2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Market Street. Cloudy deep blonde to amber with thick lace. Light caramel crystal malt nose with citrus cascade and a bit of pepper. Smooth and creamy, more crystal flavor than I need, with a pepper hop character. Too full bodied really. Some diacetyl too. Very astringent, dirty finish. Rather sloppy.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gold or dark yellow, good head. Tons of fresh, almost green hop aroma. Most disappears in the taste and the bitterness isn’t much more than an American Pale Ale. Still, a very nice beer.

Tap at the Ringlers location. Hazy dark gold pour with a thin white head. Nice resiny citrus hop aroma. Smooth crisp malt with a resiny citrusy hop taste. Nice fresh IPA, otherwise not too distinct.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle shared with deyholla, thanks Derek! Pours a cloudy golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is stale hops, peachy plastic, pines, some citrus, alcohol, and caramel. Flavor is better. Not so stale and plastic filled. A good amount of pines and earth with a light citrus. Solid caramel backing with some cereal graininess and some floral fruits. Finishes dry with a moderate bitterness. Lighter body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, not sure when this was bottled, but it didn’t taste too fresh. The hops just seemed off.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Super hazy orange with very little head but okay lacing. Smells of grapefruit and biscuit and tastes of the same. A little stale in the palate, but not nearly as bad as their other IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at barley mill. Pours a hazy darke golden amber with a decent foamy beige head. Bright citrusy orange and grapefruit hops. Pinen more grapefruit. Cereal and caramel flavor. Has a nice pine and grapefruit bite. Really nice. Malt profile is a bit muddled, but really nice hop character. A good pint.
