3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
9th July 2012
Keg at the Craft. 7.0%. Another catch up from the misses at Sour & Bitter because I was inebriated! Almost clear amber beer, tidy white head. Palate is a little soft with mild carbonation. Slightly grainy malt. Mellow tropical fruit hops - mild mango and a peach. A little orange. The malt turns slightly creamy. Finishes smooth with mellow hop bitterness and aftertaste. Not bad but I was expecting less grain and more hop forward character from a Californian IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour a week ago at FW Invitational and then today at PP Sam Clemente. Pours a clear golden/orange with white head. Aroma is very minimal with some slight hops and and notes of fresh earth. More fresh soil in the taste, like wet clay soil with loads of hops. No sweetness but not dry. Drinkable and nice but there are a lot of better IPAs in Southern California.

Tap at Sour and Bitter. Clear gold, frothy white head. Peppery hops, Simcoe, a hint of onion, a tiny bit off for my taste. Bitter flavor, straightforward WC IPA, simple crisp fresh malt, no sweetness. Palate is smooth light-med carbonation, med body. OK.
