2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- pours a filtered, crystal clear copper with one finger of off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin skin. Weak lacing. S- sweet malts and pine resin at first. Some soap, citrus and bread. Maltiness disappears it warms and becomes more vegetal. M- weak and thin palate with a slight tackiness. Light body as well with faint carb. T- light citrus and hoppy grapefruit up front. Some standard straw, and spice. Metallic and watery in the middle. Ending is quick watery grapefruit and some straw. Fairly simple without much flair. But enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light copper with an unremarkable head. Aroma is faint but pleasant. Balaced but unremarkable taste. Palate is clean and soft. Considering the current state of IPA’s this beer is pretty ho-hum.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 42°. Color is a deep gold with good carbonation and a thick rocky head. Aroma is a mellow hop scent with a hint of spice. It has a lighter medium body that gives a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is light with grain, a bit of hop spice and a bold bitterness. After taste is short and dry with some of the bitterness holding on. Overall its a nice easy drinking brew just a little lacking in flavor.
