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.

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.

From a can.
The beer pours a hazy orangish gold with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is a little sweet with some grassy & citrusy hops.
The flavor is nice enough, sweeter and more malt forward than I usually like my IPAs to be. The bitterness balances this to a degree and itís got some nice spicy and fruity hop character.
Not really my style of IPA, good enough though... Iíve had worse from "cooler" breweries.

Bottle - Pours lightly hazy light amber with a huge fluffy off white head. Light citrus/herbal hopping on the nose and a bit of lightly toasted malt. Balanced. Taste is roughly the same, with a hint of nuttiness. A touch of mineral, and not much hoppiness, even through the finish. Light bodied, a little slick, and nice carbonation. Pretty subtle, but very balanced.

This is a nice IPA that tastes and drinks pretty good but doesnít have anything particularly compelling going on in the aroma. The texture is a high point, nice and creamy w/ gentle carbonation. Overall, itís forgettable but Iíd say itís better than most forgettable beers.

Aroma is pine, citrus and malts. The flavor is grapefruit, berries, citrus, bready malts and a bitter finish.

Single bottle from Binnyís Build-a-Six rack. Nice copper IPA color with a thick, slightly orange-ish head. Slightly citrus and pine hop smell. Taste is up front with hop bitterness.After a thousand IPAs, it gets hard to say what makes one different from the other, but this does have a slightly larger malt backing, even if it does support a pretty standard hop balance. But as a year-round beer, you canít expect too many non-repeatable variations.

Pours orange and bursting with hoppy citrus and grass. A faint head that doesnít stick around too long. The taste is complex with both sweet and bitter grapefruity notes. Finishes bitter and delicious

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Joe and served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours an amber hue with a great lasting head and above average lacework. the aroma has very light dankness, some citrus and pine along with plenty of bready and caramel malt notes. A bit soapy as well. The taste is restrained bitterness, light candied fruit and some toasted bread with slight sweetness from crystal malts. The mouth feel is smooth and quaffable. Really a tad underwhelming in this day and age of rip ur face off IPAís... more akin to an APA than IPA.

Can. Slight haze, orange copper pour with a foamy head. Citrus and floral hop, some caramel sweetness. Bitterness is moderate. Not bad.
