4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from local Smith’s. Dark golden pour with quickly dissipating white head, very light carbonation. Like its Red Ale brother, the hops aroma is loud and proud, announcing itself as soon as you pop the cap. Excellent citrusy west coast IPA hop profile, not unlike Stone, although the malt profile is much thinner and more agreeable IMO. All in all, a VERY good IPA!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
the description is, "Our favorite aromatic and bittering hops deliver a fragrant citrus aroma and snappy hop character to this eminently quaffable IPA." unfortunately none of this is true. Its a sweet malty lightly hopped unbalanced mess. Blech.

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.
