3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange pour with an off-white head and some lacing. Nose is pine and citrus. Taste is same as nose with an addition of earth and malt. Mouthfeel was pedestrian. Finish was malty sweet at first, but it later developed a nice bitter taste.

16oz can. Large off-white head atop lightly hazed light amber body, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit/lemon, some pine, light spicy. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some grape. Watery light-medium body, very drinkable -- tastes like a 4% beer, but the can clearly says 7%.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A hop focused but not "over the top" beer, Johnny’s American IPA hits a sweet spot. Malt adds complexity and creates balance while yielding to grapefruit hop expression. A touch of pine adds a highlight.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 ounce can thanks to Craig. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a large white head. A smooth fresh hop nose, biscuit. Some resin, caramel, green hops, oranges. The flavor has a big earthy slight malt that I don’t love, but the hop profile grew on me. Pretty nice really.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can. Picked up a 4 pack of these at the brewpub where I was informed (and the help appeared genuinely proud of this) that this is their “Full Strength” IPA. Only in mormon country would any brewer feel compelled or feel proud to make such a claim. I have never heard of anything even remotely like this. Odd and silly at the same time. The can pours out with a clear deep gold body that supports a white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up some sharp citrusy hops followed by mild pine hops, a dash of soapiness and sweet to mildly roasty malts. The taste is pretty hoppy with bitter grapefruit and the malt sweetened tangerine flowing into a bit of pine and sweet maltiness. This is a nice IPA.
