2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear medium yellow with a slight orange hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that lasted for a good while leaving behind a thick foamy cap which produced some fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was mild to say the least of a mild hay like malt, an herbal hop and a light moldy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and a bit of citrus.
The taste was mildly sweet and acidic with a note of caramel at first and then became mildly hoppy with notes of toffee and citrus at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration, with a hoppy citrus taste left behind to linger for just a little while longer.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry, watery texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall an average tasting IPA, a bit hoppy but nothing to overbearing...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a bottle at McCormick and Schmick’s on Wacker Drive, Chicago. Golden colour and strong white head. Good citrus hop aromas, and a taste balanced between biscuity malts and mildly grapefruity hops. The taste is a little bland, with a slightly discordant dry bitterness. I would like a stronger hop presence in the taste here, but not a bad beer.

2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Call it a pale ale and i’ll give you half a point more. Malty not much hops. Average beer with a light hop bill. Nice lasting head. Malty but not sweet. This isn’t as bad as you would think by rating. But for an ipa pretty horrible with light aroma and light hop.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a hazy bright orange colour with small white head and lots of floaties. Aroma is fruity with citric and floral hops as well as biscuity and caramel maltiness. Flavour has some nice tropical fruity and floral hoppiness and a solid biscuity malt presence as well as a little sweetish caramel. Carbonation relatively gentle. Goes down easy but has a little character.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium thick head, very smooth with a big fruity aroma and mild hoppy flavours with a lingering bitterness, not as hoppy as I’d expected for an IPA, must be the dry hopping. Good stuff.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Subtle hop aroma, absolutely no head, no lacing. Didn’t care much for the taste. Many better options available, wouldn’t suggest.
