3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours chill hazy orangy copper with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is resiny hops, caramel malt, with some spruce and tropical fruit. Tastes resiny, piney, hoppy, with mid-palate malt, fruit, tamgerine, and peppery notes. Medium palate heft and complexity level. This one is enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Moderate pine hop aroma, a bit funky or something. Gold with 2-cm. rocky head. Fairly balanced initial, mid palate moves toward the malt, and final fades away quickly. Medium body. Overall maybe a bit too sweet, but okay.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Sweet Grass Dairy. Very clear copper with almost no head. Nose is only sweet caramel malts, no hint of hops whatsoever. Bland, boring, sweet caramel malt with maybe a slight touch of pine in the end. This is not a IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Total Wine. Pours a dull clear amber. Malty caramel body with a faint hop profile. The hops that are there give it an orange touch in the aroma and a grassy herbal finish. Slightly bitter on the back end of the sip.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Perfectly clear amber. Head laces nicely. Very fruity IPA. Most of that come from the hops, but this is also a very malty version of the still. Strong, but not overwhelming bitterness and hop heat in the finish.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
From the bottle poured a golden brew with a whitel head. Aromas and flavors of malt and a stron hop bite. Medium bodied but just doesn’t bring it off.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Honey color with dissipating head. Smells biscuity and a little floral. Taste is kind of floral too. A bit peppery on the pre-finish with the finish going sweet.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Too heavy, too sweet. I mean, not terrible, i guess, but not what I look for in an IPA. Lots of caramel and toffee, some earthy hops in the finish. Eh...
