3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear orange color, medium head, good lacing. Mostly grain/hay aroma with slight hops in the mix. Flavor is more IPA. Pine resin and more of the grain. Nice overall but not spectacular.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau in The RC. Massive grapefruit and orange aroma. Beautiful. Pours a pale gold that is clear with a full white head of small bubbles and nice lacing. Pronounced citrus (orange/grapefruit) and freshly cut grass balance well with above average bitterness and slight malt that could lend more support. Finishes slightly dry.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light orange pour with a white head. Light herbal notes followed by tons of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, and tangerine. Floral notes in the background, some sweet bread, and a hint of caramel. Nice bitterness on the palate to balance the little bit of caramel sweetness. Plenty of fruity hop character. Great citrus notes and a light tropical quality. Very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Oggi’s in Mission Viejo. A for effort, but seriously it tasted like eating a flower. Also, very earthy. I like citrus bombs, so this one was hard for me to drink and rate. I think it is worth trying.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear amber with a big white head. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus, pine, floral with some light malt backbone. Flavor of bitter hops mostly with a light caramel malt sweetness, alcohol well hidden. Medium body with a long, bitter finish. This is a solid IPA, lots of hop bitterness and very drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fairly average across the board. Not really hoppy enough and a bit doughy maltwise. Not bad but nothing id seek out.

Orange colored with light, creamy head. Clean, refreshing taste. Nice hops aroma and taste. This is a less malty style of IPA that I generally prefer. No sweet aftertaste. Tasty!
