3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Pours a clear light copper body with a small fizzy white head that left a bit of lace. The nose is bright citrusy hops with a light caramel malt base. The flavor has a nice balance between the citrusy hop flavor and the moderate bitterness level. A slight bit of caramel sweetness at it’s base. Lighter bodied for the style with fine fizzy carbonation. A pretty basic IPA, not very overwhelming on the bitterness making it fairly easy drinking.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown/orange and hazy body with a white head. Aroma is very light but otherwise typical to IPAs, hops mostly. Taste is quite pleasant as the bitterness is not too much. Mouthfeel is light and soft. It’s quite simple IPA but not bad by any means.

Not as many hops as you might see in some other West Coast style IPA’s. It is enjoyable. I have had better west coast IPA’s but I think this is pretty decent.
