Draft to pint. Looks alright; dark for an IPA though. Smells and tastes malty and hoppy, but mildly; more like a hoppy Amber. Average on the palate. Meh.

Bottle pour into shaker. Dark, hazy amber. Not real hoppy, but has a nice malt touch; bitter aftertaste. Overall a nice IPA, but I didnt take away anything to distinguish if from the many other nice IPAs.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Cincy version of Bellís two Heated Ale. It is a bouquet of floral citrus and grapefruit aroma and flavor. It has a nice malt backbone for balance as well. A fine beer and a worthy entry into the moerlein family.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma- very hop focused that is citrus and fruity american hop not very much malt comes through at all.
Appearance- pours a clear medium amber, kind of like a reddish gold, with a white foamy head and lots of nice
Flavor-Hops, american hops, citrusy like the aroma but the malt comes through once the bitterness coats the mouth. Balanced pretty well but definitely hop heavy
Mouthfeel- smooth with lots of little bubbles rushing over the tongue, feel like there is a liitle yeast ester or astringency, may be the hops still. Not a huge body but good for the style
overall impression- I like this drinkable IPA, and Iím trying not to be biased about local ohio craft brew but I do like this although it is not even close to my favorite for this style, the hop mixture left me wanting

Taste of Cincinnati. Good and smooth, yet crisp, taste. Refreshing for an IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This brew is a slightly cloudy amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Citrus, hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of fruit and sweet malt in the background. The finish is short and hoppy. Slightly above average overall.

On tap at the lager house. Hazy orange color with a thin sticky off white head. Grassy hop nose. Flavor of bitter orange, grapefruit rind, and grass. Some bready malts but mostly hops. Not your usually pnw ipa, but still pretty tastey.

Clear, light yet bright orange color with pillowy white head. Herbaceous and floral hops with a slight basement feel on the nose. Bold palate that has a lingering bitter finish. Slight hints of minerality throughout the palate as well.

Somewhat mild for an IPA, I like this one. A good amber color with minimal head, it goes down very smooth.
