3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Orange/amber body with a medium off white head, some good lace, and fair durability. Citrus and pine at the forefront in the aroma, with some dark toffee and slight fruitiness lingering behind. Medium body and carbonation, quite resinous, very dry palate. The hops assault comes early, overshadowing whatever sweetness the malt brings to the game. A strong citrus peel character dictates the lengthy, bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice hazy golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head that once it dissipated there was a decent looking stringy lacing sliding into the beer.
The smell had some piney to lemon/orange aromas delicately coming underneath my nose.
The taste was mainly sweet but had a decent bitter piney background.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for an AIPA as there was just enough harshness about it.
Overall, I say this was a decent AIPA to come back to, however, not a standout.

Bottle. This is a middle of the road IPA without much to distinguish it from the pack.

Weak hops flavor on this brew. Would expect a bit more hoppiness from an IPA. Pour is a nice light amber with a thin white head.

Copper pour with a thick and creamy off-white head. Aroma is primarily citrus with some sweet malt notes. Flavor is hop forward, lots of bittering citrus and floral notes. Some earthy malt on the backend, palette is sticky and resinous. Well balanced.

bottle. clear amber with a large white head. more toasty and caramel notes in aroma compared to the pale ale (grateful) and much darker in color. flavor is more malty and sweeter than the APA also. some caramel and munich notes are very obvious. i’m pretty sure the APA is hoppier too. medium bodied and smooth.
