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...

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
There is a strong hoppy-citrus aroma from the bottle; however, the nose largely disappears after pouring with the exception of a delicate must. Color does well to the description of pale ale, though with a slight buttery-amber shade to it. Pours with little to no head and clarity leaves a little to be desired, but is by no means something to complain about. Taste is flavorful at first with a mouthful of hops and bitterness, but diminishes to a watery, musty ale by the end of the glass. The beer is surprisingly drinkable with a thin, light body and no remarkably unpleasing tastes aside from a mild metallic undertone. Not necessarily indicative of the IPA style, but by no means a bad beer considering it was both smooth and balanced.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden with one finger white head and nice lacing. Smells of citrus, caramel, hops. Tastes well balanced, a touch dry, not a mix of various flavors but instead is rather simple. Nice bitterness and decent aftertaste. Above average.

An old school APA with aromas of grapefruit and honey dominating, though I get a little apricot as well. It’s predominantly bitter hops in the mouth with a strong malt structure. Like getting into a time machine and going back to the early days of US new wave brewing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden with small short lasting head. Hops and grains in tha aroma. The taste is medium bitter and is dominated by grains with some hops in the background, There is something about it I dont quite like so much, something metalic/acid in the taste. I dont know if its old, the bottle is marked Aug 10 15 - 8 months ago....
