3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured a golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma was some light hops, with a touch of light smoke - not a whole lot on the nose, nice malt character though. Flavor is a bit more noticable, the smoke comes out a bit like a light smoky meat, with some sweet malts and a touch of earthy hops in here.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Y-not, Chesapeake, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Bright aroma of tangerine, pineapple, and pine. The flavor contains the citrusy hops expected from the aroma but is quickly undercut by peat, smoke, and toffee. Some bitterness from the hops lingers. Interesting and better than you would have expected a smoked IPA to be.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured hazy, amber with a moderate head. Aroma of pungent hops with some char and smoke. Nice drinking IPA bitterness and citrus and earthiness along with a good smoked character. Complex yet balanced on not too heavy leaning in either direction. Lingering smokiness in the finish.

Draft - pours cloudy gold with white head. Smoked IPA yup. Great idea and well made. Will look for more smoked IPAs.

If you can’t handle smokes, this isn’t going to be a terrible pleasant one. I’m not exactly a dire hard for the char, but I was excited to try this one with the blended flavors. I was overall quite impressed/intrigued, although the aroma wasn’t as great. Pretty smoky and not much of the fruity undertones. Pour was golden, minimal head.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @The Pony Bar (1st Ave)
Hazy orange color, small white head. Fruity, mango aroma, also wet wood and barnyard. Medium-bodied. Fruity hoppyness, then wet wood and smokeyness mixed. Touch of citrus in the finish. Decent expremiment. Smokeyness is not so offensive.

Draft. I've had this before but never got around to rating it. Wish I had because I wouldn't have gotten it again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Pour House. Pours a cloudy orange amber color with a foamy white head. Aroma is roasted notes, smoke, orange peel and some high hoppy notes. Flavor is back end smoky, citrus, hoppy and dry bitter. An odd mix I would say.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Yard House Houston. It pours a hazy orange colored body and a small, dense off-white head leaving curtains. There’s a faint ham like smoke in the aroma , but mostly it’s green pine cones and tropical fruits. The flavor has a fine bitterness to complement the tropical fruits and pine cones. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting fruity and bitter finish. Overall, sure a decent one, but a tad too sweet I think, and lacking depth. 131111

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange pour with a nice yellowish off white head and nice lacing. Aroma is strong sweet citrus with hint of smoke. Taste is sticky citrus, caramel, a little smoke, and a hint of alcohol. Medium body. Interesting beer, citrusy notes remain prominent with the smoke in the background.
