3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells very hoppy but I’ve tasted many beers hoppier than this. Overall though, not a bad IPA. Nice amber color to it. Also, it has a bit of an alcohol kick at the end of each mouthful, which is odd for a 5%er.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours copper with a thin hite head. You can smell a faint hint of citrus and grass and taste the traces of hops, but this one is watery and bland.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazt dark straw with a lot of carbonation and tiny floaties. Aroma of resiny hops, bready malt, and some cobwebby esters. The taste was hoppy, with some citrus and bready malt. Medium palate that gets hoppier as it warms. Lacking in balance and complexity.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I don’t know what to make of this beer. The ingredients seem to clash and balance doesn’t seem to form in the taste or the aroma. The bitterness I normally associate with an IPA is contradicted by a relatively harmless palatte which only seeps out some grassy hops in a sea of water. There is some carbonation present so the mouthfeel is a plus but taste loses and smoothness wins.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
After the BW I think I was expecting a little much from this. Thin, low carbonation, resiny and lemony hops, little malt backing, no complexity, just a mess and hard to finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appears a light gold with a small white cap and little lacing.
Smell is florally and soapy with light malt in the background.
Taste is light and soapy with nothing fantastic jumping out.
Mouthfeel is light, fizzy, and weak.
Drinkability...nothing special going on this this one.

Thanks to weeare138. Pours a slightly cloudy golden. Aroma of floral hops, some lemon and dishsoap. Thin feel that is a bit woody. The flavor is less than the aroma.

Bottle courtesy of weeare138. Poured a medium golden color with a smaller sized white head (very weak looking). Aromas of flowers, soapy and citrus. Tastes of pretty much the same. Thinner body. I wasn’t too crazy about this one.
