3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A half finger of head on a dark amber colored body.
The aroma is mild grapefruit and faint overall.
Thereís a solid lemon bitterness in the taste. Itís straight forward and bold.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Itís a "no-frills" IPA and build well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can @ hotel room. Not sure if this should be a new entry or not, but this is titled "Cropduster Mid-American IPA". 6.5% abv. Pours a hazy golden appearance with a nice, off white head. Mild tropical fruit (pineapple, passionfruit, mango), a bit spicy, zesty aroma. Tangy, creamy, citrus fruity, mango, orange, pineapple, somewhat herbal bitter flavor. Pretty tasty and easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Urbandale Chicken Coop. Slightly hazy bright bronze orange. Nose of grapefruit and dough. Some peanuts. Taste is dry grapefruit rind and hay. There is a little bit of bread crust. Ok, but more like an APA.

On tap at the brewery. Really not much to it--not an IPA worth drinking particularly. It was certainly drinkable, but I didnít stick around for another beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a pint glass.
A: Pale orange/dark yellow. Aggressive pour gave little head, but what was there laced really thick.
S: Mild aroma of floral and grassy hops. Some spice and citrus.
T: Pleasantly bitter, the way I like my IPAs. Spicier than the smell would suggest. Biscuit malts and grapefruit. Bold, like all beer should be, but not off putting.
M: Not creamy, but smooth with a good amount of carbonation.
D: Tasty and bold (great for not getting bored). Cheap also, so you wonít feel guilty about putting back a few.
Cheap and delicious.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Pours copper with almost no head. Smells of hops and grass. It has a taste of soap and burnt malt. It is moderately sweet with a large bitter afterbite. It is strongly astringent and long lasting. Not a very pleasant beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
For an IPA, this one was a disappointment. It had a bit of a skunky aroma/flavor which makes me think the bottle may have been a bit old. Still, not very bitter, not very citrusy, not very impressive.
