2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a nice looking dark orange with a short-lived head, no lace. Low hop aroma, slightly fruity but more reedy/vegetal really. The flavours are the same, with rather dumbed-down hops and thin malts.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Picked up at Keg and Barrel 15th street in Plano, TX. 12oz bottle pours up deep gold with a touch of haze to go along with copper hues and weak loose off white head. The aroma has a disjointed mix of caramel, maltiness and sharply bitter smelling grapefruit. The taste is similar starting with a brief nearly tasteless sweet note that gets clobbered by carbonation enhanced sharp to tart to nearly sour citrus bitter notes. It sort of stays citrus tart and almost sour into the finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12-oz bottle Marcello’s Lafayette, LA - Aroma - toasted, biscuit (malt); Flavor - sweet, salty, bready, toasted, biscuit (malt), finishes dry; Appearance: hazy golden to orange color with white head; Mouthfeel: light bodied, moderate carbonation; Overall: not a balance of hop and malt IPA beer with no presence of hops. However, a nice malty taste beer. I don’t think the lack of hop aroma and flavor is due to an old bottle. I would be amazed if hops could drop out this much.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice hoppy smell, but not really in the taste. Flavor is almost sweet, but not really. Interesting, but not one I’d buy again.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was an IPA??? Sugar sweet candy aroma. Appearance was murky and somewhat brown. Flavor was soapy and watery. The only way you could tell this was a beer was the sweet corn malt and decent bittering to it. Poor attempt of an IPA to me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear amber with a fleeting head. Mild grassy hop aroma. Medium body. Earthy tea leaf hop flavors on a caramel malt base brew. Not too bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellowish brown in appearance, moderate head. Slightly malty, flowery aroma. Not very hoppy at all for an IPA, but it can be slightly tasted. The alcohol content is well masked and it’s just perfectly carbonated. If you’re a hophead, this isn’t the IPA for you. That being said, I’m not, and I think it’s delicious.
