3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pure liquid gold with a small white head mostly dissipating. Nose is equal parts malt and hops. Very creamy on the palate, this beer has a well balanced flavor of medium roasted malts and Cascade hops that is not overly bitter or hoppy, especially for an IPA. A good companion to deli sandwiches or with nuts.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Ralph’s. Sweet lightly hopped nose with a bit of graininess. Fairly clean, but tastes more like a pale lager with some extra hops than an IPA. Easy to drink, but fairly boring.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light copper with small, dissipating head and touch of lacing. Nose isn’t overly enticing with suppressed floral notes. Active carbonation, which dominates the mouthfeel. Not very hoppy for an IPA and not much bitterness. Medicinal finish. Pedestrian, at best.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange, high carbonation, small head. Aroma and flavor very weak for an IPA. Subtle floral notes. Very light finish with almost no bitterness. Not a horrible beer, it just does not live up to what an IPA should be.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear amber with a thin white head. Aromas of caramel, dough, light resinous hop, and yeasty. Taste is sweet and light on the bitterness for an ipa, wouldn’t know it was an ipa if it weren’t for the label. Okay.
