2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had this at the brewery. Again its a decent beer, just not my favorite style. Kind of watery and maybe a tad too much carbonation. Wouldnt drink it again usually.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear amber with a thin white head that has decent retention. Thin, spotty lacing. Mellow aroma of hops and spice. Light-bodied with a mildly floral hops character. Light spices and malt are present too. The finish is not very bitter and it is on the dry side. Passable IPA that doesn’t bother much being interesting.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Bottle. Sweet orange and hops aroma. Yellow amber color with small head. Blended lightly sweet orange and moderate hops. Finish could be stronger. This was my first IPA - sometime back in 95 - obviously much more impressive with an immature palate.
