3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy, light amber color with a diminished head of tiny bubbles forming a lid and a nice sheet of lace. Initial burst of fresh hops slowly gives way to some caramel and floor malt scents. Hops continue to stay in the background, but do not always require full attention. Moderately sweet. A floral hops presence. Some caramel and dough flavors creep in. A very light fruitiness. Call it east coast or traditional, I like it. Perhaps it leans toward just being a pale ale, but it doesnít show itís strength. Balanced and drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI (July 2016), served slightly above fridge temp from a Carlyle pint glass. Lovely pour - translucent dark amber/copper with a slow-diminishing choppy head, much lacing...resinous aroma initially, giving way to some mango/apricot pitted fruit notes, some caramel...on the tongue itís rather syrupy in texture, caramel-sweet, a bit of toasty malt underpinning the thing, bitterness fairly light, though growing somewhat towards the finish, which is dry and lightly cardboard-accented. Fairly full-bodied, a bit sticky actually. Meh, itís drinkable enough but kind of a mess overall. Not sure Iíve had a really good beer from this brewery yet; I do like their old-school labels though, have to give them some credit for that.

Iím surprised at the rating so far for this one, because I donít think itís quite that bad. Itís certainly not a particularly good beer, but itís not a bad one either. As an IPA it misses the mark of the style, but itís still quite drinkable. Lots of caramel malty sweetness, with a tiny hint of citrus hops and mild bitterness. I do get a tiny hint of that metallic taste others have noted also. I wouldnít buy it again, but itís not terrible.

Can (16 oz). Orange-Amber color. Citrus hop aroma. Orange citrus with grapefruit notes upfront followed by malt and some pine resin in the finish. Creamier mouthfeel than many IPAs.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-red pour with a light beige head. Aroma is pine hops. Taste is a weaker hop flavor that seems to be more of a pale ale to me. More malty than hops. OK lacing.
