bottle. decent IPA. Plenty of hops with nice citrus tones. Suprised me a little. It certainly doesn’t compare to dogfish IPA’s and other top IPA’s but enjoyable no doubt

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice, dark, golden amber with a decent off-white head. Not quite as dark as many IPA’s I’ve had. Grassy, cirtusy lemon smell. Nice clean hoppy taste with a crisp citrusy finish. One of the top 5 IPA’s I’ve had. Very good brew.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sorry to say this beer was horrible. From all other raters it looks like I am off the mark but this is one of the few beers I could not finish. I was even at an event where it was FREE but I passed after the first one. Only thing I can think is I got a bad one but I was not going to try another.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
<i>Draught at the Yardhouse, Las Vegas</i>
Hazy blond color. There is some hop aroma. Medium-light body, with a dryish mouthfeel, some caramel flavor and some hop; at first the hop has some qualities (resins...), but they get lost on the way. Golden Ale style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Beer pours medium golden color with a totally retained off white colored head. Aroma is lightly, floral and spicy hoppy. Flavor is sweet, then followed by citrus hoppiness, and a bit of graininess. Not special at all for an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with a thin white head and plenty of bubbles. Sweet malt aroma with some fruity hoppiness. Mild for an IPA. Flavor is clean and crisp. Citrusy hops, slight yeasty breadiness, smooth bitter finish. Light bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. Very refreshing and drinkable, definately NOT a hop monster like many other IPAs.
