3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange pour with an aroma of citrus and some sweetness. Taste is a bit of a letdown. Some ok bitter but the palate is thin, almost pale ale like. If it didn’t say IPA I would swear it was an APA.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a orange color with a small white head and floaties. It has a very nice citrus and grapefruit aroma. It tastes of pine, grapefruit and resin with a bitter aftertaste. The body is a bit thin and the floaties are gross but other than that this is a pretty good beer. I’ll try to rate this again with a fresher batch at some point.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Burnt orange colored beer with an off-white head. Aromas of pine, and citrus. Tastes of pine needles, spruce, orange peel, and some caramel malt. Finishes crisp, refreshing, and on very nice citrus peel flavors. Hops are balanced nicely by the malts. Solid, and enjoyable beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light amber with a decent white head. Aroma is some grapefruit with a slight hint of pine resin. Flavor is mildly hoppy up front with a strong grapefruit finish. Body is a little watery, and it could use a slight bit more malt. Overall solid medium to light intensity IPA, good in the summer with a little spicy food.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very cloudy, lots of sediment. A good taste, but not very hoppy. I’d drink it again, but it’s not something I’ll be craving.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared by turdferguson. Murky amber orange pour, floaties (bottom of bottle). One finger of off white head. Nose is resin heavy, lots of oily hop notes, light oxidation with bready notes and a citric quality. Lightly zesty quality to the flavor, otherwise the hop character is very resinous. Piney with a slightly papery quality. Not bad, needs some work but a great start.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. 200th IPA rating. Cloudy orange pour, thick white head. Nose hoppy-herbal and grassy, light pine and citrus, light toffee malts. Flavor is a little more on the malty side, hops are still there but not as vibrant as the nose. Bitter finish, but not much hop flavor going on here. Drinkable, but forgettable.
