2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a big IPA fan but wont rule out any beer and will give anything a try once. like most IPA.s this wont be on my repeat list but as the varietal goes its ok. light golden clear color with thin off white head. Aroma is of grapefruit and lemons. Flavor contains pink grapefruit with a touch of sugar, a touch of bitterness but not excessive. thin mouthful but not watery, aftertaste does not linger and grapefruit flavor finishes lightly.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2015 A mild, indistinct IPA. Not bad, not special. Pours bright orange, average head. The aroma is pine hops and vegetable notes. The flavor has a floral/citrus hop quality, the malt is slightly rich, but the finish is a little watery.

12 oz from the room-temp bottle (so not ideal conditions). Tasty. Great balance between sweet fruity citrus taste and bitter. I’d love to try it again in better conditions.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber almost orange in color with a small white head that disappears quickly. A strong but pleasant citrus aroma. Slightly carbonated so the flavor fills your mouth. Mostly citrus peel flavor yet not too bitter. The bitterness stays in your mouth with no harsh after taste or burning in the throat. Finishes smooth. Not great but not bad. Enjoyable.

Smells like orange and stone fruit. Tastes citrusy, fruity with some floral notes and plenty of sweet malts. Moderately bitter. The first beer I’ve had from the OTHER Great Lakes Brewery

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from The Hop Yard in Raleigh. Orange hue, normal clarity with somewhat lasting fizzy off-white head. Okay lacing. Aroma of orange zest, and bold floral hops. Strong orange zest taste up front with more of a lasting floral hop finish. As the beer warms it is floral aroma and taste primarily. Good IPA!!
