Draft in Iowa. Red-amber with good, creamy, off-white head / Nose of sour malt, bread, and citrus / Medium, chewy, body, bright and lively, with good balance and dry, lightly bitter, finish / Flavors of sour malt, brown sugar, bread, grapefruit, orange, and dry hops / Not a classically defined IPA, more of an amber ale, but a very fine brew.

Bottle. Nice reddish gold pour with a good foamy clingy white head. Aroma is caramel malts and a touch of grass. Medium palate. Taste is caramel and toffee forward, some citrus hops, and an earthy element. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle pour. Hazy dark gold copper, with a spare head and OK lacing. Aroma is some hops of indistinguishable character, lots of sweet malt. Toffee and caramel. Taste is a bit of citrus hops, a touch of pine resin, lots of caramel malt sweetness. Slightly grainy. Something a bit metalic on the end. Slightly sweet finish, not really any lasting bitterness. Meh.

Hazy copper orange with nice dense head and lace. Doughy malty aroma with mild orange hop. Sweet honey peach biscuit with mildly bitter grassy finish. Nothing especially good or bad about it. Decent creamy palate. Non-descript.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle: Poured a nice orange color, light aroma with a thin head. I would not call this beer an IPA, sense there not much of a hop presence. Not a bad pale ale, would go good at any cook out.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light orange color. Mild hop and aroma and flavor, making this a very drinkable ipa, if not especially flavorful or aromatic.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Bottle] Pours a light amber color with a thin head. Generally hoppy aroma of grass, light citrus and grapefruit. Muddled taste of grassy hops and caramel malts. Some astringent grain husks in the finish. Soapy. This beer didn’t really come together in the way I expected, especially for an IPA.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Slightly cloudy orange brew with thin head. Pleasant hoppy aroma. Overall well balanced and nice ale - mild grains with a decent hops bite. Not extreme but still nice.
