3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle from Guntown. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a medium white head. A decent orange and citrus nose. The flavor is decent; biscuit, lemon, some zest. Lots of crystal. Smooth.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber-copper body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is just lightly hoppy with a little crystal malt below. Doesn’t smell especially inviting, as far as an IPA goes, but there’s nothing wrong with it. The flavor is pretty lacking in the hops department, especially for being touted as "aggressively" hopped. There’s a little too much dark crystal malt in here for my tastes, leaving a little too much sweetness lingering on the finish. Not really up my alley as far as the style goes. Medium bodied, a little clingy, moderate fizzy carbonation. Not for me, but I’d like to try it again directly from the source though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Barley’s and Hop’s, Bethel Park, PA on 02/11/12. Poured a hazy copper body with a smallish beige head. There was a subtle and slightly funky aroma of light caramel maltiness, a little grapefruit, some citrus rinds, lemon, butter, and wet cardboard. Went down thin to medium-bodied. First and foremost, this beer tasted like it was made with dirty river water. There was an undeniable funkiness all the way through. Some caramel and a light breadiness were both present upfront taste-wise. A little more buttered bread in the middle. The finish was kinda grassy and herbal with a touch of grapefruit and some sour lemon juice. This was just not good.

Had it from the bottle at a party. Noting here to rave about and I wish I could say more in praise of this one but I’d be forcing myself to do so. Just an average brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy amber orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malt and floral hops. Flavor features more hoppy bitterness and bready malts. Good IPA, although it’s more like a pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel colored with an off white cover. Aroma is some toasted malt, herbal hops. Taste is pretty much the same, nothing too mind-blowing but it was solid enough that I had a second.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours slightly orange with a thin white head. Not a lot of aroma. The taste is full of grapefruit but not much else. Finishes clean. I’ve had this beer like 40 times before. I’m kind of getting bored with this style.
