3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a copper color with a thin off-white head. Smells a little floral, with light whiffs of citrusy hops, and quite a bit of caramel malt. The flavor shows toasted grains and sweet caramel malt initially. Medium-bodied; a little more heft to the malt base than I’d like. Mid palate the sticky resinous and orange hops kick in, that lead to a lengthy dry, and bitter finish. Some lingering malt. Decent IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can. Pours a cloudy pale orange color with s 2 finger foamy head that fades slowly, leaves nice lacing. Somewhat malty aroma for an IPA but some grassy and floral hops are present too. Moderately sweet taste with a light bitterness. Caramel malt mixed with floral hops. Mouthfeel is a little foamy, medium body. Overall, a decent IPA but certainly nothing great. Just not enough fresh hops or bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some spotty lacing on the glass as well. Aromas of big pine, grapefruit, orange, floral, caramel, bread, and herbal spiciness. Some fairly nice and well balanced aromas. Taste of big grapefruit, orange, caramel, pine, bread, floral, and herbal spiciness. Decent amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel, and spiciness on the finish for a bit. Nice malt and hop balance make this very smooth to drink. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden with hardly any warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very enjoyable, balanced, and drinkable IPA offering.

On tap at the brewpub...very average IPA - not much to choose from at Rochester Mills, so this stood out among a group of "lightish" offerings.
