3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle courtesy of stopbarking poured into a tulip.
Pours a bright hazy golden orange with a big billowy white head that recedes to a thick cap and leaves good lacing. Very good looking IPA actually.
The aroma is tame with some light lemony hops and some floral as well. There is light sweet malts as well but itís all very subdued.
The taste is more of the same and actually a little less impressive. There is some faint citrus hops and light sugary malts. There is a light metallic bitterness in the finish and a fairly surprising alcohol burn.
The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with good carbonation but the flavors seem watery.
This is a fairly average IPA with the flavors coming across watered down. Itís not bad just not memorable in any way.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours a clear dark yellow color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of piney and grassy hops. The flavor is pine hops as well as some citrus and some grainy notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a bad IPA, but nothing really stands out that makes me want to try it again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is hazed orangey amber with a thin dense off white head...smell is light, sweet, and fruity up front with a nice strong grapefruit and resiny character as well...taste is nicely hoppy but a bit quick with the hop flavor as it quickly turns nicely sweet with caramel...the hops certainly faded quickly...there is a bit of citrus in the slightly sweet and quick finish...I never wouldíve guessed in a million years that this is 8%...no hint of booze whatsoever.

$6.99/4 pack. Central Market. San Antonio, TX. Golden brown with a nice fluffy head, very well carbonated and head has a lot of retention. The aroma is surprisingly mild as far as hops go with some citrus showing up. The taste had a very light hop taste with some bitterness showing up, citrus on the tongue. Very basic IPA
