3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprised to see how low this was rated. Appearance was a nice golden color with minimal white head. Aroma was sweet with tropical fruits and a hint of biscuit and just a little caramel. Taste was nice and sweet up front with some mild hops on the backend. Mouthfeel is smooth with nice carbonation. Overall a solid west coast IPA.

Pours clear golden with a thin off white head. Bread aroma. Initial crisp fruit hop taste that immediately switched to a grassy dry earthy dry mouth feel. Pronounced switch.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden orange with a white head. Head retention is good. AROMA: Malt, pineapple, citrus, floral hops, spice, slight spruce, very light caramel and a slight funk. TASTE: pine bitterness, hope bitterness, caramel, citrus, spice, tropical fruit and pineapple. AFTER TASTE: pine bitterness, caramel light citrus and spice with an oily finish. Definitely expected more from this brew however it’s still a great brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
BBD 5/13/15. Pours a clear golden with a touch of amber. Normal head characteristics.
Nice, but a bit light, nose of herbal hops with a bit of peppery spice over biscuit.
Light medium body with a smooth texture. Slightly above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a solid finish.
The flavor profile is unique, intense, a bit complex but not well balanced. It begins with an odd flavor - herbal hops, a mineral aspect and something that tastes old and metallic. A nice biscuit sweetness arrives in the middle under a mild hop bitterness with a bit of pepper spiciness. The finish has a bit of alcohol bite and is also metallic

Bottle pour. Light golden amber with off white head. Aroma is grass, honey, and grapefruit. Medium body. Light bitter with decent salty. A good IPA.

Okay, can you please shorten your official beer description? Ive been drinking quite a bit already tonight, so I dont need such a long introduction.... But its true, this does not come across as a "normal" IPA in many ways, especially the smell & look of it (smells of yeast/beer-in-progress, looks like a lager or other golden brew). Tastes pretty interesting but why are IBUs info not displayed?? "Happy Sleuthing"?? Hey guys, Im not trying to solve a mystery, I just want to have a drink....

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not terrible, but almost bland compared with most IPA I have had. Hardly a scent to speak of. The only pronounced flavor is one I’m not accustomed to, but isn’t bad; just not reminiscent of a standard IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little different. Aroma and Flavors were hoppy with an earthy malt. Not overly strong but received with mixed feelings. OK I guess.

Cocoa, orange, roasted malt. Low carbonation, orange flower and dark chocolate, floral hops, lemon zest, nutty cake, dry finish. Quite an interesting take on an ipa, does have both the british dark cocoa and american orange fruity edges.

On tap at OBriens in San Diego. Deep gold color, low carbonation. Aroma is dried grass, honey, malt. Flavor leans to a grainy cereal character with sweet caramel and hop bitterness understated. Finishes quickly with low alcohol tones. It's OK.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a solid off-white 1/2" head, cobweb of lace. Taste is caramel malt that adds mild, but distinct, hops on the swallow. Light carbonation is also present. Pretty simple, just barely enough hops to be an IPA.
