3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours a clear copper color with a white head. Aroma of equal hops (slightly citrus) and malt. Medium body, nicely balanced between the hops and malt. Clean finish with a bit of the hops lingering. Very nice!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 On tap. Clear copper with white head and plenty of lacing. Floral hoppy aroma with fruit and pine. Taste is moderately sweet followed by pleasant citrusy hop bitterness and spice. Balanced nicely by bready caramel malt. Mouthfeel medium, maybe slightly chewy. Smooth drinking IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle. Aroma of hops and vanilla cake. Bronze amber with weak head. Good mix of floral citrus and pine hops. Could probably use a touch more malt, but otherwise quite balanced. Pepper, earthy notes and a hint of alcohol as well. Quite a nice drink.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Balanced and smooth, more of an APA than an IPA. Malty caramel, a bit of citrus, and a balance of hops. Weak aroma.

The nose was nice pine and citrus I was ready for a nice IPA. The front of the mouth is pretty much a regular IPA but it left my mouth with a metallic aftertaste, the warmer the brew got the stronger the aftertaste. I have had 3 cans of the 6 and poured out the last 2-3 oz of each
