3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not much of a departure from the big swell. Maybe a little more tame. Gave it a lower overall because I prefer the big swell.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
GABF 2013. Pours an orangish appearance with a cream colored head. Kind of stale like the other IPA I had by Maui at GABF. Papery, dull citrusy, cracker malty aroma. Bland malts, tangerine, somewhat herbal hoppy, stale flavor. I really wonder if this keg was sent in less than ideal shape.
