3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep orange brown. Nose is initially pretty nice: grapefruit, floral hops, some resin, but then kind fell apart. Taste is mostly on the bitter dank side, with an off chemically unclean finish. Would take it in a pinch depending on what else is on offer, but would probably rather just pass.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy light amber - low carbonation, but a moderate lace - aroma of orange oil, caramel, grapefruit - low carbonation, watery/thin body - besides that, the flavor is decent - moderate sweet citrus/orange flesh, earthy and peppery hops - moderately resinous - there is a heavy/clunky caramel sweetness which I tend not to like in my ipas anymore - finish is leafy and fairly bitter, bordering on astringent, but only mildly so - a mixed bag.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Low carbonation leaves it lifeless and static in the glass with only a short off white head. And it has a brownish/amber hue instead of pale, which I guess India Pale Ale doesnít need to be anymore? Sweet orange and pineapple juice and tree sap and caramel chew malt. Sweet and chewy and then quickly thinning into a limp, watery, flabby finish of bitter hemp oil. Once it reaches 50 degrees thereís a small bit of concrete mix but otherwise it maintains the orange / caramel thing, with swine-y notes of alcohol to give it that furniture polish chemical / fume smell. While the aroma and flavor components arenít terrible, body and balance and texture all are terrible. Squeeze the cans, feel the limpness right there.

Draft. Pours an initially thick, poorly retained ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a very slightly hazy copper (SRM 18 body.....nose is light pine, hints of citrus, light cereal, no esters.....taste is cereal, suggestion of sweetness, then a finishing moderate light pine, citrus bitterness......mouth feel medium, slightly astringent, carbonation low. This is a light IPA, reasonably balanced, but nothing special. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On nitro and Freshcraft in Denver. A nice copper nitro pour with a creamy white head. Hops are tined down by the nitro in aroma, but still a decent IPA with some pine and citrus and a back end malt profile.
