2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Hazed golden, yellow body with a soapy white head that recedes quickly. Aroma is muted grassy, weedy, vegetal notes with light perfume. Taste is quietly bitter leaves & slightly oily hops with a mild perfume & soapy character that isn’t all too pleasing. Light cracker malt, dry finish. Faint orange & a slight rubbery aftertaste. Not great.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 12 ounce bottle bought as part of a mix six pack from Whole Foods in Brentwood (suburban Nashville) Tennessee. Slightly hazy gold hue with slight amber tint, small white head that mostly lasted with good lacing, moderate bittersweet nose with an unpleasant smell in the backround, moderate to strong bittersweet with initial citrus burst followed by hops and then a sugary finish--aftertaste not all that good. Good IPA but recipe could stand a little tweaking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle. Nice hop, malt, ocean aroma. Almost clear gold with lacing head. I taste citrus and floral hops with a bit of sweetness and a malt back. Banana and pepper notes as well. Hops are not overpowering. Decent - a good "go to" choice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a slight tinge of orange. Smell is orange pineapple, piney hops. Taste is a little sweet, caramel, pine, citrus in the middle and medium bitterness in the finish. Not great meets all the single IPA criteria. Also seems to be very sessionable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Darker orange pour and bright clear. nose is some citrusy and lightly floral and grassy hops. with some bready but not really caramelly malts. Flavor is similar but lacking in overally hop qualities. The malt body is good and seems like it could make a good ipa but is far from a good hoppy beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A bit light for an IPA, balanced malt and hops with a bit buttery of a feel. Lingering finish that is lacking in punch.

Horribly smelling ipa. Really skunky. The flavor is very good despite the taste. Nicely bitter and a nice kick of hopps. Has a bitter finish and almost no citrus taste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, yellow-gold color with a white head. The aroma has earthy notes mixed with light grapefruit. It has a light, crisp body with lively carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter with a pretty easy finish.
