2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
If your looking for a solid IPA, than your SOL. This was flat both in palate, taste, and hop. There are subtle floral undertones, but all in all not great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Deep golden with a thick lasting white head. Low aroma of green hops, coniferous. Pale malts with a vegetal coniferous hop presence that is not overpowering. Nice enough, but tame.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear amber with a small tan head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has medium caramel and biscuit malts paired with soft piney-resinous hops. The flavour is moderately bitter up front with resinous hops, grapefruit and tropical fruit. It becomes more bitter as it develops and closes with a long, lingering hoppy finish. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. It is fairly well balanced, though not the most aromatic. 2013-08-10

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish-brown pour from tap. Mild, floral aroma, bitter forward but balanced. Not especially memorable but a balanced and pleasant IPA. Far too many interesting IPA’s to compete with here.
Would I drink again? yes.
