2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy orange color with white head. Strangely very little aroma. Taste - Mild grapefruit notes, floral caramel malt and a bit herbal. It’s pretty good but not my favorite flavor profile for an IPA.

Had at the MPLS 2012 Autumn Brew Review. The smell was very inviting so was quick to take a sip. A burst of flavor went thru my taste buds. I chugged it and asked for another sample.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit III. Thanks to bnielsen13 for sharing! Pours a clear dark orange appearance wi a nice, fluffy, off white head. Chewy toasty malty, light caramel, juicy grapefruity, a bit spicy bready aroma. Tangy, spicy, grapefruity, toasty, a bit resiny flavor with a slightly dry, bitter finish. A bit goopy. Maybe a touch dated bottle but not bad.
