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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a tan head fading over a hazed amber body. Aroma is straight high alpha American hop pellets (can’t remember at this point of the night if it is Centennial or Warrior, but I have smelled these pellets before). Caramel backing. Taste doesn’t have much bittering hop, but a decent amount of late boil hops. Seems very home-brew like...All extract IPA nearly. Light bubbles. The first "drinkable" Indian Wells beer that I have had.
