Meh IPA. Murky orange colored. Aroma was malty and citrus. Taste was metallic with some chewy bitter hop bite. Better options.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, poured into a pint glass. The aroma is a dry floral and grassy grapefruit. It pours a clear copper, effervescent body with a clean, white fuzz that leaves moderate retention and good web lace. The taste is a medium bitter with just slightly less sweet; nearly balanced. The texture is oily and thin with a fuzzy carbonation and a medium light body. The up front flavor is bitter grapefruit and herb, with a background caramel note that emerges late. The finish is zippy and crisp with a grass and grapefruit flavor. The aftertaste is bread crust and grapefruit rind. It’s refreshing and dry; nothing too fancy, just a classic example of an IPA.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours murky blonde with a small white head. Nose is lacking and standard. flavor is very hop forward but fades quickly to a mild finish. Drinkable but unimpressive.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I sampled the blood orange eye patch first, which I found to be better. Maybe the extra citrus balance it out more, but I wasn’t the biggest fan of the balance and quality of this one. Had an unfiltered, darker hazy yellow to orange appearance. Some tropical and ctirus flavors ,with the balance leaning towards the sweeter malts vs. featured hops. About average for the style.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap @ the Atlanta Fish Market, Atlanta/Buckhead, Georgia. Golden pour W/weak head. No lacing on the glass. Nose is quite grainy. Rather astringent. but hoppy flavor with bitter aftertaste. But there are some weird flavors floating around in it that makes it strange. Not sure what they were trying to do here, but they failed. Just below mediocre.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy amber with a creamy white head.
Aroma has a little of that bready/spray paint thing....
Lively carbonation and tingle...orange and caramel malt taste.
Definitely a lot of metal and odd notes in here.....
Aaaaar,...perhaps it be gold I’m tastin’.......not very good, I’m afraid...worse than my pirate talk.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from Ed5388, thanks slappy. Poured an alright looking chill hazed orangey-amber with a smaller mostly white foamy head. Aroma is pretty nice, fruity, pineapple, passion fruit, light citrus, vanilla and toast. Medium to fuller mouthfeel with softer carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor isn’t as good as the aroma, notes of grassy hops, old tropical fruits, citrus rinds. Okay overall.
