3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewer - Pours a hazy golden color with smallish white head. Aroma has a fair amount of citrusy hops and a touch of slightly toasty malt. Flavor is fairly hoppy, with citrusy, lemony hops, with a touch of malt backbone and caramel notes. Finish is fairly bitter but smooth and not overpowering. This is a decent IPA overall, but in a world of craft beer that is flooded with good IPAs, this is just in the middle of the pack somewhere. I’ve definitely had worse, but I’ve had better as well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 19/20
Got a bottle from a trade. Pours a clear orange color with a thick thick bubbly chunky head. The head really lingers on for a while leaving a webbed lacing. A nice light fresh floral hop nose. A hopped carbonation upfront. A nice mix of floral notes and a grapefruit citrus. A touch of caramel in the middle. Crisp and drinkable. A very decent IPA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Floral nose, marigolds. Clear amber, medium head, good lacing. Flavor is of lillies although it is doughy on the back. Alcohol is noticeable. This is a floral IPA on the upper limit of alcohol content, not quite an IIPA, but not terribly quaffable either. Good choice for an immediate dose of hops.

Ppirs a hazy bright orange. A citrus hop aroma. Some pilsner like characteristics with grains, pine, and malt, but still a nice bitter citrus hop taste and aftertaste. Very dry.
