3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly cloudy orange/amber pour, thin off white head. Nose is hops & malt. Bitter. Middle is sweet, slightly creamy malt and soft fruit. Finish is somewhat dry and bitter. Not an IPA to my taste, but an OK beer.

Serving: from tap at Tolbert’s Restaurant.

Taste: lightly sweet, floral orange initial flavor and moderately bitter finish with average duration.
Palate: medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: great. Interesting, sweet flavor at the front and hoppy bitter finish. Thick, creamy palate. I would like to drink this again.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A very average style IPA. Pours a straw yellow color with white head. Not a whole lot on the aroma, but some citrus and pine. Palate actually has more malt than hop notes. Not terrible, but not something to go out of the way for.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ DFW. Deep amber colour with a thin head. The aroma tells me this is old school IPA, without a prominent hop signature. Moderate bitterness, some biscuity, caramelly malts, medium body, sweetish finish and no real brightness at any point. Not a bad beer, but a little dated.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark copper color with a thick tan foamy head. Interesting aroma of dried fruit and spicy herbs. Kind of a clean fruity flavor reminiscent of a belgian ale. Toasty malt, a herbal Jagermiester flavor note as wel. Overall, interasting, but i am not sure if its an IPA...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Bottle] Clear and light brown in color. Not much foam on top. Low carbonation levels. Mild hoppy aroma is overshadowed by caramel malts. Earthy hops in the taste. Low to moderate bitterness, but not much else happening here. Light in body. Taste reminds me of an ESB in ways. Tasting notes from 2012.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Little bit hazy amber, off-white head. Aroma has some hops, but not very strong. Smooth and a little thin. Alright, but there are other IPAs I prefer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from World Market - Houston Galleria, 10/8/13
Aroma: The nose is on the dull side with some grainy malts and some mild earthy hops
Appearance: It pours a clearish caramel-orange color with a beige head and plus lace
Flavor: The flavor is muted and a little buttery, it does not have enough bitterness for the style
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a soft carbonation, and a dryish finish
This beer doesn’t taste like it has German influence or IPA influence. It isn’t a terrible beer or anything, but honestly, this one feels mostly like a miss to me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a clear golden orange with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of grass and light pine with a hint of resin and a pretty strong grain backbone. Flavor has lots of grass and grain with just a bit of pine coming through in the finish.
