Tall Boy 16 oz can, poured into a glass, light amber clear hue, creamy white diminishing head, minimal lacing, faint citrus juice smell, medium light body, seems watered down, some hop juice but something funky in the aftertaste and nose. Guys at the store sold it to me. My fault. I bought it. Meh

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared during RBWG 2015. Pours clear orange gold with a frothy white head. Pale bread in the aroma, rindy orange. Medium sweet flavor with crackery pale malts, old pine needles, citrus peel, metal. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Boring finish, perhaps a bit aged, with dusty pine, leaves, dry citrus, more crackers. So so.

Not your prototypical ipa but I kind of enjoyed it. Soft but passable hop aroma w/ a clear golden pour & thin white head. The taste has an underlying bitterness but isn’t dry & is quite drinkable. I understand the low scores for the style but found it to be a decent beer overall!

Pours a light coppery color with off-white head. Caramel malt, light citrus, and funky pine notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt than hop.

Hazy dark gold/amber with a tall, sticky white head.
Fruity citrus hop aroma.
The flavor is mostly bitter but there is a good malt support balancing this out nicely.
Good solid IPA.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home. Pours a copper color, white head, dissipates into a thin laced film. Aroma is caramel malts, orange and citrusy hops. Taste is slightly earthy, citrusy hops, lots of cracker and caramel malts. Malts overpower the hops, finishes with an underwhelming bitterness. Palate is medium body, high carbonation. Malts wash out some good favors in this one. Below average IPA.

Hotel room breakfast tasting with Jack & Leighton, Hilton Tampa, 22/02/15.
Golden orange with a moderate off white covering.
Nose is caramel malt, light pine, bitter citric peel.
Taste is caramel malt forward, orange, light pine, toasted malt.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
So so - generic old skook brew pub malt driven IPA affair.

A fairly basic IPA. The usually hoppy nose and piney flavor. Good alcohol and balanced well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a cloudy golden-orange with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, bread, citrus hops, citrus peel and finally, earthy and herbal notes. Flavour of caramel malt, resiny hops, citrus, light vegetal notes and a long bitter finish -- hops mostly come through in the finish. Medium bodied. Something doesn’t quite gel here, it’s just decent.

Pours a hazy golden with a smallish, but lasting head. Aromas of pine and grapefruit. Aromas continue in the taste. Little bitterness and finishes light. I like it.
