3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2012 Another good Midwest IPA that is better than its rating indicates! Good citrus smell, light aftertaste - yet no mistaking about this being an IPA: good hoppy finish, crisp, lighter, subtle. Holds up a against a lot of the bigger names: try this one! SIX-PACK RE-RATE: Bumping this up further - my prior rating came merely from an event sampling. Aroma has gotten somewhat pea-soup-like from sitting in the fridge for awhile, but compelled to notch this up in both palate and overall score - really amazed at the mouthfeel and body for an IPA here - this is a super-drinkable IPA that is downright refreshing without sacrificing the classic IPA hop-kick. One of the most sessionable IPAs Iíve had.

Hazy orange-amber pour into lingering frothy head that slowly dissipates into melting lacing around the glass. Aroma of sweet caramel, spruce and malty biscuit. Initial flavor of orange peel and malty caramel that fades into a bitter piney hop-grapefruit finish.

Little yellow head, red-orange beer. Orange marmalade, smell of decaying leaves. Orange marmalade returning in the mouth, very bitter, but also oxydize, old-tasting. Tired, oxydated, flat MF. Sample obviously not in very good condition, pity.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle purchased at Lukas Liquors in Overland Park, Kansas. The pour is a hazed amber brown with a 1/2 inch off white head that falls right away. The aroma is citrus orange fruit, toasty malt, and a bit of dry grass in the back. The taste is mostly the malt, a toasted, almost char maltiness, then some of the grass from the nose. The citrus isnít really present in the taste. The palate is medium bodied, lower carbonation level with a flinty, mineral almost dusty finish. Overall, this reminded me more of an Amber Ale. Granted, I enjoyed it, just was expecting more hop presence - perhaps this was older, bottle was not dated so who knows.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark copper with next to no head. The aroma is almost nonexistent which is fitting because the beer is thin and bland. Thereís a hint of hops somewhere in the middle and it finishes dry but not else much is going on. It is one of the least flavorful IPAís Iíve ever had. Pretty disappointing cause the label was interesting. I donít recommend!

Tap at Mikeís Wine Dive, Wichita, KS. Pours a decent amber with a nose of sweet rosy grapefruit and a hint of breaded orange rind. Flavor is malty grapefruit with a backbone of orange rind. Lingers on the tongue. Tasty.
