2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Solid amber with a decent head. Feint hoppiness, floral-accented, but rather lackluster flavor. Grassy, more akin to a British style pale. The hops and malt don’t really come together for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at naked city. Pours a slight chill hazed dark golden with a small and loose but uniform dirty white head. The nose is really non asertive here and nothing is really jumping out. The citrus notes are faint and really blend into more of a floral/parfuminess. Also some cracker malt and faint damp grass laying under as a foundation. Sharp cracker maltiness with some medium bittering throughout with the hop profile staying really muted and floral. No flaws, but I prefer more citrus fruity hop coming through in my ipa. Since this is the first batch, I will surely revisit it again.

Draft at ncbc. Pours a burnished golden amber with a loose sudsy white head. Toasty sweet grassy nose. Creamy medium body with light carb. Toast and grass mid palate with a bit of apricot. Subdued darkly resiny finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Floral and perfumey nose, a little grass, bread, and biscuity malt notes too. Pours golden, frothy white head and great lace. Floral perfumey flavors, bread, biscuit, a little light fruit - apricot. Lingering perfumey hop flavors. Well made, enjoyable, but I would prefer more assertive hop profile.

Pint @ Naked City. Just a really blah beer. Tasted a little like carbonated green tea. Considering most of the other Naked City beers I’ve tried, this was a disappointment.
