3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bright unclear orange with no head. Aroma is stale citrus hops, taste is subdued citrus hops, strong malt backbone didnt do it for me drinkable but lacking a strong hop presence.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy brass with light beige to off-white head. Fresh, yeasty smell features a pine scent. Weaker smell than I am used to in the IPA style. Light, quite dry, piney flavor. Herbal taste features a potpourri element. Citrus and apricot. Gets more complex upon multiple sips. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Seems more like an American Pale Ale or perhaps a Session IPA than a typical IPA.
