2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very hazy amber. Woody, lightly citrusy hop nose with hints of caramel. Fairly fizzy, but with woody notes. There’s a little grainy, earthy maltiness and a hint of mushrooms. Somewhat muddled overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
muddy orange, big frothy off white head that settles into dense cream, lots of drippy lace, light floral hop aroma, big bitter hop flavor with an almost astrengent bitterness, only a hint of sweetness falls short of offering any balance, the bitterness only gets more astrengent as it warms, a real tongue scraper
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 10/20

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enormous white head and lace(I pour like a spaz) on golden body. Good citrus floral aroma. Easy drinking though above average bitterness finishing in a bit of astringency and malt, overall though a citrus treat. A serviceable IPA if not more, thanks Taliskar for the hitchhiker.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, from Brennan’s in Madison (picked up during my stay for GTMW). No date found on bottle. Clear orange golden color. Pours with an airy fizzing off-white head. Fades to a thin amount that leaves some decent lace, though (at least initially). Medium body. Kind of smooth, soft, light to moderate carbonation. Light slick finish. Some bigger metallic mustiness in the flavor that makes me wonder how fresh this is. Some nice pine and citrus hop too, though. Light bready malt, kind of a spicier finish. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet, more dry taste. As it is, just an alright IPA at best. Hard to ignore that metallic aroma in the finish. After I get halfway through and finish my notes, it only gets worse with each progressive sip... Managed to finish, though

Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma is big grapefruit, orange, citrus, touch of biscuit. Taste is some grapefruit, touch of sweet biscuit and caramel, bitter finish. Aroma was good, taste was a bit weak, and too bitter at the end.
