3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Hay Merchant. An unclear, golden beer topped by a finger-thick off-white head leaving lacings. The aromas is a bit weak I think, but nice, with citrus peel notes, resins and a grassy touch. Not much room left for the malts. Itís pretty bitter on the palate, with citrus peel, pine cones and a subtle malty sweetness. Full body and a nice carbonation level, semi-sweet. Mostly bitter finish. A beer that starts off a bit boring, but sure isnít. 140515

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at Richmond Arms, 4/2/14
Aroma: Nose has some pine and citrus, some crystal malt, and some caramel
Appearance: It pours a hazed darker amber color with a beige head and average lace
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet and mid-bitter, similar to the components of the nose
Palate: The body is medium, it has an alright mouthfeel, and average carbonation
I thought this was a half decent, but ultimately unexciting IPA. This is a fine beer, but it is hardly more than that.

On draft at The Buzz @ Bee Cave. Served in a pint glass, deep yellow almost amber color. Aroma is lacking unfortunately, taste is fairly tame, not bitter at all. Isn't a bad beer, but it's boring by my IPA standards.

Hazy copper with off-white head. Almost non-existent aroma; some caramel and wet dog. Taste is malt forward and very mildly bitter. Medium bodied and pretty smooth. Weak IPA, but not a bad beer.

Tap at mellow mushroom in spring. The look is clear, lacing white head, and golden in color. The smell is pine, fruit, hops, grapefruit, cleaning solution. The taste is decent bitterness, hops, pine, and ok.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Weird one -- it starts malt-forward, then the hops really develop. Finishes quite hoppy, with mostly citrus rind. Not sure Iíve seen one run the gamut quite this well. Nice!
