3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery during a media event. Again, impression may be different than when it comes in cans. Body is darker than the Sidekick I just had. The nose is not as pronounced either, just a bit of fruity hop. More conflict here between the hops and malts, too. Both are in the forefront, seeming like an all-barley battle against an IPA level hop load. Definitely some Pacific region hops involved. No particular hop predominates, just a pronounced aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Warrenville brewpub. Piney one note, standard IPA. Lacking depth and substance. Even hopheads will find this to be boring.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap. Clear golden appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, grass, light pine and a hint of caramel malt. Similar flavor, adding a resinous hop bitterness. Medium body. Pretty fresh and slightly above average for the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper with bright white head. Aroma is nice but sbtle. Teopical fruit mostly. Flavor is light hops up front but not very bitter unfortunately. Some nice matliness but also an off flavor about midway on the pallet. Not terrible but could use more hops.

Znikomy aromat. Słodki, cukierkowy, lekko winny. W smaku półsłodkie. Ze średnią trawiasta goryczka. Początek słodki, owocowy. Mocno nasycone. Prawie klarowne, świetny lacing.
