2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours a slightly orange-ish copper with a decent head. Not too much nose. Mouthfeel on the watery side, and while the hop content is good, it’s not overwhelming. Meh.

Very nice ipa. Not overly hoppy but a nice subtle balance of hops and flavor. Would be perfect in the summer

Lovely amber pour into snifter. Piney aroma, balanced flavor although a subtle bitterness that stays in the mouth for some time after. Good beer.

Taste is mostly bitter with a nice biscuit sweetness. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes bitter with notes of grapefruit, lemon rind, flowers, blackberry and bread. A solid session IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice looking brownish amber appearance, pretty good fresh hop aroma, piney and citrus with some malty balance. Taste brings forth more maltiness along with some bitter hops - citrus, pine and grapefruit. Ok but more malty than I prefer my IPA’’s.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dark orange amber color, off-white head cover, bands of lace. Taste is caramel malt that adds solid hops in the palate, both sides moving in tandem through a long finish. Solid brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber to copper pour with a 1 finger, soapy white head. Aroma is bright tart orange citrus, biscuit, mineral notes and some sweet malt, fruity and floral notes. Flavor is biscuit and caramel up front, light toasted yeasty bread, floral, citrus and spicy hops, and a hint of apple skin and herbal hops toward the finish. Lightish body, creamy to syrupy entry, quickly drying toward the fairly dry, maybe even a tad astringent finish with a medium, blanketing and sharp carbonation. Pretty good stuff, but there’s definitely better at the price point.
