2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A bread-like aroma suggests malts that never show up -- just average bitterness. Relieved there were just two of these in the variety pack.

16oz can at Miller Park. Pours a dark amber color with a tan head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, pine, a little bready malt. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, caramel, some bitter pine hops, with a light bitter finish. A nice beer, but an underwhelming IPA.

Hops hit you immediately with a sweet flavor. Goes down smooth with the perfect amount of carbonation. Finish is surprisingly bitter but still enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours orange and bursting with hoppy citrus and grass. A faint head that doesn’t stick around too long. The taste is complex with both sweet and bitter grapefruity notes. Finishes bitter and delicious

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazed orange pour with a khaki head. Mediocre hop aroma of grass, flowers, pine, and orange peel. A bit of green apple, straw, and some sweet caramel. The taste is kind of astringent and bitter. Pine, grass, and floral hop notes, mild citrus, and some sweet caramel and bread notes.

Cloudy off brown pour tall dense light tan head with nice lacing. Fruity light citrus and grass aroma. Avg palate. Quite sweet subtle bitterness in the swallow. Easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a bad IPA. For once, an American IPA isn’t overwhelmingly hoppy. This is fairly well balanced and its hop v. malt profile approaches a pale ale. Not bad at all. Tried with Josh N. in 2013.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle pours a hazy amber color with a fluffy white head and some lacing. Arome is simply floral hops and caramel malts, but not strong. Flavor is more malty than hoppy, but has a dry finish. Medium body with just the right amount of carbonation. Easy to drink, but not very memorable.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours a beautiful burnt orange with minimal white head. Not a strong aroma, though does have a hint of caramel, and just simply smells hoppy. First sip left a strong bitter aftertaste, but quickly became less bitter.
