3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a copper/orange body with a gigantic, enormous (gigantinormous?) head. Off white, about 4 fingers thick and very sudsy. Leaves some impressive lcobweb acing as well. Good looking beer. Nose of soapy hops, citrus fruits, grass, pine and sweet caramel malts. Everything is a little muted compared to the best examples of the style, however. What is there is nice, and this beer has no noticeable flaws in the aroma department. Fore is fairly sweet with the caramel malts and citrus sweetness. Middle to back picks up a decent amount of bitterness and pine, along with some soapy hints. Finish is bitter, pine, citrus and malts. Lengthy. Medium bodied, could be a bit more oily for the style, but that’s a minor nitpick. This one is a bit underrated in my view, easy to drink and nothing glaring as far as flaws go.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle from UDBeernut for Krampus) Pours a semi-hazy orange/copper color with a very thin white head that leaves a thin film. Aroma is mildly hoppy, with some orange, maybe pine, caramel, and an off smell that I can’t quite place. Maybe dill? Taste is kind of a biscuit-caramel sweetness mixed with a minerally flavor and light hits of orange and bitter hops. Not really much else there. It’s not offensive, but it’s not really much of anything. Overall a middling IPA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle via BoostIPA for Krampus pours a clear copper/orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is very muted faded caramel malt and regurgitated hop spice. Very mild light taste of non distinct hop spice same goes for the malt profile. IPA Light? Not much as far a flavor, might be sessionable on a hot day, certainly not offensive.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not one of the best American IPA in circulation, good color and the foam is washed out but then the taste without persistence and notes with palatati monotonous and unpleasant

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle, no date. Clear light amber white rapidly dissipating white head. Funky smell... Not much hop action, unbalanced, funny aftertaste... May be past it’s prime? Meh... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours clear amber with a small white head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is all caramel and citrus.. no hop profile at all. The taste is dry, medium bitter, unbalanced, and unenjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells a bit of citrus. Preferred by its taste. Some wheat? Good IPA for the price point ($8.99 box of 6)
