4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into tulip. Appearance is a hazy golden-orange with a huge light tan head. Aroma is lots of citrus, especially grapefruit. Taste is an interesting balance of malt and citrus hops. There is a bit of a strange, piney aftertaste. Nice smooth feel. Overall, a solid IPA, though not quite on par with the best.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rollicking, frothy, bone-colored head on a slightly foggy bronze brew. Stumpy bottle. Marginally soapy, casting central AIPA aroma. Good. Threatens to go sweet, but I thought it had an understated richness and good style balance. Bitter, interesting, malty. I didn’t get big esters or resin. A bare-knuckled brew, in a semi-UK rendition. Wish I bought a six instead of just one. ABC Liquors, Betton.

A pretty nice all day kind of IPA. Nice hops and in the nose and flavor. Good malt balance, not too sweet. Some citrus, lemon, orange, spice.

A metal ipa? Metallic aroma with some hops, taste is like eating a basketball rim that has been sitting in a box of stale hops.

On tap at Ann Arbor. Pours somewhat clear golden amber with a white head. Aroma is so pleasant with floral spring slightly sweet hops. Flavor brings less sweetness and more balanced bitter hop flavors with a dry herby ending.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Jolly Pumpkin, Ann Arbor. A clear, amber colored beer topped by a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite malty, with some caramel and bread, but most of all resiny, citrus hops. Grass too. It’s smooth and full bodied, semi dry. There’s a nice bitterness in the mouth, and bready malts in the back. Lasting smooth finish. Nice indeed, but too malty for me. 150614

Pretty clean scent. Pours a light, murky orange color. A decent amount of bready taste, with some hops bitterness. A standard IPA. Nothing bad about it. Unsure of the price point. Decent.
