3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewery. Best beer of the night by far. Had all 8 beers they had on tap that night. This one poured an orange color with a white head. Aroma was pine, citrus and grass. Flavor was bitter but not to overly bitter. Good hop aftertaste. I would love to try a few of there other IPAS. This one was a good start.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at brewpub-hazy orange with a soapy white head. citrus nose but its a bit muddled-probably a bit old. crazy flavors-lite orange and lots of other citrus. ua decent fruity ipa but im sure it was a bit more punchy when it was fresh. i will have to retry this one if he puts it on and if im in town.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed at the brewpub. Rather dark and copper colored with a small off white blotchy foam. Plenty of fruit in the aroma with moderate malt and a bit of rye. Flavor profile is similar. Hops are floral with pine. Just a bit of citrus and spice. The fruit reigns supreme here and is quite pleasant.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a sudsy/soapy beige head. The aroma has a nice balance of toasty nutty malt and hops that are floral , tropical and piny. Medium dryish husky body with a bit of a bite and a decent amount of underscored harsh carbonation. The flavor starts with some dry nuttiness to the malt and dry, earthy and piny hops as well as some grapefruit and a bit of dry spiciness from the rye. The finish has lots of dry hops and rye. Very enjoyable IPA that’s on the dry side & that works well for me.
