2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very hazy amber with a large head. Nose is earthy/spicy hops and some yeasty phenols. Tastes like you would expect...some spicy hops...ginger, cardomom, pineapple, pine. Carbonation is moderate/high and body is medium/full. Decent brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle from Julio’s Liquors. Served at cellar temp. Amber color with lots of floating yeast and particles floating around the glass. Sizable, white fluffy, lasting head. Decent lace. Sweet malt and citrus hop nose. Very straight forward brew. Balanced malt and hops. Has more of a hoppy APA feel to me, rather than IPA. Mild lingering hop finish. But honestly, people have rated this really harsh. It’s not bad, just standard.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy light amber with a white head. Not one of the better IPAs out there but it is true to the style and certainly drinkable enough. Hop aroma and taste with slight citrus and pine plus a bit of an off taste I can’t quite pin down.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A light honey-colored brew with some fine yeasty cloudiness. Pleasant light-malt and hop spice aromas. Flavor is very nice. Good light sweet malty start with a good hop presence. somewhat bready, but not too sticky. Some pine, some floral. Mostly spice. Lingering breadiness. Not bad overall.

draft - Pours hazy orange with a long lasting off-white head. It has a citrus hop aroma and a corresponding flavor with nice grapefruit notes. There’s also a good malt backing and this medium bodied brew finishes with the expected lingering bitterness. It’s quite good. I don’t really understand the low ratings.

Pour is a cloudy orange with a small off white head, quickly dissipating. Nose is of hops and little funk, not the most pleasing smell. Taste is of hops, nothing distinct or particularly good, though better than the nose.

Pours a straw yellow color with a tall white head. Pine aroma with some citrus. Mild flavor with some citrus and pine. A very mild hop ending. Okay but not exceptional.

Part of a tasting at the new brewery. It was pretty fresh and certainly had some hoppiness to it. Wasn’t particularly thrilling, but it tasted fine. It was a bit sweeter than most other IPAs I’ve had.
