3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can from Crossroads. Poured a deep rusty sunburnt orange under a smaller foamy off white head with lots of large clinging bubbles. Aroma of juicy orange slices, citrus meat, dough, old lemon and a touch of wet pine. Body is medium with average carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor is a bit weak. Notes of older citrus meat, some bad bread crutsts, hint of tea, dough and earth. Meh, there are way better lower ABV out there now-a-days.

Can. Pours a clear dark coppery co;or with a nice head that fades to some lacing. Light aroma of citrus, malt sweetness, a touch herbal with spice in the background. Taste of pine, malt, caramel sweetness with a bit of herbs. Nice bitterness with a clean-dry finish. Medium body, crisp and refreshing. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer that is good for a few.

Poured from can. Hop and spruce aroma. Really cloudy orange with lacing. Seems to be some sediment floating about. I taste pine, grapefruit and grassy hops with malt and pepper. Nicely drinkable even with all the hops. Decent brew.

Pours a hazy yellow with a thick white head, loads of citrus on the nose, the taste is a bit subdued, but really good. A good amount of citrus and pines, not a lot bitterness, slightly dry finish.

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent light golden orange with white lacing. Smells nice and hoppy with a light pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant bitterness. Solid on the palate. A good example of the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bubbly, well-carbonated head due to canning. Finger-length. Aroma is caramel malt and some pine to start before becoming more citrus/floral; classic IPA aromas, in essence. Flavor is malty with slight piney hop and a little bit of tea. Palate somewhat watery. Nonetheless, a decent session IPA. Not a catty mess like some others in this sub-style, or even Schlafly’s American IPA, which I found unbearable.

Drank out of a can. Aroma is citric and piney. Taste is heavy on the citrus small metallic taste due to the can. Small bitter aftertaste. Better then I thought it was going to be, quite surprised

On tap @ Brass Monkey, NY. Clear deep golden color with thin creamy white head, good lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of strong citrus and floral hops, grassy, biscuit malt and mild yeast. Taste starts with moderate sweet malt, following is citric and grassy sour, while finish is moderate bitter with long aftertaste. Full body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Pleasantly refreshing everyday IPA...
