’t recommend it to hop-heads. Metallic aftertaste.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
16oz can from Keg Liquors in New Albany, IN. Pours a lightly hazed, copper-gold colored body with a big, two finger-width, frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is wet grainy malts with a touch of caramel sweetness and some metallic, skunky, grapefruit grass and florals. Flavor is pretty awful. Metallic, skunky, corny hops with a stale grapefruit and a wet, grainy malt sweetness. Finishes with a metallic floral citrus and a wrenching hop character. An aftertaste that can’t come soon enough following a medium-light body and a fizzy carbonation. Overall, an absolutely awful IPA and an immediate drain poor. Cream corn mixed with metallic grapefruits.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy bright golden amber with a good 1/2" head, dotted lace. Clean caramel leads the way, quickly shared by a solid floral hoppiness midpoint, giving way again to caramel at the finish. Well-balanced - surprisingly good. Not sure it really is an IPA (due to the somewhat mild hop character), but if it drinks well, who cares? Recommended
