3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12 ounce bottle purchased as part of a Mt. Carmel variety 12 pack from Delhi Township Kroger. Nice medium amber hue, medium white head, sweet piney/fruity aroma, amply assertive bittersweet flavor with an underlying sweetness that’s a litle different than that of other IPAs I’ve had. Solid brew.

Bottle. I rather like the label. Aroma is blandish. Malty. Same with taste. Really not very good. Maybe its old? I dunno but meh at best.

Soft for as IPA. Initial citrus notes that grows into a piney taste. Initial hoppy taste up front that fades quickly. AtMt Carmel brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft: bitter, but not awesome. Plight golden orange with a white head. Fruit and pine dominate this with a earthy taste over it all. Good... Not great.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty IPA. Not the norm and not really what I’m looking for in an IPA. Just too much going on.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle scooped up at Dutch’s in Cincinnati. Unfiltered orange-tan body with a steady off-white head. Cool, crisp aroma. Classic US IPA, maybe leaning towards the East with its chewy malt tones. Hops are ever-present, but never really dominating. Overall this is better than most IPAs out there, I’d gladly scoop up a sixpack of it.

12 ounce bottle, poured an amber color with aromas of hops, light spice, and some grapefruit. Flavors were the same, light citrus followed by some light spicy hops, with a touch of bitterness on the backend.
