3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Corner Stable, Columbia: pours a clear deep copper golden with a clingy-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted caramel malty nose with lots of fresh citrusy hops. Starts with good body and fine carbonation revealing sweet light caramel malt well-balanced with assertive grapefruity hop flavor and bitterness before a drier crisp bittersweet finish. True to style and enjoyable.

Poured from a bottle it is a clear golden Colorado with a white head. The aroma is citrus and the taste is a light citrus flavor that gets stronger as it resonates on the palate

Mmm, great citrus hop aroma brings you in. The pour is soft amber w/ a thin white head that leaves spotty lacing. The taste is loaded w/ hops but finishes clean. Itís remarkably smooth on the palate & quite drinkable! An exceptional IPA!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle split with Anndiesel. Filtered orange-tan, some chill haze. Thin, respectable head. Malty, think, resinous aroma..kind of old school. Approaching IIPA in some respects, very big malt tones, kind of full and resinous on the palate. Comes across a little brutal and one-dimensional. Rindy citrus hop character. Tolerable, but not one Iíd revisit.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a copper with a large white head. Aroma is sweet malts but has plenty of hops. Flavor is more of a malt aspect than hoppy. Hops are here but that sweet malt takes over everything. Finish is more sweet malt and maybe even some dark fruit. Ok beer. Nothing really bad just not as hoppy as would have liked.
