2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Finally found a bottle that isnít INFECTED. Itís really hard to "buy local" when you get burned by brewers allowing obviously infected beers on shelves.
Pours dark brown with medium head. Slight haze. Nose has a lot of bready notes, toffee, and black tea. Palate offers plenty oif malt, more bread and black tea, and a minor hop bitterness at the end. Strikes me more as a modern pale than an IPA.

bottle. Poured slightly hazy, orange-amber with a creamy off-white head. Citrus hop aroma. Medium body, lower carbonation with a citric acid mouthfeel at the end. Has a light bready malt flavour that leads to herbal hops with a sour citrus note.

Good beer. Citrusy and hoppy but with enough sweetness for balance. Not overpowering. I prefer this to some of the crazy hop beers popular nowadays.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this at the ball games for a ridiculous price. Finally got a sixxer of 12 oz bottles. So, here goes. Pours a honey with slight copper, translucent with a tad of head. Nose is muted hops. taste is almost ígushyí (best way I can describe) with particularly muted hops. A bit sweet and watery finish. In critical retrospect, the exorbitant price was not worth it. Still better than macros.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of light fruit, citrus, and light florals. It pours a transparent amber with an orange tinted soapy off-white head that has great retention. There is a lot of clumpy soapy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with fruit and light caramel. The finish has light grapefruit, lemon grass, and herbal hops. Itís light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, itís okay hedonistically, but not hoppy enough for an IPA.

I really enjoy this IPA. Unsure of the low ratings. Good look. Good taste. Very enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in Phoenix.
My Arizona tick -- strange this state was so long in coming. Pours orange-amber with a white head with unattractive floaters of various sizes clumping together and drifting around the glass. Nose of citrus and pine hops, iced tea. Flavor follows, not so aggressively hopped, sweet orange marmalade on burnt toast. An unpleasant off flavor is quite strong; infection issues or just really not a good beer? Either way, not so awful that I didnít drink a second one given the absence of any other options.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at a bar in downtown Phoenix. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Notes of toast, caramel, light citrus fruits, a hint of pine, grass, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Forgettable.

Thanks to a friend for a sample. I thought maybe it was a bad batch because it wasnít very hoppy. Kind of a sweet and fruity with very little bitterness. When I see others have mentioned the same thing I guess it wasnít just me. Below average IPA.

Straight forward IPA. Mild bitterness. Very drinkable especially on a hot day. Would pick up a six pack if I saw it.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is quite grassy, with some almost earthiness to it. Taste is a bit odd to me - bitter up front, but then has a sweet finish, almost passing through a fruit flavor. Odd IPA, and Iím not sure Iím a huge fan.
