Hazy ice tea pour. Aroma is subtle semi sweet hops. Somewhat over fridge temps this grows to an a bit above avg IPA with slightly sticky hops and hints of citrusy pine. Good not super and kinda $$ for what ya get.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, passion fruit, and floral. Flavor of melon, orange, passion fruit, caramel, strawberry. Thin body, but refreshing (would make descent summer beer). Strange aroma and flavor for an IPA...

Pours golden amber thick with a good head. Fresh hops and malty nose. Flavor was not as hoppy as expected but none the less, resionus citrusy hops and thick malty body, a tad sweet. Had an unpleasent aftertaste of funk witch distracted from a better rating.

This was a fairly dark orange colored brew. The wetness of the hops is very evident as is the bitterness. I dig it, solid session brew.

Yeah, there are hops in there. Good for the style, though not my favorite style.

Tap, O’Brien’s. Pours a dark amber color. Slightly malty aroma with some piney hoppiness. Intersting melon like flavors thoughout. Seems to be more malty than hoppy.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thin, fuzzy head and a dense ruby color. Smells of dust, grass, with a sourness and a very odd touch of chicken soup. Initial flavor is a mellow fruit richness, followed by a faint sour taste. Aftertaste is a sweet lemon. Overall, decent but nothing impressive
