3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden with a a medium white head. Very strong citrus and herb aroma with some caramel and coffee malt. Despite the very strong hops aroma it is not overly bitter and has a bit of a fishy or moldy/cheese taste that isnít as bad as it sounds. Medium to full body with a somewhat creamy texture and slight bitter finish. This is a great IPA. Especially if you like cheese, sounds weird I know but it gives it a unique character. Up there with the best Iíve had so far.

On tap at Hopcat E.L. Nice ipa, I would say middle of the road. Not the best, not the worst. Would try again.

Pours an amber yellow color with a white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, and hops. Flavor of grapefruit, passion fruit, pine, and a quick bitter hop ending. Very nice!

Bottle from Target. Pours a light copper with a medium white head. The aromas are grass, citrus. The mouthfeel is dry and bitter with a light body and great carbonation. Cheers!

Keg @ Euston Tap. Fresh, fruity, invigorating.. a massive bold taste, excellent mouthfeel and a great teasing bitterness. Awesome stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is light. A little malty. A little fruity but not so bad.
Appearance is very bubble but amber. Lighter amber. Looks a little weak.
Taste is watery. Lighter. A hint of malt on the finish. Some pine hops on the back end.
Palate is wet. Lighter. Lingering pine note seems a bit off.
Overall a pretty good IPA but nothing special. Definitely not the most flavorful IPA... Almost drinks like a session but maybe thatís because I love super intense beer. Idk lol

Nice smell. Perfect color. I like the carbonation. Taste is a hoppy, but with a watery mouthfeel. Has an aftertaste that is not pleasant. An average IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Lots of retention on a mostly clear gold. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, pine hops and toffee.
The taste palate is a little watery. Flavor has some nice spicy and citrusy hops with plenty of pale malts to balance things out. Caramel malt mellows out the hops. Pine notes in the backend. Medium body, high carbonation and slick. Real clean finish. Bitterness doesnít linger long.
Overall an average IPA that is easy to find and not short on flavor. By todayís crazy DIPA standards this is pretty tame and could serve as a bridge beer for a friend that is just learning about IPAís.This could seem rather boring for the extreme hophead.

Draft @ Three Fires. Sweet creamy vanilla and hazelnut aroma ... what the hell? No, I wasnít imagining it, everyone else at my table got the same thing. At least I like vanilla and hazelnut, so it smelled OK to me, but not what I expected from an IPA. Clear brassy gold with a large off-white head, thick lacing. Caramel malt, orange, and herbal hops flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation.
