3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle with no date on the bottle, so Iím not sure how old this is. Picked it up on a recent trip to the ísconsin. Poured into a pint glass.
Pours a clear pale orange with a moderately thick white head on top. Big citrusy nose that is inviting me to partake. Orange, lemon, floral tones - nice refreshing nose. The mouth is crisp, yet creamy. A little sharp, but smooth on the back end. Nice big citrus flavors greet me with sweet tangerine, orange rind, lemon zest. Bitterness is moderate and accessible. This is a great IPA for novices and geeks alike. I wasnít expecting a lot, but this surprised me. I would grab this again for sure.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow. Grassy nose, astringent front to the flavor, immediately not pleasing or balanced. Long bitter finish. Not to my liking. (at Ale Jail Anniversary Party 2014)

Hazy orange amber color with a thick, bright white head. Aroma is reminiscent of candied grapefruit and sourdough. Flavor is crisp citrus bitterness with a little bit of malt at the end. Full bodied and creamy on the palate

Draught at Toppling Goliath. IPA/Double in malt alcohol aroma. Low hop aroma and taste. Decent.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared by Eric. Aroma is bitter grass, some citrus, and caramel malt. Pours light amber with a small white head. Taste is bitter grass, some garden weeds, and a stale biscuit malt. Mouthfeel was bitter and dry despite all the malt taste. All in all, this had the makings of an inbalanced and old IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Johnís Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Hazy golden amber color, full 1" white head that stays around, short streaks of lace. Taste is edgy malt that adds strong floral hops in the palate - hops extend to a lingering finish. Very dry, very thirst quenching, very good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Woodmans in the Falls. No bottle date. Pours an orangey copper with a white head and a ton of floaties. Crud! Was a bit concerned about age, and was likely right. Aroma has a nice blend of fresh fruit, citrus and pine, led well by the fruit. Taste is of either dead hops or a real muddle of weak pine, some grapefruit and some pineapple. Little malt presence in this one. Light to medium bodied. Finishes fruity sweet and citrusy bitter, in a solid mix. This one was all over the place. Hoping just old, because it could be pretty good if so. Otherwise strange that the nose and finish would be so solid and the rest just blah. 13.4

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy pale yellow with white head. Good hop aroma and flavor, but a little on the bitter side for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a hazy yellow with a medium sized white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is a touch sweet & a little faint but decidedly hop forward, grassy & weedy like mowing through an overgrown patch. Itís got some nice citrus fruitiness as well.
The flavor is nice enough, pushing the envelope as far as enjoyable bitterness but staying within the threshold for sure. Itís got a nice grassy & fruit forward happiness. The beer does have a touch more sweetness than I would like but again that aspect is pushing the envelope without really going outside of what I find enjoyable in an IPA.
Enjoyable enough thatís for sure.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazed orange, hop haze,yeast haze. Some light frothy head. Strong citrus grassy aroma. Seems a lot like some noble hops alot character like a grassy skunky pilsner. Full mouth foamy feel, lot of toasted pale malts with some sweetness. Citrus tart. Pretty dry toasty finish. Strong citrus grassy hops and bitter/tartness. Probably too much citrus/grassy for my kind of ipa I go for.
