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.

On tap at the Milwaukee Ale House. This was definitely the best of my visit there. A little on the thin side in the body, but a solid version of the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint Can. Copper with small off white head. Aroma of resinous and pine hops with some malt notes. Medium/full body, medium/heavy hop bitterness with a nice creaminess, but not much of a malt backbone.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mildly hazy orange with a thin foamy head, abundant lacing and very little carbonation. Aroma of citrus hops, caramel malts, and mild floral hops. Flavor is more of the resin side with some grapefruit and citrus hop notes, subtle floral hops and caramel. Heavy body with some mild carbonation. Pretty good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from can. Not overly impressed here, the hop profile is aggressive whilst forgetting to hold together the backbone with any discernible balancing notes.

Pours dark copper. Lots of head. Citrus hops and tons of caramel malt sweetness. Not great.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very drinkable IPA. Nothing special, not too hoppy or bitter for being an IPA. Would drink again though.

High sweetness, lacking in hops. Not too impressed with this one. Just OK.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a copper-gold with massive head (almost too much so). Aroma is of grass, grain, malt--where are the hops? Flavor is very grassy, with malt and very little in the way of hops--none of the characteristic citrus or piney bitterness. A disappointment.
