3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Festival tap: Strong citrus nose from a bright amber beer. Body is thin, not much malt to balance, bitter and tangy finish.

Hazy pale orange w/fine head. Hoppey with peach, and a bitter finish. Flowery nose w/ some malt and a dry grapefruit note throughout. Not bad kinda like my home town Summit pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
this struck me as a very average IPA. slightly stronger and bitterer than their Tornado Pale Ale, but definitely not a bad beer. i’ll drink it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Typical IPA. Quite a bitter one at that. It definitely has that grapefruit rind flavor to it. Very nice and citric. Lots of hops. Light brown and like I said quite typical.
