3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Floral nose with suggestions of lime rise from a clear golden amber pour with a rapidly disapearing one finger white head and abundent laciing. The palate is overall bitter. Floral flavors combine with pine, citrus, and hop bitterness. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, very drinkable but the tastwe is rather one deminishable.

On tap - dark orange in color and a light head. Grainy on the first taste but more earthy hop taste after that. Some sweetness. Medium body and medium dry on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Spec’s Downtown
Aroma: The aroma is pine and a little citrus, some caramel and slightly buttery malt notes
Appearance: It pours a murky orange color with a small white head and some spotty lace
Flavor: The flavor is malty and a little sweet, some buttery notes, and an okay hop bitterness
Palate: It has an alright mouthfeel, not great, with average carbonation, and a light dry finish
I wasn’t particularly impressed by this one. It’s an okay beer, but from an IPA perspective, this is much closer to the bottom of the style than the top.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smell is fruity, lightly perfumy hops with some faint grain sweetness as it sits. Smell is pleasant, but just a bit subtle. Taste is lightly hoppy with some cereal grain maltiness showing up. Light to moderate bitterness. Tastes nice, and is pretty mildly hopped compared to a lot of today’s IPAs. Nice full body and crisp carbonation. Very drinkable and a decent beer, but not a hop assault.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours a very dark amber with a high, soft, fine-grained, cream-buff head. Nose is lime, floral perfume, and sandalwood. Dry on the front of the tongue, with the lime note remaining; there is still a perfumed edge to it that’s kind of nice and different, though it takes some getting used to. Caramel sweetness on the finish. Good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewery. Light citrus and pine aroma. Pours crystal clear light amber with a foamy white head that leaves tons of lacing. Light to medium bodied. Nicely balanced hops. Clean finish. This is actually a pretty good beer.
