2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft sample at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival 2012. Pours a golden-amber color with a finger of off-white head. Faint aroma of grassy hops, pale and caramel malts, and cereal. Flavor is mostly the same with a little more spice and bitterness. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Not much going on in this IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Repeal. Gold and copper. Aromas and flavors of floral european hops and yeast. Balance could use more malt but they are scarce. That makes for a thin offering.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber with a frothy off-white head and nice lacing. Mild aroma of bready malt, grass and some caramel. The taste is mostly pale malts with a moderate spicy bitterness. Medium bodied and slightly dry. It seems like more of an unusually bitter bitter than an IPA to me. I guess in that regard, it would fit better under English Pale Ale here...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - deep gold, some head, lacing. Not exactly a hop bomb here. Seems too malty for an IPA. I guess that’s where the German style comes in. Medium body and a somewhat dry finish but forgettable for the most part.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a beautiful golden color with a nice thick head. The flavor is more reminscent of a traditional english IPA than an american one. Nice subtle hop flavors.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pretty gold color with a 2 finger head and good lace. Weird aroma of creamed corn and floral hops. Flavor is a bit flat, bready malt with slightly astringent hoppiness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. An amber color and a white foamy head with lots of lacing. There’s a faint aroma of hops with a bit of citrus. The flavor is very hop-forward with a citrusy hop flavor lasting all through the flavor with a long aftertaste, but not much else going on. An easy to drink IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle courtesy of blankboy. Clear amber, nice and bubbly, with a large diminishing frothy-fizzy off-white head. I get virtually no aroma - weird!! Taste - leafy, oddly roasty, bitter - quite bitter - but the only character I get is scorched grass ... a bit of alcohol too. Average body, astringent, undercarbonated, a bit harsh in the finish. Not really digging it.
