3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz.. bottle. Aroma of sweet, nutty, lightly toasted malt and citric, fruity hop, with notes of caramel, orange, grapefruit, apricot and faint pine. Hazy light-medium orange-amber color with a lasting, creamy, off-white head and very nice lacing. Some sediment present, which was largely left behind in the bottle. Flavor profile is surprisingly malty and sweet for the style, with plenty of caramel and orange creamsicle throughout, supported by mild, leafy, citric hop flavors and a light-moderate amount of bitterness that appears fairly late. Finishes fairly sweet and malty, again, with some dark brown sugar aspects. Smooth and full on the palate with lots of very fine effervescence, body is medium. Pleasant. Not going to satiate the hopheads among us, though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle in Tulsa. Light caramel aroma with a little bit of citrus. Pours caramel colored with a thin white head and no lacing. Starts with caramel flavor. Finishes smooth with light orange citrus flavors. Pretty good, but lacks any hoppiness that usually accompanies an ipa.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy copper color, thin white head. Earthy aroma. Grassy taste upfront; bitter. Finishes with a dose of earthiness. Solid balance. Nice go-to IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Painted Horse in Bartlesville, OK. Served in a pint glass, aroma of strong citrus/earthy hops and caramel malt. Taste adds notes of grass, kind of rosary, slight nuttiness with earthy/piney hop bitterness. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, dry, creamy with lingering bitterness. Kind of harsh with earthy bitterness, alright.

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.
