3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with a white head. Aromas of flowers, some citrus. No piney hops present. Taste is mildly bitter, well balanced, dry finish. Why is this beer shit on so badly in the ratings? This is a very under appreciated and underrated beer. I like this.

Average IPA. Orange and lemon in the aroma as well as a bit of grass. A bit watery and not much depth coming from the malts.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
$1.60 bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours golden with half-inch of white head. Lagery aroma, grasses, copper, tin. Tastes of bitter grasses, a hint of lemon, light copper, and malts... horrid skunky aftertaste. Too lagery - no imagination or appreciation of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: Nothing unique but it is a well-made beer. Decent balance and great transition from sweet to bitter.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a hazy, dark yellow to light orange with an average, off-white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma was a little weak, but had light to moderate caramel and pale malt; and moderate orange and other citrus hops. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet and moderately bitter with an average to long duration. There was pale malt, a little caramel, citric hops, less pine hops, and orange and lemon hops mostly. The light to medium body was slightly syrupy and then dry with fizzy carbonation and a metallic and dry finish.
