2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer tastes more like an IPA to me. It has a decent hop flavor, but is stale and uninteresting.

Charlotte, NC - University Location.
This was actually advertised as an IPA at the UNCC Hops. A deep golden color, with a medium white head. Aroma was weak, but dominated by hops. This was a pretty carbonated beer, and it went down easy with some bittering in the back. Passable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At Gainesville FLA: The single hop ale has a medium amber hue with some head but again as no lace. The nose hints of mild pine and grapefruit. Also detected some orange, caramel, and leather esters. Creamy and buttery taste with undertones of piney hops and sea salt. Slightly bitter finish. Thin to medium-bodied, creamy and lively mouthfeel. Mildly metallic feel. Okay APA, not aggressive, smooth and quaffable despite the flaws.
