2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
In seeking the balance - as stated in the brewers’ blurb - this IPA doesn’t seem to have much in the way of distinctiveness. Had on draft, it was just the right color, a pale gold; and had just the right aroma (a fresh grassiness IMO). The mouthfeel was pleasant without singularity. The result is a beer that went well with the food served but didn’t get in the way of the various food flavors. If you like middle of the road, this IPA is it.

Draft. Hazy gold with thick head. Aroma is hops, flavor is caramel, hoppy but balanced. Great beer.

The beer pours a medium orange with a white head. The head is nice and soapy, a nice cover at the end and good clingy lacing.
The aroma is super light citrus hops mixture that doeesn’t really bring a whole lot to the plate.
The taste is also super light citrus to start. The middle and end are both pretty dead but at the end, almost two seconds later you get hit with a huge infusion of bitter hops. Its a nice delayed reaction.

Had at Stephens green. Pour is a deep orange with little to no head. Aroma is very sweet hops with hints of strawberry. Flavor is a smooth hop that doesn’t over power. Light on the palate.

What a sweet name for a beer. This poured a slightly hazy amber color with an off-white head. Aroma was very hoppy with some apricot and floral notes. Taste is also very hoppy, even for an IPA. Balance is pretty good, but maybe even a little too hoppy. Apricot, citrus, and floral notes with some resin also present. Overall a very good IPA, quite drinkable.

Golden, hoppy aroma with floral/grassy notes and some maltiness. Smooth and fairly bitter.

A quality IPA which has a good amount of hops but also a nice punch from the malts that are used during the brewing process this is a nice change if you want to try and olde english IPA

Tap @ Pulino’s. Hazy orange pour, scant head and lace. Heavy medium-roasted malt body underpinning a variety of hops. Grapefruit and resinous hops lending an oily mouth feel. There is a faint fructose sweetness in the middle, but the hops return and the finish is long and bitter.
