3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in Indianapolis, IN. Pours a clear copper colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet caramel malts, grapefruit citrus florals, some earthy pines, and a touch of toast. Flavor is similar. Grapefruit and orange florals and light pines up front with a medium sweet caramel, touch of toasted toffee, and some earthiness in the middle. Finishes balanced and moderately bitter with a light toasted toffee malt sweetness and a nice citrus hopping. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a soft, somewhat creamy, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent DIPA. Nicely hopped with some citrus earth and pines as well as a medium sweet, lightly toasted malt backing. Not bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a uncarbonated transparent light brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was hoppy and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice caramel/hop aroma, pours a clear amber, with almost no head. This is a more malt forward IPA then I usually prefer. There’s a bit of grassy hop notes in the finish. This would be a good IIPA for those who prefer their beers on the malt forward side.
