4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. Crystal clear, orange-tinted gold with a lasting eighth-inch of creamy foam. Faint nose of fresh orange, sweet earth and resin. Tastes of earthy caramel, tea leaf, and orange on front. Nice finish of resiny pine, bitterish green herb, oak, and lightly peppery citrus zest. Light-medium body is smoothly carbonated (but a bit more than English style), barely watery so as to be a good session ale, and very well-balanced. Wow, the 7% is well hidden and this is a dangerously drinkable brew. This one is right on the mark for a great traditional IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pours a transparent golden bronze with a spotty-lacing coating of white head. Muted aroma of mild, grassy piny hops and a touch of lightly toasty pale malt. Starts with a light malty sweetness and some resiny hop bitterness with a light piny flavor before a drier, slightly oxidized finish. This may be a bit past its prime, but is still a drinkable IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Belmont Party Supply. Pours a crystal clear dark golden color with a medium sized fluffy white head that left some lacing. The aroma was moderately sweet with some grapefruit citrus, earthy and pine hops. The flavor is more about the pale bready malts than any hops. What hops there are come across as earthy with some hints of grapefruit citrus. The finish is dry and somewhat bitter with no real standout character. This is not quite what I would expect with nothing to go on but the name.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very lucent copper, thin but dense and lasting head, medium-full body, medium co2.
aroma: barnyard funk, a little bit of earthy hops.
T1= very funky barnyard, pale malt.
T2= still barnyard, nutty malt, co2, earthy resinous hops.
T3= fairly clean, some bitter hop resin.
the barnyard character makes it unique as an ipa, but imo, not in a good way.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours and looks average. No aroma unless you try really hard. The flavor is ok, nothing really special, although the aftertaste is interesting if you think about it enough. This beer has nothing to make it stand out. The label is cool though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Single bottle buy from Binny’s in Orland Park, IL: This poured a golden body with a foamy white head that provided plenty of lace. The aroma had grainy malt with lemon and herbs. The flavor added a touch of butterscotch, but the hoppy spices toned that down. The finish had an earthy bitterness. Not bad, but more like an EPA than an IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a crisp golden color with a medium soapy white head which fades rather quickly leaving a few streaks of lacing. Aroma is pistachio, melon, and light citrus. Taste is light citrus up front, melon, and a odd pistachio nuttiness finish. Kinda weird.
