2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
10/16/12. 12oz bottle from... Wal-Mart! A tick at Wal-Mart for $7 per six-pack? Dr. Owl is on the case! Amber pour with a small khaki head that fades. Light aroma with grains, caramel, and light, dingy, earthy hops. Slightly brighter flavor with more dingy, soapy hops, but a touch of citrus as well, on top of light grains and caramel. Eh.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
mundane as it gets. Sweet malt, insipid malt flavor, no hops. No character. Cashing in.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Single bottle and served in no-nik pint glass: Golden hued with a lasting fizzy head and good lacework. The aroma has notes of biscuity and caramel malts with grapefruity and piney Cascade hops, touch of pepper and DMS. The taste is lightly hoppy but you can get the Cascade character with moderate malt backbone and some spicy notes. Light sulfury notes do detract some. The mouth feel is meh, just sort of there. It is what it is, a generic paint by number IPA. Quaffable enough for easy enjoyment.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pours a golden color with a light white head. The nose is earthy with some light citrusy hops and a light pale malt note. The flavor is medium bodied, middle-of-the-road hops in the flavor. Fairly low key as far as west coast IPAs go.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Very light golden color on this, delivers a decent little fuzzy head. Light and pleasantly quaffable, comes off with a bit more of a malty character than you’d expect for the label, bit starchy, too perhaps. Decent center of the scale pale ale. (#5298, 10/19/2013)

12oz bottle- single from K Roger’s House .. . pours a medium dark honey gold .. light foam, light lacing .. . slight hops, but as with the other HW’s- non offensive .. but this is more of a light english pale .. . . beating people in the crowd, not a bad idea..

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brilliant dark gold cold with ivory head . Faint pine, floral, vegetal hop aromas. Mildly hoppy, lightly bitter pine, floral flavors on a grainy pale malt base brew--better than no ipa

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle thanks to Craig! Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light sweet nose of floral and citrus hops, big biscuit. The flavor is a big earthy malt, some perfume, light citrus, low bitterness. Tea-like. OK.
