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...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle. Level of aggressiveness is low with pine, citrus, and slight hints of herbal and earthy dankiness. Light golden and copper hue with thin white head that leaves little lacing. Biscuit maltiness with a mild sweet quality that makes it very easy to drink. Sometimes we forget the simpler things in west coast comparison to slam the palate. Nothing wrong with that.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy golden color with white head. Aroma has some fruity, tropical hops and some butter biscuits. Taste is balanced, you get the hops and also the malts. Aftertaste gets quite bitter. Quite watery for 6.2% abv but overall it’s a decent IPA.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Not a lot to choose from for the craft guy, so I had to try this one. Poured a clear dark yellow with small white head. Aroma was very faint to me, but it was an open top glass, so that could add to it. Light citrus and herbal notes on the nose. Flavor was decent with citrus, mainly lemon, herbal, some grass notes. Body was light, texture was thin, carbonation was average. Finish was quick and smooth. Ok, but nothing I’d seek out.
