3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Windy City liquor. Nice seasionable beer I’d prolly drink more of if I were consistently closer. Mild citrus aromas and flavors with a bit of grassy herbal touches to it. Pours cloudy dark orange with big white head. Finish is a little spicey pepper. Full bodied caramel malt and nice sweetness to balance it all out.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I'll start by saying the aroma is not that great. The initial taste is malts and molasses....an overwhelming amount. Fortunately, hoppiness starts to calm it with a slight bitter and it mellows. Bitterness hangs on the palate softly and molasses is still noticeable. Overall, pretty disappointed.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is a ok hop with a large sweet caramel malt. Flavor is not as sweet as I thought and there is a mild hop but nothing that is really eye oepning. Finish is more of a english style malt. The hops have faded on this big time or it’s not overly hoppy. As a IPA this was ok but for a San Diego IPA this would be well down the list on a IPA you have to try.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at home. Aroma of malt, biscuit, caramel, pine resin, some orange, some grapefruit, hoppy notes. Flavour is light sweet with a medium bitter finish. Body is medium. Very malty IPA, not my favourite kind. However, as malty IPAs go this one is certainly drinkable.
