3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Squat bottle from Capone’s. Pours bright gold, almost fluorescent, with 1-finger sticky white head that laces all over the place. Nose is piney hops, lemongrassy citrus, fruity. Tastes piney hoppy, with pale malt, tropical fruit, pineapple, orange, and some mild funk and earthiness. Complex finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nose is sweet and heavily citric, lemon and grapefruit, light cleanser and spice, medium pine; really has a lot of "Americanized Wit" in it, so goodbye to style guidelines. Pour a cloudy yellow (golden under light) with a huge off-white head, so slow going there. Taste is oily hop juice, crisp light-medium body with light-medium resin and bitterness, nice and oily with lesser grassy tones, but any hopes of earthy or wooden elements are dashed. Clean if a touch salty. Malt is one-dimensional and a little weak, but there’s enough there to support the hops at least, and there’s a fresh, zesty sort of vitality that makes me want to drink more.

Definitely a citrusy-floral taste, but I was not blown away. Does not quite have the robust body one would expect from an IPA. Good, but average.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber with a tan head. Hops with a lot of earthiness, hints of citrus zest, but a bit trashy. Light floral notes, a bit of resin. Not overly strong, but full nonetheless.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, much thanks to Scott. Pours out a decent copper color with a small off white head. Aroma is floral/herbal/grassy hops, caramel and bread. taste is grass, herbal hops, some odd spicy bitterness, caramel malts, cereal, some undercooked warm bread. Eh...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle thanks to Scott. Poured a orange/amber body with a bubbly white head of average size. Aroma is earthy, old citrus meat and grains. Body is fuller from rather strong carbonation and a slightly dry bitter finish, not in a good way either. Flavor is the same as the aroma mostly. Earthy, dirty citrus fruits, some grains and old toast. Meh this is not good.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is malty and hoppy with caramel and citrus/pine hops. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The palate is average. Overall this is better than average but not great

This was a very underwhelming beer. Flavor was just okay. It didn’t have that hops bite I look for an IPA. Skip this one.
