3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours an apricot color. The head is a fluffy one finger off-white shade. All in all, the looks are typical for the style: frothy head, okay retention, and plenty of lacing left behind.
S: Aromatically, hops do jump out from the glass - mainly the floral, lemony variety. Sourdough bread seems to make an appearance, too. Iíve grown to point where I can smell Centennial hops from a mile away, and this brewís got íem.
T: Flavor-wise, itís sweeter than what the aroma let on. I was waiting for the bitterness to prick the tongue...and instead I got a sweet, caramel forward brew where the hops are only there to balance instead of being showcased. Late in the aftertaste, some floral and spicy hop notes do appear. Aside from the typical caramel and toffee notes, itís also a bit earthy.
M: Itís a rather clean brew, which at least helps quash some of the sweetness well. It glides down the tongue with a crisp bite, too Iíd almost call it thirst quenching...no, I will call it thirst quenching. Not dry by any stretch, but it does a good job of going down easily anyways. The sweet finish doesnít bother me at all.
O: Iíll give it one thing - itís drinkable. Very drinkable, even for a 7.3% IPA. It just doesnít have the most interesting flavor is all. If I had bought a 6 pack of this (which I didnít) I wouldnít have any trouble killing it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours bright orange with a thick ivory head and good lacing. Aromas of pine and citrus. Taste is grapefruit, bitter hops, pine and cut by sweet malts. Nothing much stands out about it good or bad; just a very average IPA.

12 oz can..from a six pack..bought in a small convenience store in Tyrone GA
Poured into clear plastic cup in hotel.
Pours a nice dark orange with a nice thick off white head..great lace.
Sweet malt and fruity, citrus hop aromas.
Taste the same as aromas..balanced..bitter orange and toffee..nice but not what I am used to.
Mouthfeel is OK..well carbonated and medium body...getting too much raw alcohol in there also
A average IPA...far from Oregon.

Smells surprisingly like a biscuit and gravy. Chaffy taste but not bad at all. Not too hoppy either!
