2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a clear copper with a average white head. Aroma is more of a sweet malt and a herbal hop. Flavor is more of a dryer malt with again a very mild almost minor hop. It was not a sweet malt bomb like I thought it was going to be but in the world of IPA’s this would be way far down the list of ones to try. Really almost no noticeable hops are present.

bottle. Pours golden orange with a decent sized white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is piney hops, light citrus and a hint of malt at the end. Light to medium bodied with a short, piney finish. Not bad. I would definitely have another..

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Golden orange and clear appearance with a small beige head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine, floral notes. toasted grains, light toffee/caramel and light herbs. Similar flavor, moderate to heavy hop bitterness and minimal to light malt sweetness. Medium body with a crisp feel and a lingering, dry finish with a touch of alcohol. Decent, but kinda of hard to drink after a while.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
All the proceeds from this go to charity so the brewers might be good people but they sure do make some garbage beer. This one is perfectly clear orange w/ a small head of fine white bubbles. This claims to be an IPA but isn’t really terribly hoppy, esp. in the nose. I get a bit of caramel and grain and you can’t really tell there’s much of the way of hops in there until you get to the strong, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. I suppose this does provide balance to rather sticky, heavy sweetness but really that’s enough that nothing is going to save this beer. Needless to say, I am not a fan. I recommend you do not buy this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Look: pours burnt gold color. Thick white head that fades quickly. Very clear beer. Lacing fades into the glass as time goes on.
Smell: citrus. Pineapple, orange, sweet citrus. Slight bitterness after the sweetness.
Taste: light citrus. Pepper flavor. Can't taste the alcohol at all. Slight bitterness.
Feel: slightly thicker mouth feel.
Overall: smell us delicious, but taste just doesn't jump out like an IPA should in my opinion. Watch for the abv it will sneak up on you.
