3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can courtesy of queenholly. Dark brown amber color with thin soapy head. Deep amber color, thin soapy head. Flavor is mango, pineapple and pink grapefruit. Caramel is present but is really subdued. Bitterness lingers for a good duration after the sip. Trances of pine resin when warm. Meduim in body with proper amount of carbonation.

A bit darker in color than I expected with a mostly white head. Very hoppy up front, guava, mango, citrus peel, grassy notes on the finish.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is a little grassy, but does not have a lot of hop character to it. Taste is a little bit bitter, but not overly so, and has a strong malt backbone to it. Not a huge fan of this...

Bottle. New penny color. Not much lace. Average IPA nose. Variety of hop flavors. As the bottle states you taste pine and grapefruit. Solid.

I like. Hazy orange/amber pour with white head. Arona is hoppy lemon. Taste is a little bitter orange peel and hops. Sidenote. Had a little left with desert. Avtually goes well with whipped cream.

Another small brewery starting to distribute! How awesome is that?! Decent aroma, nice copper color but lacks a head or lacing I would like to see in an IPA. Taste is nothing to brag about....seems like a cookie cutter IPA. Nice moth feel, leaves a lot of bitter in the end. Overall, not a bad beer. I wouldn’t run out to buy it buy I enjoy it. I hope the other beers come to my local shop. I would like to try the others!

This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent orange colored body and a poor lacing. The aroma was hoppy. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Decent IPA for a small brewery... nothing too special, but I would have it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Relatively small sample, and subsequently short rating - poured orangey/amber - decent head. Aroma is combination of citrus and piney hops - moderate strength. Flavor was generally unremarkable, but not offensive in the least - easy to drink, but can do much better in the IPA field in most locations...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber color out of the tap with a sticky off white head. Nose of floral hops and fruit. This is a fruity IPA with apple sauce, orange juice and some grapefruit rind and soap. Long sweet tart and orange zest finish. Odd IPA.
