Tap. Clear golden orange. Nose is dead, flavor is dead, faint paper, dusty candy hops. Lighter to medium slick body. Off putting sticky light sweetness. Is this old? Just off? Either way, not good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A wonderful concept and a testament to community brewing. Piney, rustic, earthy hops and a nice vinous malt backing. Short palate, fleeting resin, homegrown flavors.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from my father, 12/22/13, 2013 Release
Aroma: The nose earthy and floral hops, some fruity notes, sweet caramel/toffee malts
Appearance: It pours a nice, clean orange color with a small head and minimal lace
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet and mid-bitter, clean hop flavors, finishes a little more bitter
Palate: The body is medium, with an average-plus carbonation, some stickiness, and a dry finish
I thought this was a solid IPA and a really cool concept beer, but it isn’t quite up to being a great beer. Still, this is very worth trying. I’d love to try it super fresh to see if it is even better.
