4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-clear yellow to orange color with a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing strung itself in a messy sort of way.
The smell had a decent sharp sweet citrus/floral note over top of a light orange and tangerine aroma. Light caramel tones to come in underneath to balance.
The taste was mainly bittersweet through the citrus/floral hop content but the caramel aspects try to balance but stay underneath.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and good to me. There was a good harshness and almost went just a tad overboard, luckily, it stays right where it should be.
Overall, good AIPA I know I would have again if I could get it.

On draft at Bacchus, where I stopped in during a bicycle ride. A big, rich, sweet IPA! Lots of grassy, piney hop taste, saturated with flavor. Plenty of malty sweetness too, and some resin oil. It finishes up peppy and tingly. First rate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is transparent golden in color with a tight white head. Nose has a bit of slightly stale grain up front, a touch doughy, and moderate malt sweetness. Hops are herbal with a decent amount of citrus. Taste is a bit doughier and sweeter. Some stale grain, pungent sticky caramel malt, chewy feel, lots of fleshy orange citrus hop in back with low bitterness.

At Schlafly Bottleworks in a shifter. The orange color is nice. The aroma has a citrus, piney smell. It has a nice taste but afterwards it has an astringent aftertaste. Nice IPA though.
