3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at brewpub. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Not a lot of expression on the nose. Some decent citrus hoppiness on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but its not knocking my socks off.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear brilliant golden with a medium foamy white head with lots of lace. Nose has loads of dank orange rind and grapefruit zest with a decent floral resin, atop a semi sweet caramel maltiness. The taste is nice and balanced though very citric. Lots of citrus rind throughout even to the finish. Has a little floral resin bitterness as well, but its not too extreme, and is structured by a clean pale malt/semisweet malt body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent IPA. Citrus aroma that stood out but was not overdone. Light pale golden color that looked more pale ale with a small white head. Light palate with a crispness. It had a decent malt background with a good bitterness. Not overly unique and they have better IPA’s.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A solid IPA. This style has been done so many times that its hard distinguish good from great for me. Aroma was pretty good. Grassy hops that are fairly strong. Pour was a nice medium gold with a three finger white head courtesy Mad Mex Robinson. Taste was good. Nice hop flavor with just a hint of malt to balance out the bitterness while lending no sweet flavor. Good carbonation.
