3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity tropical floral nose with biscuits and a touch of toast/caramel. Pours golden orange amber, thin creamy ring of foam, nice lace. Nice filtration. Good looking beer. Biscuity and toasty, floral, orangey, a little catty, touch of tea in the finish. Not bitter, but well balanced and very drinkable. Plus one point for name. "It’s The Trooper!"

Golden color out of the tap with a foamy off white head. Orange and lemon hop nose. This is a big citrus hop beer with sweet orange juice with English muffin and a nice orange zest finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This I enjoyed more than the XXX IPA. It has a fairly strong amount of malt and a decent hop flavor. Could maybe use a bit more hops even. Good.

Bright, clear orange. Citrus gel and malt aroma. Nothing spectacular, but a solid brewpub AIPA. Medium to slightly heavy body. On tap, brewpub.

Sampler at the brewpub. Copper color with a white head. All the right aromas for an IPA. Good balance, hops are there and the finish is dry and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Sun Up. Pours a dark golden orange appearance with an off white head. Spicy, somewhat herbal, piney hoppy, grapefruity aroma. Fairly malty, light caramel, sweet, citrusy hoppy flavor. Flavor was a bit disappointing but still not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Sun Up. Clear amber/orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malt with pine, citrus and herbal hops. Flavor is sweet caramel malt with a medium hop bitterness and some fruity yeast esters. Medium body with a slightly rough mouth feel. Probably great when fresh but this one seemed a bit old.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask. I had this on cask, which I think is unfair :o) This is smooth. Semi-sweet finish -- toffee and hops. Somewhat of a garlic bite. I liked it though. I could have another of this especially versus what other beers they offer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at brewpub. Not much on the nose. Pours orange with a bit of head. Doesn’t have much lacing. Fairly inert on the tongue. Pretty boring.
