3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
draft. clear copper with a small light tan head. malt-heavy nose for IPA has medium to heavy caramel, toffee, bran and toasted biscuit malt aroma with soggy, vegetable-like hops (green onion, kale, mold). flabby texture due to low malt acid and medium to light bitterness. overall suffers from underattenuation and just generally seems stale and lifeless.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Hawthorne pub - floral with a hint of grapefruit. Fantastic aroma. It has a really good balance of a heavy bitter hop flavor and a medium sweetness to it. I definitely would, and did, have another.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Quimby street venue. Aroma of citrus and pine. Bright dark gold color with a fluffy white head. Thinnish body with creamy carbonation. Citrus and pine overwhelm the pale malt flavor. Very tasty in a grapefruit way.
