3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of Wilkes and Lynn - they got it from someone else at Hunahpu Day - 12oz can: copper, amber pour with medium fluffy off-white. aroma of caramel, sugar, pine hops. tastes are bready, tropical fruit, burnt sugar, grain, light floral. I’m going to go ahead and say this isn’t the freshest - so grain of salt here - but definitely on the malty side for my ipa tastes.

Starts out as a mellow hopped IPA. Poured clear and orange. The hop flavors and palate were great. Floral hops, no earth some pine. Great finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Thomas Hall. Clear mahogany with a tan creamy head. Malty and fairly pit fruit IPA with an overlay of resin and citrus hops, only upon reading the description would I identify the blueberries but they are there and add an odd earthiness. Moderate carbonation and body, bitter but with a caramel malt undertone, somewhat dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at home picked up in Minneapolis. Pour is amber with a big egg-shell colored head. Citrusy, herbal hoppy, some grass, caramelly, bready, and goopy aroma. Taste is grassy, orange peel, bready, some caramel, lights grapefruit, and piney with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with carbonation. Pretty good - but would be a lot better with a lighter malt profile.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 5/3/15 from a 12oz can received as an extra in a trade. Pours clear, but considerably darker amber than a typical IPA, with a thick, off-white head that slowly recedes to thick, rocky lace. The nose is very dry, somewhat fruity, piney hops aroma, with just a nice hit of very dry, almost spicy malt. The flavor is super dry, plenty of fresh pine, lemon peel, and fruity hops, with some spice from the dry malt. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long very dry and somewhat spicy, bitter hops finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep copper color. Nose of citrus pine, tropical fruit, light spice. Fairly malty and full bodied, but hops balance it out. Crushable.

On tap at the brewery. Copper pour. Big white head, lots of lovely lacing to it. Rich, creamy hop flavor. Semi-dry finish with good dose of hop at the end. I am so glad to see this new brewery in my old neighborhood. No doubt I would have spent a lot of time here had it opened back in the day.

Dark Amber color with foamy head. Fresh hop aroma. Taste- a very malty IPA. Caramel, citrus, pine, grass. Good but not great IMO.
