2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pour, golden clear with thin white head, some lacing. Aroma is hop resins, flavor is astringent hop bitterness with hardly any malt balance. Quick bitter finish. Not enough late addition hops or malt profile in this recipe, underwhelming IPA.

Bottle. Lighter visuals, bordering on yellow while a bit hazy. Decent floral aroma; light character overall, but a nice sessionably easy to drink, slightly puckering ale. (#5884, 12/13/2014)

This one is a perfect score for me. This has everything I could ever want in an IPA. So much citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. The taste is hoppy and bitter but not overly bitter. Itís so well balanced, and complex. Theres something I canít figure out and itís so good. This is a phenomenal IPA.

Can dated 10/20/14, gotten as a trade extra. Thanks! Pours mostly clear golden orange color with a one finger white creamy head. Nice citrus and pine aroma, light grassiness, mild sweetness, nice. Flavor is light citrus, some sweet pineapple, but of mango, mild bitter. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy gold pour with a nice foamy head that fades to a nice film. Aroma is slightly dank. Juicy citrus and light caramel. Tastes smooth but could use some more hops really. Sweet pale malt and light caramel stick out the most with a hint of juicy citrus and flowers. Very little bitterness. Medium body. Decent IPA.

On tap at Scratch Bar June 2013. Not as hoppy as some ipaís but thatís not a bad thing. Easy to drink IPA.

Can left over from my sad drive to St. Louis. Not much aroma, but whatís there smells nice enough and like it might be an IPA.
amber, golden, clear, minimal head, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, kind of dank, sort of SD style. medium body, slick feel, soft carbonation, astringent.
So itís not bad. Maybe some of the dank SD stuff is there but itís not balanced out by whatever it is Stone and Pizza Port do. But, in terms of my road trip beer, it was way better than AZ beer, TX beer, and OK beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can, poured while starting to cook a late breakfast and waiting for the early Cubs game to start. F it, itís a day off, iím going to watch baseball and catch a buzz before noon. This is a nice one to look at. slightly dark straw body with a big ol fluffy ass white head. aroma hit me from the moment i cracked the can and got better as i poured it. light grass, bit of pine and something like a tangerine rind. Shit, apparently i have a busted lip cause that burned just a bit as i took a sip. much milder flavor than i anticipated. a true ipa, not some double in disguise, and i like that. malt is prevalent with an even bitterness throughout. light citrus that gets a bit more aggressive on the back end. full body that envelopes the tongue and just feels right. i know breakfast will turn out all right, now if my Cubs can just get a rare win for me, or at least play a decent game it is going to be alright.

Slight white head ultra clear with an almost Pilsner color (slightly more tan). Aroma of citra hops. Citrus overall. Overall decent ipa, Croat clean and, of course , hoppy.
