3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Pours a golden straw hue hint of copper with a thin white head. Aroma is subtle with a citrus hop, some tropical fruit, bready, and a little sweet malt. Taste is similar with citrus, floral notes, and a little pepper. Taste is not intensive compared to typical west coast style IPAs. Mouthfeel is light to medium with an above average carbonation. Finishes clean and pretty smooth with a subtle hop tones. Very drinkable IPA, almost session like. Surprisingly, pretty enjoyable.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. A very mild and subdued ipa, hops are held back and it is not particularly bitter in a style that is known for being bitter. Some sweet malt, and sweet potato. I have no idea what the super secret experimental hop could be.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Thanks, andrewje41! Pours a slightly hazy darker amber color with a smallish light tan head on there. Nose seems pretty earthy to me, doesn’t seem all that bright and fresh and first glance. Taste is fairly bitter and a bit earthy again, and and the bitterness builds throughout the drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle poured. Pours a dark copper color with a thick, creamy head and lacing. Nice even bready malt and hops aroma. Creamy body to it with some nice citrus hop flavor throughout. Drinks very nicely. Very nice hop compliments. A bit of a lingering grapefruit flavor. Quite impressed here. Really enjoyed this one.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I tried one of these last fall and wasn’t too impressed. Having this one now super fresh and I’m pleasantly surprised. Amber color with a foamy off white head. Some bready malts and light citrus on the nose. Taste is super clean, tropical fruits with a nice malt balance. Kind of a cross between a west coast and English IPA.

On tap at Happy Gnome. Pours a clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma combines citrus with a bit of pine and light grains underlying. Flavor is more earthy pine with a bit of grass and some earthy grains backing.

Bottle. Pours a hazy lemon color with an OK lacing head. Hoppy aroma with some spruce in the background. Not complex, but delightful. Tart and hoppy in the flavor. Not overpowering, but nice. Grapefruit finish. A really nice IPA.
