3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - Nice light citrus hops. Cloudy orange brown with a rich beige head. Sweet and perfumy which tends to be much like their other beers. On the thin side which makes it very sessionable, but underwhelming for an IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer is a deeply hazy, pale amber color that is topped by a frothy, very sticky (to the sides of the glass), tan colored head. Earthy crystal malt aromatics are quickly followed by muddled grapefruit and citrus zest notes.
Nice citrus hop notes up front, are then muddled by a mix of abundant yeast flavors and crystal malt character towards the middle and finish. This has a slight bitterness to it, in addition to a huge yeast bite.
Tastes like this is straight from the primary fermentation, really yeast laden still and really needs to be conditioned properly prior to having been served. This might have been fairly tasty if it was not for this fact.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Dark amber. Earthy, fruity aroma. Fruity character is quite unique. Earthy and balanced. Not really IPA, but I like it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ brewpub. Dark red, murky. Doesn’t look like an IPA at all. Described as English style. Smells fruity. Cherry is big here, especially in the flavors that are huge bing cherry. So much, I would swear there were cherries added. Fun brew. Bitter ending reminds of hop but is balanced throughout. Love the cherry beginning and herbal bitter that follows makes for and interesting rustic brew.
