3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Odd Side during my Christmas trip to Michigan.
Pours a light yellow color with a good white head and loads of spotty lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward a pretty-heavy Amarillo component with a good dose of citrus as well. Flavor hits the same notes, but isn’t quite as pungent. Light body with a dry finish. Quite bitter. Solid. Boom.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Odd Side. Cloudy, dirty yellow body, thin off-white head. Nose of pure grapefruit rind; body the same with unsweetened grapefruit juice and hints of rind. Nice and crisp.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Odd Side. Pours a nice light orange with a sudsy head and aromas of passion fruit and grapefruit. Flavor is more of the above, with a light body that balances things out very nicely. Barkeep said "Simcoe" was the hop and this is a darn good Simcoe IPA. It’s not very heavy and I wish I had been able to get a growler full.
