3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gluten Free. Light Amber pour, persistent fizzy head. Light malt nose. Pronounced bitterness, a bit of honey. A little thin for an IPA but nice for gluten free.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a gentle hazy amber color with a quarter finger of white foaminess of a head. Once the head died, there was some light lacing sliding into the beer.
The smell had a grainy to grassy light lemon to pine coming to surface.
The taste was mainly the same thing.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light and didnít have the harshness I was expecting for an AIPA. The carbonation seemed to be too subdued for the style and was just okay to me.
Overall, weird AIPA, not sure where I got the grainy sort of thing in the smell and the taste. I prefer their pale ale before this.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle purchased at Trader Joes. hop. Hazy orange / amber color with thin head in the pint glass. Aroma is malt heavy with grain and a light note of pine.
No surprise here. Toasted grain, light grapefruit through the center with a touch of pine in the backend. Pine lingers for a short time and vanishes. Lots of sweetness with weak bitterness. Body is the light side of medium. Overall not bad for the low price I would prefer the pale ale over this if I needed to be gluten free.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of starchy biscuits and grapefruit rind. Hazy yellow-orange. Rather bitter overall, some almost salty malt sweetness. Itís crisp and seems dryer than it really is. Very similar to the so called East Coast paradigm that is a somewhat older IPA style, so it wonít knock you down.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Somewhat hazy golden brew that smells of grapefruit that has maybe gone rotten. There is something off about the aroma to me. The flavor is that of grapefruit and pine but there is a distinct taste that is not right. Never have eaten mold before but have smelled it and odd taste makes me think of that mold. Seeing others rate this one as being a decent IPA but from the six pack I got it is not good at all. Think this one will be going down the sink.
** Rating update - looked for a date on the bottle, has Jun 25 13 on it. So if that is a born date then this beer is almost a year old and if it is a best before date then this beer is way too old to be drank. So I am thinking age has taken its toll on this six pack and my review may not be fair for it. Will check dates if I see it in the store again and maybe try a fresher batch to re-review it.
