1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not much aroma. Earthy if anything. Limited head. Watery initial mouth feel. Flavor starts peppery and moves to a bitterness that is slightly metallic. Some coffee notes. Nothing like a West Coast IPA, this is more Pale Ale, like the evil tasting twin to a delicious Mirror Pond from Deschutes. Tastes like something went wrong but they decided to keg it anyway. Can not recommend.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle split w/Travlr. Slightly hazy amber pour with a small head. Beef and Barley Campbell’s Soup aroma (serious). Some caramel and burnt brown sugar. Doesn’t smell super fresh. Taste is a bit more nimble. Crystal malt backbone. Some apricot and honey. Hot bitter finish. Not great.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the bar at the Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Looks and smells like an IPA. But it definitely doesn’t taste like a normal IPA. This is even more mild than Harpoon IPA. Still, while it doesn’t taste like an IPA, it’s nice and balanced and smooth. Maybe if it had a different style name it would get better ratings. Maybe OK-PA? And I give it a bonus point for them trying to make good beer in a state that hates alcohol so much. This beer has twice as much alcohol than the stuff they can sell at the supermarket in OK. Bravo, brave men.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; almost ruby red in color, but a bit more auburn. Aroma of fruit, earth and barley. Flavor had some spice and almost rye like qualities. A bit of a one note, but not bad

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent ipa. Not really citruscy but nicely hoppy. Easy to drink and pours a cloudy orange. Had this one at tap Werks.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours from the bottle a hazy orange with a light, off-white head. Moderate lacing. Smells of hops and citrus. Hops, malt and pine with a bit of a bitter finish. Nice mouth. This is well-balance and not as hoppy as a lot of IPAs. I like it a lot, and perfect for those times I just want a nice beer. Between Marshall, Prairie Artisan, Coop and others, I’m impressed with a lot of the beers Oklahoma breweries are putting out.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear copper with a thin white cap head. The aroma is a bit odd. Funky old stale earthy hops, a touch floral, and soil-y nutty. Taste is a bit stale and hoppy without any sweetness. Lots of oily bitterness and soiled malts.
