3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head that laces. Very strong aroma with lots of malt and hops. Notes of caramel, grains, earthy hops, and some hints of citrus. Not quite as full bodied as I expected giving the aroma. Some sweet malt up front, lively carbonation, and surprisingly light bodied, almost refreshing. More hops come out on the finish with hints of pine and grass and a moderate bitterness.

12 oz. bottle shared by Seed22- thanks, Blake! Pours a clear orange-amber color with a finger-thick white head. Aroma of dry cereal, sweet and pale malts, floral hops, and light orange citrus. Flavor of pale malts, sugary cereal, straw, grassy hops, and faint citrus peel. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, grainy mouthfeel. Decent.

Passable IPA. Some bitter flavour, but in fact low on bitterness. Faint hop aromas. Simcoe, citrus. Highly carbonated. I wouldn’t have this again. A bit amber with a lasting quarter inch of foamy white ehad.Ken’s fresh bottle.

This was the only IPA in the deli, so I tried it. It was OK, but not great. A decent taste but I would not drink this again by choice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber pour with a nice white head. Aroma is pretty faint, caramel and biscuit malt with a little floral hops. The hops are a little more noticeable in the taste, especially at the finish. Medium body, a decent IPA but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a very strong aroma, just a little fruitiness and floral scent. It is a nice, reddish gold color with a lingering half inch head of off-white foam. The texture is a little thin, and the taste is very hoppy, very bitter. There are some pine and floral notes, but the only very distinctive trait is the bitterness. Otherwise, a pretty standard IPA.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours copper with a smear of off-white/beige bubbles. Aromas of roast malt and floral hop. Med body. It is floral over roast caramel, finishing a touch perfumey. A good IPA.
