Tap at Buckeye, Looks better than it tastes, a little bland and benign I’m struggling with what makes this an IPA, I had no mosaic or amarillo in there just some lingering belgian esthers.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
100th rating. From notes. Very clear, sour aroma. Nice fruity notes from the hops, quick finish. Note much to the beer, but considering a bad winter, it coincided with all the snow haha.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a very light straw color, and disappointingly, isn’t that hazy for a white beer. There’s two fingers worth of white-colored head. While it’s not the most dense affair, it retains well and leaves good lacing behind.
S: Hrm, there’s something off about the aroma. Basically, it smells like deviled ham. Sure, I pick up some lemon and citrus notes (and it tries like hell to give off a fruity scent, too), but if you blindfolded me, I’d swear this involved a devil and the word "Underwood" on the paper covering the can.
T: This works a lot better. The Underwood deviled ham goes away, and is replaced by...well, lemon and citrus notes. Malts are pretty much imperceptible except for some finishing sweetness. All in all, it definitely brings the lemon flavors, and even tries to bring a bit of layered depth (not a lot, though.)
M: Really light in body, which is good. I do miss the crispness I would have gotten from an unfiltered white IPA, though. As a result, there’s a bit too much lingering sweetness for me.
O: I’m pretty sure my experience with the nose was an anomaly, but still, I can’t really get over the crap aroma. Everything else is pretty solid, though. I’d reckon it is worth trying.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pale yellow with a medium white head, very fine lasting lacing. Aromas
of hay, grapefruit, black pepper, biscuit, and a hint of bubblegum. Medium body, dry, velvety. A suggestion of sweet and citrus up front with a medium bitter finish that lingers. A solid brew, unusually sessionable for an IPA. If any one aspect were a little bigger, it would be really something.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Ginger Man - Houston, 1/13/14
Aroma: The nose has some fruity hops (grapefruit, citrus, etc.), and some sweet malts
Appearance: It pours a hazed orange-amber color with a small head on it
Flavor: The flavor is citrus/tropical fruits, some sweet malts, and hop bitterness
Palate: The body is light, leaning medium, with a fairly clean feel, and a dryish finish
I thought this one was pretty solid. I certainly enjoyed drinking it, and I could see it being something I’d order again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small bottle. Gold, white head. Nose of mango, fresh orange, lemon and banana esters. Flavour is really round and fruity. Very fresh tasting. Thank you beer for once again giving me these fresh fruit flavours without actually having to eat the stuff.
