2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On draft, Schlafly Beer Fest. An abysmal example of an IPA - tasted more like a commercialized (like Bud or Coors?) version of a Pale Ale. Hops were virtually unnoticed, and what there was left me scratching my head. English or American style (as advertised). Along with MPís Train Wreck, the only beers I dumped and couldnít finish at the Fest.

Bottle. Piney orange hops and caramel malt aroma. Hazy orange amber with a large ivory head. Resinous piney hops and weedy dandelion flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Could use some malt balance.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks jsquire. Pours a soft copper amber with one finger of sandy tan head. Herbal notes in the nose with a soft leafy quality and a bready character. Diacetyl comes through with notes of caramel malt. A slight toasted bread character and sweetness shows through as well. Medium in body with a sharp finish.

Bills itself as a balanced ipa and that is what it is. Not going to win awards but it is drinkable. Contrary to the description I am content with one. Berry sweet aroma, slight grassiness, mellow flavor, medium to low bitterness.

A thick and hoppy ipa. Pine nose. Resinous bitterness in the finish. Somewhat on the sweet size. This is a nic, big beer but unexceptional.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft at the tap room - Pours lightly hazy orange and has a citrus rich aroma featuring orange and grapefruit. It tastes moderately to strongly bitter with ample grapefruit flavor. The palate is bubbly and itís medium bodied. Thereís the expected bitter finish and itís a bit more crisp than the hops in some of their other beers. Thatís a good thing. Pretty good brew.

Poured from bottle, pours a clear copper with a thin white head, the aroma and flavor has a nice hop bitterness with a balance of the malt, pretty light and easy drinking. Enjoyable but nothing that will blow your socks off.

This bottled brew poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized most lasting off white colored bubbles thaat left behind a poor lacing and transparent light orange brown colored softly carbonated body. The aroma was a mild dough malt and the palate was tiny froms start to finish. The flavor wA nice crisp happy one.
