3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice amber orange with thin white head. Aroma of citrus hops ever so slight, but dulled compared to other non-floral hops. Flavor at first was extremely different for an IPA, but came back somewhat, but defniitely has it’s own character in the IPA world.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, from Brennan’s in Madison. Picked up during my stay for GTMW. Lot # on bottle reads 8140602. Mostly hazy orange color. Pours with a finger of off-white / khaki head. Leaves good rows of lace. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of creamy light carbonation. Light slick finish. Nice texture to it, and more full-bodied than expected for a lighter IPA. Good mild orange citrus hop aroma, light pine, resin and spice. Kind of a woodsy flavor profile to it, lightly herbal, which I dig. Light caramel malt. Moderate plus bitter taste, moderate sweet. Great, balanced lighter but full-flavored IPA. Nice complex unique direction they took with the flavor, and it works.

Bottle - A thick head, amber color. Hop flavor all around this one. While it does have a good strong hop flavor, I wouldn’t call it very strong. Not a beer I could drink a lot of but certainly a good change of pace. Got it in a large format bottle so it was perfect for sharing with my wife.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper golden under a generous foamy off-cream head. Fruity nose with little grapefruit zest and clementine but with a earthy leafy resin and earthy biscuity caramel. The flavor is nutty sweet with a nougaty earthy caramel tone followed with a little earthy hop bitterness, a touch of bittersweet grapefruit zest and a light floral finish. Pretty lovely and malty sweet.

On tap at the Bitter Tasting Room, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma reveals notes herbal hops, some skunky notes, and grass. Flavour is a bit muffled, with notes of herbal, grassy notes, and light sweet malt. Pretty bland IPA with some slight off-notes. Not a very good IPA.
