3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery in San Marcos, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear amber with a small off-white head that fades slowly to a thin remnant and leaves no lace. On the nose there is a big note of resin, along with fruit, caramel and flowers. The flavour is medium-bitter with resin, pine, flowers and a subtle candy sweetness. The finish is medium bitter with flowers and a subtle fruity sweetness. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a decent IPA with a nice degree of balance. 2013-03-22

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is a slightly cloudy orange with a finger of white head. Opens with sweet citrus fruitiness and a decent amount of pine. Some mild herbs, a bit of bread, and mild caramel. There’s a light grass note up front to the flavor, but it’s quickly overtaken by lots of tangerine and grapefruit. Some hints of pineapple, moderate pine, and a slight caramel malt sweetness.

Candy sweetness up front. Long bitterness in the finish. This is a shitty assed IPA.
