3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours gold crowned by a small white head with some suspended particles evident in the beer. Nose is hoppy. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy. Taste is all hops, but not overly bitter. Hopheads will love this one. Pairs well with crackers and cheese.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours murky copper – brown with tall near rocky tan head. The aroma is a little dusty and cedar spicy like and then some horribly muted pine notes are noticed near the end of the draw. The taste begins with spicy wood notes mixing with grassy resiny pine hop bitterness. Behind the bitter hops are thin rings of malts and blunted pine hop flavor. This IPA is nicely on the bitter side of the hop spectrum.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy light amber with a finger creamy, chunky beige head that has great retention and leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, toast, cereal, floral hops, honey, citrus, toffee, overripe tree fruit, and a hint of planty hops. Flavor is caramel, toffee, toast, planty, citrus, piney and earthy hops, cereal grain, berry and tree fruit. Palate is medium bodied, creamy on entry, moderately carbonated, creamy, syrupy and lightly dry, chalky to the finish. Pretty good, the hop notes are a little more to the earthy, planty side than I typically like, but it has a more substantial feel and flavor profile than typically found in IPA’s at this ABV% level. Could be good or bad on that note, but right now I’d call it good. Looks very nice too.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is subtle floral with malt and hops. Pours a cloudy deep gold with a frothy lacing head. Taste is strong hops. Long strong bright and bitter hoppy finish with a lot of linger. Great beer, but I don’t think I could session it :-)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hops and a lot of yeast in the aroma. The flavor is hoppy up front, followed by a metallic edge. Not really bad but could be better without the metallic edge.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Old Fashioned in Madison, pours a clear amber/orange with a thin white head, the aroma is of old hops and oranges, the flavor has notes of dirty water and what trash water would taste like, (not that I’ve tried that before) thin mouthfeel, just a huge miss for me.
