3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orage pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is overly grainy with some hops on the backend. I was expecting something a little more hoppy. Im hoping this one will be more dialed in but, as it stands its kind of bland.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden pour with an orange tint and one finger of off white head. Pretty middle if the road and balanced. Nose shows a nice sweetness and fruity note. Starting to get a bit of the IPA. Citrus rind and some woody notes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft from the brewery. Pours a dark amber with a generous white head. Nose shows fruity bubblegum in addition to the citrus and hops. A maltier APA, but not just sweet. Well balanced and delicate bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Trophy, second visit to this excellent new addition to the Raleigh scene. It’s a pretty standard APA in most respects: deep copper pour, light fluffy head, and a balanced nose. Slightly floral tastes balanced by biscuit malts, moderately dry finish. Good quaffer on a warm day but not overly impressive.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught in a flight. Pours a cloudy amber color with a moderate head. Nose and taste are both slightly bitter. Not bad, but nothing terribly special.
