3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle (born 3/27/14) @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy medium amber with a big fluffy white head that slowly recedes to a cover, wide strips of lace. I wonder if my bottle is a different batch than that of several other reviewers (who cite a "drink by" date), because I note none of their complaints. Taste is sweet for an IPA, beginning with caramel malt that does receive a generous jolt of citrus hops midway through, but by the finish the malt prevails. Not a top contender for IPA of the year, but very drinkable none-the-less.

Apricot-gold with a thick head that dissipated quickly, some lacing, and a grapefruit, peach, mango nose. Malty intro with a soft palate and a mild grapefruit, mango finish.

Bottle, courtesy of Jackl – thanks! Pours a fuzzy copper orange topped with a monster of a pillowy beige head. Good lacing. Nose is fresh grapefruit, a little floral, and pale malts. A softer IPA in flavor, grapefruit without the edge and tropical fruit. Mild in bitterness. Enjoyable.

I never had a beer from this brewer and I was pleasantly surprised to find the flavor of the beer matched the decorated label. Pretty nice overall, well balanced, expected, good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a fairly clear, orangey amber hue, with a modest layer of off white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was dank, as a lightly skunked scent detracted from any pleasantries offered by citrus & pine. The taste was dry, with citrus, and a touch of malt sweetness. Light bodied, the texture appeared somewhat watery & thin, as the taste presented a lingering presence to the moderate, citrusy & rindy hop bitterness. The aroma was very questionable, but the flavor was okay.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a standard copper color, with above average white, fluffy head. Aroma is citrus and grapefruit hoppy notes with a decent malty backbone bringing caramel and a slight sweetness. Some unpleasant grain notes come through as well. Taste is grapefruit peel, pine and slight citrus. Solidly bitter, mild caramel malts. Palate is wet, no drying on the palate. Medium heavy carbonation and medium body. Overall an OK IPA, but not my favorite.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Petite bouteille. Corps orangé. Anneau de mousse. Nez léger d’agrumes avec des qualités florales et un grain toasté. Goût faiblard de houblons fruités et de grains grillés. Ça manque définitivement de raffinement ou de complexité. Bouche moyenne à légère avec un bon apport des bulles et une texture plutôt mince. En arrière-goût, une amertume qui jongle avec des fleurs et de la résine. En résumé, une IPA traditionnelle qui manque d’inspiration.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy, light amber color with white lacing head. Aroma of typical IPA, but stronger than most. A bit of citrus, but the bitterness is a little overpowering. Okay.
