3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear and bright copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded rather quickly. The nose is toasty malt with a little caramel and English hops. The flavor is just lightly bitter but it balances the light residual sweetness from the toasty malt pretty well. Some moderate lingering bitterness followed by toasty and lightly husky grain. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation, a little huskiness to the texture. Decent beer I suppose, but not my style as far as IPAs go.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to taster (shared by me with the group; thanks tgncc). Looks solid; a transparent orange with thin off-white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells of fairly bitter hops with a big pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours perfectly clear gold with a moderate, creamy head. Nose has dry hay, husky grains, dry orange and various stone fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor with melon and peach, some bitter citrus rind and pine, touches of bubblegum. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Not warming on the finish but does provide some boost, along with further melon, light bread, peach, orange and pine. Nothing wrong here.

Cloudy amber orange with no head. Very malty aroma. First sip is malt. There is hop presence, but this by far the maltiest "ipa" I’ve ever had. Finish is vanilla and toffee. I cant say i care for this beer.
