3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one is from the Peoria, Illinois International Beer Festival. Due to lack of space when drinking, my notes won’t be that great on these beers. Was a bit shocked to see it come out of a can. Nice aroma but, the taste wasn’t that great.

12 oz. can from Tyler’s bottle shop Carrboro
Ar: Fresh, hoppy aroma. Lots of grapefruit zest and a bit of resin.
Ap: Pretty translucent amber with a frothy off-white head. Very nice laceage. Yeah, I can make up words.
T: Caramelly sweetness up front, moderate sweetness for an IPA. Moderate bitterness for an IPA - nice citrus.
P: Somewhat creamy body for an IPA with a mild carbonation.
O: Excellent IPA. Hop fruitiness, lovely bitterness, touch of malty sweetness.

From Can. Pours a medium clear amber with small off-white head, mostly diminishing. Good lacing throughout. Nice hop aroma of citrus and pine. Good, well-balanced taste with right amount of malt with the hops. Dry finish of an IPA. Would be happy to take a few sixers of this on the Current River - Prost!
