3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange pour. Nose of citrus and caramel malt. Flavor is murky herbal citrus bitterness with toasted/caramel malt. Clingering citrus and caramel. Very English-like in character. Kind of forgettable.

A very mild english style sort of ipa. Malts get in the way a bit too much for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Silver Creek. Thick, not even close to filtered orange-tan. Pretty decent IPA, a little homebrewish. A little bit of earthy APA tones. Sort of and unfiltered English version I guess. Nice and drinkable, but maybe a little too yeasty for the style. Pretty well balanced, lots of earthy tones. Easy drinker. unique example.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Silver Creek. Poured crystal-clear lighter orange with a splotchy off-white head. The aroma was sweet and juicy with citrus leading.. some pine backed it up.. just the right dose of sweet malty backing.. well-done! The flavor was nearly as juicy as the nose, with caramel and fruity notes surrounded by grapefruit and pine on the moderately bitter edges.. not complex, but certainly enjoyable. Medium-bodied and very well balanced on the palate.. I could drink a lot of this!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a classic orangey/brown. Aroma is subtly hoppy, pine, fruit, some resin. Taste is sweet tangerine, pine, caramel, some stickiness. Finishes lightly with some sweetness and some alcohol. The barkeep mentioned last year’s version was hoppier - I guess I would’ve liked to try that one as this seemed more like an solid, slightly hoppy, APA.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draught at Silver Creek: pours a clear copper with a medium sized white head. Plenty of floral aroma, and strong hops. Taste is light and bubbly, citrusy all around, with pleasent grapefruit flavors. Finishes rather light for an IPA, but very nice anyway.

Amber to red. Almost clear. Some creamy white head.
Fruity hop aroma, spicy.
Bitter, alcoholic, and spicy flavor, but clears quickly, inviting another sip.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good. From the tap at the brewpub. English in style, with a nearly opaque copper color and thick creamy head. Nice hop crispness, but smooth and sessionable.
