3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Thirsty Monk Biltmore Park. Sort of disappointing. Was expecting more based on description and hop overload that went into this one. Pours dark golden, somewhat hazy. All the IPA flavors I would expect are there- citrus, pine and tropical notes but balance is off. Too much earthiness (not the good kind) and vegetal notes. Maybe weird notes from different malts? Somewhat muddled. Appropriately bitter finish. So close to being really, really good but not quite there. Underachiever.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Quest, Greenville, SC.
Hazy brown dark golden colour with a tiny white head.
The aroma is a bit strange with vegetables, hoppy bitterness, mild yeast and malt. The flavour is yeast, dark resiny hoppy bitterness and malt. A bit messy and unbalanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold, white lacing. Wet earth on the nose and strong earthy hop flavors on a full-bodied palate. Spot on for a west coast IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold pour with off white head and lace. Aroma is dominated by citrus hops and some caramel malt undertones. Sweet caramel malt with a touch of fruity esters and a good citrus bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Draft. Pours amber with decent white creamy head. Aroma is pine/spruce, bread dough, lemon, tangerine. Taste is light/med body with some lingering hop bitterness. Malt variety adds a nice complexity. Overall, decent.

A decent IPA from a local brewery. Nothing really stood out to make this beer memorable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden brown on tap with thin white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is big on the piney west coast hops, earthy and floral. Taste follows, medium bitterness, just barely a hint of pale malt. Solid, but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From tap at brewery. A semi clear yellow color with thin head. Aroma was light but had piney hops. Taste was thin with piney hops and light malt. Easy drinking but not an IPA in my book.
