3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. It pours a golden color with a white head. The aroma is mildly tropical fruity sweet. The flavor is pretty dry with a bigger body than the regular IPA, but still a bit skimpy on the late hops. Solid spicy bitter hop finish. Very similar to the regular IPA.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at brewery. Clear golden with almost no head. Very faint grapefruit aroma; where’s the hops? At least this one has some body to the palate - gets an extra generosity point for that. Taste is cereal grains, malt, vanilla, and caramel with some hints of grassy hops and a light bitterness. The best offering by far.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden pour with a sticky white head. The aroma is okay - a little bit too much malt sweetness and a kind of harsh ethanolic flavour. A little bit of earthy/fruity hoppiness but without any resin or dankness.
