3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: Draft at MacDowell Brew Kitchen. It pours a hazy gold with a loose but lasting white head. Very floral on the nose with an odd vegetal note. Ditto on the palate. Seems to remind me of baby powder for some reason. Medium bodied. That off vegetal note seems to pull this one down. Middle of the road.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Somebody at this brewery needs to start dating the bottles because I got a clearly old bottle. I can only rate what I experience though. Aroma is grassy hop, bitter earth, slight saturated grapefruit garbage, and a dull bitter malt. Pours light golden with a small white head. Taste is stale malt, bitter grass, and slight moss. Literally tastes like licking a green trail so aptly named. Would love a re-do at the brewery.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a bottle, big hoppy aroma. Fairly cloudy. Taste is big hops as usual for this style. Perhaps a little less mouth coating and less viscous than many IPA. I may even say this is more like a stronger APA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a hazy, bubbly dark gold with an average size lasting fluffy white head. Aroma is mild and a touch odd for the style: It’s fruity (citrus and oddly, apple), a bit vegetal and has some light bready sweetness. Flavour of fruit (citrus and tropical), bready malt and a moderate bitter finish. Average bodied. A good, not great, Session IPA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Melville Superstar Beverage, 7/30/14
Aroma: The nose is clean, fresh cut grass, some orange/citrus, with earth and spice notes
Appearance: It pours a cloudy gold-orange color with a thin head and some streaky lacework
Flavor: Tastes a little thinner, lightly sweet, with some spice, and a medium bitter finish
Palate: The body is fairly light, with a fairly fizzy carbonation, and a long, mid-dry finish
I thought this one was only okay. I felt like the aroma was a good bit better than the flavor, which is not usually a great sign. It is a decent beer, but I wouldn’t rush off to get another one.
