3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle
Clean, simple, and full of flavor. This is what an IPA should be like. While the ABV is a bit too high to call it sessionable or a lawnmower beer it does not wear down the palate with an aggressive assault that makes it tiresome after one glass. Thanks to tastybeer for the bottle.
Aroma / Appearance - A rich pillowy head builds to fill the pint glass before slowly collapsing in on itself. When it does a bronze transparent base appears. Marmalade, orange, and creamsicle brighten the air with the addition of citrusy hops. Inviting and light it offers the hop head promises of a great time.
Flavor / Palate - Resiny hops cling to the corners of the palate. Marmalade and grass sparkle in the throat. A moderate rosy finish dries up after providing a refreshing touch. This is a fine example of what an IPA can be when it does not try to go over the top.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells surprisingly like a biscuit and gravy. Chaffy taste but not bad at all. Not too hoppy either!
