3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Piney hop aroma with some tropical floral hops. Taste is a slight sweet carmelized malty with a piney hop finish and some floral hops. Malt balances the hops nicely and it is not too resinous. Has a bit of yeasty finish that makes it a bit dirty, but still overall a nice IPA. Note: says canned 11-11-15 and I had it 10-6-16, would think this would be a bit better fresh for sure. The dirty yeasty may be due to age?---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from a pint glass, a really nice traditional English IPA, nice malt base with nice earthy hops, usually not a big fan of dry hopping with EKGs.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2015 BJCP Category: 21A American IPA
AROMA: Mostly orange citrus; slight pine; perhaps some green tea. Low clean malt presence - not sweet, though. No alcohol. 9/12
APPEARANCE: Burnished copper/rusty orange hue. Very hazy body. Large, off-white soapy foam. Moderately high retention and lacing. 2/3
FLAVOR: Amber malt base, though flavor is more clean than sweet. Bitterness is moderate with hop flavors of pine and orange. Finishes with a smoke flavor - seems to be a rauchbier IPA though there’s no indication of this on the can or brewery’s website. Could be tannins,sulfur, phenols, and/or very piney/resiny hops. Interesting palette. 14/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body; smooth texture. Med-low CO2. Seems a tad flat. Hops linger but are not astringent. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: An IPA with smoke character is interesting, but I’m not sure if that flavor is intentional. Otherwise, a rather typical, no-frills IPA. 7/10
TOTAL SCORE: 36/50

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a small sized head of foamy with a frothy top finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent weak yellow orange colored body and a very good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The semi-sharp flavor contained notes of hops. An OK brew just nothing special.
