On tap a few weeks back in SLC. (Bayou). Color was quite attractive; a copper/red. Aroma was florally and yeasty; quite nice as well. Flavor of flowers, bread and earth. Mildly hopped, but it worked out nicely.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of THE douglas88, thanks again. Pours brownish copper with gold hues and thin white head. The aroma has notes of malts, crystal malts, hints of pine hops and grapefruit hops. The taste is full of malts to go along with a mild amount of roast then moving toward a modest level of pine hoppiness. Toward the finish a bit of hops return with a bit more hop bitterness than before and lingering into the after taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber pour with a small foamy head. Pine hops and toasty caramel malt in the aroma and flavor. Light and well carbonated on the palate. Not a bad brew, just not a lot going on in it. I would say this is closer to a middle of the road APA than an IPA.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle… Clear, light amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Earthy, resiny aroma provides notes of sweaty socks, leather and grapefruit. Light to medium-bodied with middling carbonation. Perfectly-balanced flavor, but nondescript and thin. Crisp, lightly bitter finish. Bottle provided by Douglas88!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewery. For whatever reasons, I just wasn’t into this much. Maybe it was the lacking IPA body from being 4% ABV, or possibly it was a bit too malty and not hoppy enough, but whatever it was, I didn’t dig it much. Can pass for an APA, but it is definitely not an IPA. Slight spice not was nice though! Fairly carbonated and caramely as well. Drinkable, just not up to standards.
