3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from Hophead22. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium plus off white head. The nose has a big fruity citrus component, grapefruit, with a base of toasted bread and caramel malts. The flavor doesn’t have the same fruity burst as the nose. Grapefruit pith, earthy, pine, decent bitterness with toasted caramel dipped bread. Good body and mouth feel. A pretty solid IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. The pour yields a hazy, dark, dusky brownish-orange body with a thick, frothy, beige tinted head. Pronounced, bubbly lacing clings hard to the glass, fading into a dense edge around the surface. The nose is quite bright, fresh, and hoppy, showing notes of grapefruit pith, lemon rind, and pine over a base of caramelized and toasty bread grain. If I close my eyes I get a hint of rye as well. Flavors are biting and pithy, quite bitter in fact, again showing loads of grapefruit pith, grass, and resin. Malts are prominent as well, quite bready and biscuity, bouncing back and forth between sweet and dry. The palate is moderate in body and carbonation, dragging across the palate a bit and finishing with lingering sticky hops. Overall, a nice IPA, but it has its share of flaws.

On tap at The Bruery Provisions bar and store. Cloudy yellow body with a good soapy head. The IBU is up there, but its just OK to drink. Competent for the style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus and earthy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where exceeded.

Not quite the hop character I was looking for from a cali brewer. More earthly that grapefruit. Solid brew

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a decent white head. Light springy hops. Can definitely sense the Columbus hops. Light, tangy hoppy taste. Goes down real well. Light, dry finish with a little tart zing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color in the glass. There is a mild aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is good with earth tones of grass but not too overpowering. There is a little citrus in the taste but not too much. Was expecting more.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; poured a nice radiant amber/burnt orange; with a somewhat milky looking off white head. Aroma was darn good; haven’t smelled an IPA with this good of aroma in a while. Juicy fruit notes, mingled with pine, earth and grapefruit. Flavor was a few pegs down, but still quality. Earthy with some fruity notes; quite aggressive in the hopping and a touch of alcohol. Hint of a light sweetness. Great aroma, good beer.
