3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ brewpub. Orange with copper highlights. No head. Smells stale and flawed with popcorn butter. Oily palate. There is too much diacetyl but the hops cover up most of the problems and has a good malt profile.

Slightly hazy tan. No head. The aroma has typically orangey simcoe notes. Mild bitterness. Soft orange and mango notes. A mellow pale ale. Might be an old keg, and shows a hint of diacetyl as a result.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Second Street Downtown location. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Aroma of sweaty, oily hops. Flavor of very sweaty Simcoe hops (a real Simcoe bomb) with some grassy hops and hop oils. I sure love that Simcoe! Even though this is technically a pale ale, I found it hoppier and preferred it to the other IPAs on tap.
