3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours cloudy gold with a soft white head. Yeasty aroma, estery, citrus, very floral. Flavor had quite a bit of yeast to it, sort of like a shaken keg, but my pint was much clearer then Jason’s who must have got the pint after me, his looked more like soup. Very nice beer though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Bistro. Pours a cloudy gold orange, with a medium white head. Smells pretty spicy, some cinnamon, yeast, and mild hops, all are evident as I dig a bit deeper. The flavor was a really intersting blend of hops and spice. Kind of like a peppery bitterness. The hops made a strong finish though as I got a good dose of hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Pretty unique bevy of things going on here. I would call this attempt pretty successful, I enjoyed it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy blood-orange juice color underneath a bright white head. Nose is primarily yeasty but with a somewhat nice dry tangering backing. Flavors were yeasty but not overly so thank god. The beer is significantly bitter and i think it somewhat works until the astringent ending.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer followed a Brooklyn Victory Wit a the Gramercy Tavern in NYC so the overhopped bitterness of an IPA really stood out to me....pours a nice orangish colour with a decent white head.....the bitterness of this beer stood out largely because I had already drank two pints with citrus overtones....however, some fruity tastes were present in this beer...perhaps banana.....overall, Iím just not sure if the bitterness was balanced out by the other flavourings.
