3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straightforward IPA moderate citrus and resin hop nose and flavors, caramel bread malts, semi-dry finish leaning to bitter, but mostly balanced. Indistinct, clean, straight to the point.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear deep copper body that supports an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up sugary malt sweetened tangerine and orange peel notes as well as some citrus gummy bears. The taste has an odd sweet nutty sort of lager-y note to it mixing with soft sugar sweetened citrus hops. It gets to tepid levels of citrus hop bitterness to midway but those "hop" notes quickly fade as malts surge forward into the finish. Not sure I’d try this again unless it was free as the malts and bits of hops aren’t coming together too well.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Jetson! Pours a hazy burnt orange appearance with an off white head. Earthy, herbal, woody, grassy hoppy, biscuity aroma. A bit tangy, lightly fruity, chewy cracker, pale malty, herbal, grassy flavor. Bleh.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft to pint. Looks decent; malty though. A hazy brownish orange with foamy off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells and tastes of mild hops and caramel malt. Average on the palate. A subpar, underhopped IPA.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at safeco field. Fitting that so many ballpark memories of my dad come back and the beer in my hand is a hank’s--even if it isn’t an hwpr. I love you, pop, and i miss you. Let’s go, Ms. Pours a hazy medium gold with a dense white head. Buttery caramel nose. Slick medium body with soft carb. Ultra buttery spastic fantastic bowl of popcorn mid palate. Is this ballyard lines or from the keg this way? Disinclined to do much investigation. Washed down that ballyard dog pretty good though. God, on days like this i love baseball so much it hurts.

Clear orange pour. Good white lacing. Nose is red apples, baked apple. Taste is metallic, mealy apple. Very chalky, powdery mouthfeel.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed at Monirae’s Casual Dining & Entertainment in Pennellville, NY when my band played there. Poured a golden-amber colour with some creamy lacing and a nice coat that topped the brew. Mild caramel and light hop aromas. Decent bitterness with the caramel malts balancing things. Grass notes from the hop. Decent easy-drinking IPA with nice caramel malts. Was nice to have something different in a bar with all of these other macros from A-B and Labatt.

Draft at Press Box. Pours clear dark gold with medium white head. Aroma is very faint citrus. Taste is slightly bitter with a bit of malts and not much else going on. Lingering bitter finish. Not great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber brew with decent white head that died off quickly. Smells of light floral hops. Tastes of floral hops with some notes of the malts. Not enough hops to be a real IPA, more of a APA. Overall a decent brew.
