2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at Neumo’s. Pours a cloudy medium toffeeish amber with a dense and creamy light tan head. Lovely floral and perfumey nose with bits of pineapple in there. Creamy medium body, firm carb. Tangy pineapple notes, some caramel, and lots of aluminum. Not at all pleasant, and not at all what the brewer intended, to be sure.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells like a bitter IPA. This is okay. Mostly dominated by bittering hops, it isn’t balanced and tastes a bit metallic.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not much going on with this one at all. Light hop nose, maybe a little floral. A touch of malt. Amber golden pour with a thin white head. The flavor has light notes of malty sweetness and some floral hops. Very mild and uninteresting. Nothing wrong with this beer except that it was boring.

on tap at deluxe in seattle. really boring IPA to me. Nothing bad about it, but just a standard hop aroma and somewhat bland, bitter flavor.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Spring Beer Festival in Portland, OR. Light amber in color with an aroma of well not much maybe a little hops. It had a very light body not like an IPA should be, almost more like a mainstream lager. Taste was well, horrible. At fist it tasted almost like astringent then move to a very light hop taste at the very end. I am not sure if something was wrong with it or maybe the pour seeing as this was at a beer fest. I will have to try it later on and see if it is any better.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Taster – Spring Beer Festival – Portland, OR
Aroma: Light IPA aroma. This was hard to tell was this a IPA.
Appearance: Light amber in color, clear with a thin head.
Flavor: The hops where very flavorless. This was a light taste I had never ad before in an IPA. The beer almost tasted infected and off.
Palate: Dry Off finish, with not so good Mouthfeel.
Overall: This was a terrible beer. I am really surprised. Full Sail usually does such a great job. I am thinking they got the kegs wrong. I will taste again on a later date.
