2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours copper with minimal white head. Smells like pine and citrus, some melon, but overall fairly nondistinct, though pleasant enough. Taste is dry, slightly citrusy, some hay-like malt backbone, but the flavors give way to the bitter, sticky finish fairly quickly.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark amber with an orange hue and loads of chunkies floating around. Hmmm.... Aroma of caramel malt and dank hops. Taste is medium bitter. resinous hops and a little honey. Full bodied with a thick texture. Carbonation on the fizzy side and a decently long finish. Overall, meh. Drinkable but kinda weird. Nothing to seek out.

Nose has some citrus, hops profile is decent but malt balance is disappointing. Neither bad nor good

12oz bottle-lt tan head with trailing lace-hazy to cloudy amber/orange with particulants in the last part of the bottle. A-resin, citrus-orange, med malt-toasty. T-follows. Nice.

12oz bottle pours a hazy amber with a large khaki head. Aroma is malt forward with fruits and dryness from the hops. Taste has a bland caramel malt with some dry earthy paper tasting bitter hops. I’ll avoid this one in the future for better options.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 bottle. Unfiltered orange-copper color. Steady creamy off-white head. Really well balanced. No new schools citra/garlic hops. just a really nice classic American IPA. Drinkable, but still has a nice depth. Straightforward, but well done.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden/copper color. Had this side by side with a number of similar beers, and this one can out the worse for the comparison. Not very tight in the flavor profile, with some murkiness amid the hops. Not my style of IPA. (on tap, Groveland Tap, St. Paul)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is mild pine and citrus and some malt. Flavor is a little citrus and mostly malt. Not sure if it’s an old bottle, but this one just doesn’t do it for me.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark caramel/toffee color with a 1 finger white head that thins to a slight lace. Aroma is really nice hop forward with sweet malt. Taste leaves something to be desired, the hop aroma doesn’t shine through in the taste and has a metallic hint on the finish. Overall not great.
