3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with fast hading off-white head. Aroma of malt, earth and pine. Flavor is much the same with a pleasant bitter in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium body but somewhat watery with high carbonation. Overall I did enjoy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured hazy medium golden with a short, sticky whitish head. The aroma picked up honey and bready malts with wet earthy and lesser citrus accents.. smelled sugary, but alright. The flavor found fruity and bready sweetness at the core, with more bitterness than the nose suggested (grainy pine, grassy notes, and citrus led).. peppery and warmer on the finish.. not greatly interesting in any regard, but it was a decent drinker. Medium-bodied and grainy on the palate.. fairly bitter, but not always in a good way.. this was aiight.

3/20/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie. I drank the whole thing. Eat me, Travis! Chunky, cloudy amber pour with plenty of yeast sediment and basically no head. Bitter, caramel aroma with spicy, earthy hops and some dirty dishrag. Similar flavor with a dry bite, a hint of astringent vodka flavor, and a dash of butter. Nasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle thanks to Colby as an extra, drank in my Orval glass...Pours a not entirely appealing dark honey gold that is very light on the sides but super dark in the middle. An off white head that rises about a finger and half but looks whimpy, as if its going to fall quickly. It falls to half a finger fast but shows off some nice lacing...A light aroma, malty start of bread and pineapples, but a little generic in both departments. The hops show through on the back reminding me of a really light pale ale. Light wet grass hops that are sweet and have a hint of alcohol...Taste is a slight improvement over the aroma, bready pineapples to start followed by a boring light grass hop. Doesn’t taste bad by any means just boring, wish the hops showed off more.
An easy to drink pale ale that doesn’t have a ton of flavor or anything with it. A decent session beer or one to start the night with, but don’t trade for it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle.
Pours a darkish orange/amber, slightly hazy, with a foamy off-white head that sticks for a good while before leaving some nice lacing.
It has a nice sweet, but hoppy scent, my nose is kind of stuffed so i am pissed that i cant fully smell this one.
The taste is smooth an sweet. The malts mix nicely with the hops which have a slightly tropical vibe. Not an in your face ipa but a solid one.

Bottle from Whip In. Murky ass pour that is colored a dark orange to brownish color. Foamy white head. This smells amazing. Lots of sweet hops, floral in nature with some spice. Very fruity and very nice. Flavor is also very hoppy and fruity with a lightly dry finish. This is a very good IPA!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Milky amberish, sediment floats about, huge foamy off-white head, very nice lacing.   Pale hop nose, otherwise pixie stix like aroma.   Soft hoppiness up front, candish sweetness, soft backside.   Fairly smooth, not very bitter, sweeter than most.   This almost seems like a very sweet American Pale Ale.   I am getting some of that airy kool-aid or pixie stix type sweetness.   While not bad, it seems a little like an okay homebrew because of that artificial sweetness.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Soft hop finish, sweet, candyish in that powdery sugar sorta way.   Tiz okay, but seems a little artificial.   Thanks Bill!
