3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours an golden orange with just a wisp of head and some soapy lace. Nose of grapefruit, tangerine, grass. Medium body, mild to moderate bitterness. Decent hop flavor with a slightly off-putting finish.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This IPA was a bit metallic and very high alkaline. Not very enjoyable and I'm not sure why the decent ratings. Maybe it was a bad can.

Too malty and not my style of IpA. Full of English malt and not too enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Brewery
APPEARANCE – turbid light golden brown. long lasting pure white head with good lacing.
NOSE - Amazing scent of floral hops w/ a hint of citrus. As it warms up & the head dwindles, smells more like piney IPA flavors.
FLAVOR – Doesn’t match the nose. Tastes a bit like a stale west coast ipa.
NOTES - I wish it tasted like it smelled.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really fresh, vibrant hop aroma (floral, a little citrusy) with some honeycomb maltiness in the background. Reminds me a of a newly opened package of hop pellets... Cloudy golden color with an off-white head. Average maltiness with a really good layer of hops heaped on top. Floral, herbal and slightly citrusy hops; moderate bitterness. Medium-bodied, cask-like mouthfeel. Very nice Pale Ale overall. Extremely flavorful and sessionable for the style (I would call it an ENGLISH-style IPA).

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Pours a slightly hazy copper body under a one finger foamy beige head that had decent retention. The nose is pretty terrible for an IPA, it’s all super husky and grainy, it smells like a bag of crushed grain. Where’s the damn hops? The flavor is just as husky and grainy, without much hop flavor at all. There’s a fair amount of bitterness on the finish, but this doesn’t taste like an IPA at all. It’s a little overly sweet throughout as well. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation and a lingering bitter and husky finish. Not a terrible beer maybe, but one of the worst IPAs I’ve had in a while.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12oz can at home. Weird earth and dirt yet fruit taste. Slightly dank taste throws off some pretty good qualities in this beer. Kind of sort of enjoyed it but I can't say it is that great
