2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
on tap at Fatty’s - This is a confusing beer, and my review is based on it’s style (IPA). Dark amber pour with a small to medium white head. Aroma is mild - some malty sweetness. Flavor is mellow and smooth, slightly sweet and finishes with a lingering, albeit mild, hop bitterness. I think it would have scored a lot higher if it had been marketed as an Amber Ale though. When I see IPA, I know what I want - and this is not it. However, that’s not to say it’s a mediocre beer. Under certain circumstances I could definitely drink one of these. I can’t help but wonder if it hurts their sales calling it an IPA instead of an Amber. I can see that someone who decidedly doesn’t like IPAs or bitter beers might avoid this outright, but if it was labeled as an Amber they might try it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle, deep ruby amber color with almost no head. Aroma is almost all honey. Taste is very sweet with light bittering. Long finish with alternating sweet/bitter - interesting. Full bodied with oily texture. Almost no carbonation, but I don’t think it needs it. Not what I’d usually go for, but I’m impressed.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Hazy amber body with lots of floaties enough to bring it down to a 2 in appearance. Steady, creamy off-white head. Doesn’t smell that appealing, kind of a 90s brewpub APA thing going, earthy. The concept is cool, but the end result is not so impressive. The hops are more dominating than the honey, which plays second fiddle here.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma floral, spruce, citrus,
Appearance brown, red, hazy, cloudy, frothy, tan foam, white foam,
Taste light sweetness, lightly bitter,
Palate light body, lively,
Overall not a great I.P.A. but I would suggest this beer to a friend that is easing into I.P.A.s because it is not overly hoppy

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled. Pours hazy amber with thin head. Overall drinkable beer, the honey is subdued, but so is the IPA taste.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy brown with large yeast particles in suspension. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is sweet up front with a medium mouthfeel, and noticeable earthy hop taste tailing into maltiness and ending with a slightly rough astringency and little bitterness. Very odd IPA as hops are a small part of the show.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottled - nice sweet aroma. Great reddish amber color. Major head on pour. Taste seemed a bit off - not sweet at all. Old bottle maybe?

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle into an ale glass. Pour is a dark amber with a lace head. Aroma is on the weak side. Taste is a very bitter pull, not a smoothly built beer. Finish is harsh, not what I would have looked for in an ipa. But better then most mass made swill.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle from a trade with jdb288. This is quite hazy and dark brown. Cool looking. A big darker beige head has good retention. I smell honey and clover with rich malts. No hops on the nose. The hops are tasted and they are classic west coast hops with a nice grapefruit profile. There is a bit of herbal and pine but the hops are generally citrus. This has a little something different and is a tasty IPA.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Pretty good ipa. The slight honey sweet slowly peeks out. You can smell it as well. Hops are light. Not overly dimensional. Tap
