2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sorta strange. Really harshly bitter, but without a pleasant hop citrus brightness. Mostly pine in the aroma, no sweet backbone to balance a very earthy dry mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle--->nonic. Pours a golden orange with a thin soapy white head and no lace. Aroma is heavy caramel and light grass. Taste is extra sweet/caramel malt and a faint hint of grassy hops with no bite. Decent medium palate with good carb. Pretty boring midwest tasting IPA.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sisters pours a hazy apple juice light amber with no real lace to speak of. Light Hop nose with just a hint of sweet and salavatingly enticing astringentness. Body is fizzy on the tongue. Taste is Very dry with just a hint of bitters and sweetness on the finish. Mostly all aftertaste. Somehow I would have liked just a bit more.

Bottle. Hazy orange, no head. Very plain smell for an IPA, lots of bread and yeast. Taste is similar, a little hop bite in there too. Not much to see here folks.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber with a decent white head. Left some lace. Aroma was very laid back, full of bready malt, light grassy hops, a faint citrus if you hunt for it. Flavors were grassy and bitter, good touch of caramel from top to bottom. Mouthfeel was nice, on the medium to full side with nice carbonation. Overall this was decent but very forgettable at the same time.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Bottled on: 07.25.12.
Appearance: Pours a hazy, golden-copper body with a moderate-sized, white head. Not too much lacing going on here.
Smell: Pale, bready malts but not overly effusive; fairly subtle, then, the citrusy, leafy, grassy hops with its implied bitterness.
Taste: Pale malts, touch of brioche, with a low, low caramel quality. Large amounts of citrus, heavy on the grassiness, light on the resins. Moderate bitterness. Growing, raw grassiness on the back half carrying the bitterness through to the smooth, bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. A scant bit oily, but also a bit creamy.
Overall: Good if you like’m grassy.
