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.

another cardboardsque offering from IW. more lively hop profile than the other 7 we tried, but really, that’s not saying much. the cloudy light orange looks identical to the pale ale, smells and tastes a little old and musty with a muddled midwest hop profile."
