3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours gold with a 11/2 finger fluffy off white head. aroma is fruit loops/fruit punch, hops and malt with a little grain. the fruit punch is mainly pineapple and melon. has a light to medium body with descent lacing and good carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma with some pine and is a little stronger than the aroma. has a dry hop aftertaste and is descent overall. the grain is a little stronger as it warms. it is more of a strong apa in the beginning to middle and then the pine kicks in. also has some orange peel when it warms. for $6.49 a six pack i would buy it again. best grocery store ipa where i live.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice to know there is an IPA I donít like. Too much "pale." Pale color, pale nose, pale flavor (watery), with a sour/bitter sensation that coats the entire mouth. On tap and a busy downtown bar.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Light copper color. Really clear for an IPA. Mild hops in the nose. Flavor is way more APA than IPA. Balanced, but boring. I really wish I hadnít paid five bucks for this, but it was the only thing at the resturant that wasnít BMC.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap - Light copper, small head, if any the bartender pored it off. Light, but strong, hoppy aroma. The beer is see-through and looks watery. Flavor is a pleasant moderate amount of hop, floral, crystal cold, and aromatic. Texture is a little sweet and medium bodied. Not many bubbles are present but the beer does have a moderate carbonation bite.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a bottle. Nice light golden color with a small-medium head. Nose was better than it tasted. A decent drinkable IPA, nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, cold. Light amber with various beige head. Sweet aroma - like wet hops! Consistency very like an average APA with a very strong hop profile. Like a hoppy home-brew. Light alcohol, and thin watery flavor. Over-priced at 9.99 for a 6. A pleasant session beer without a lot to brag about but big hops. Perhaps more malt to fill it out and to balance the hops. Iíll happily drink it if itís offered.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pretty solid IPA, but not my favorite. It had notable smokey flavor and aroma. I prefer a fruitier IPA, but this was definitly a well crafted beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Copper pour with medium tan head. Aroma of sweet hops. Taste of pine and citrus hops with a bitter finish. Gets a slightly tarnished rep but not too shabby.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale gold with nice creamy white head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity and floral. More malty than I would expect with a dash of bitterness, pine, and spice. Lingering sharpness but flavor fades as well. Not bad but could be even better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Iím kind of new to IPAs, which is probably why I rated this higher than most. Reminds me of a flowery Sierra Nevada. Tends to get a little flat toward the bottom of the bottle, but that just might be my hand making it warm and less tasty. A lovely drink for a day of grilling.
