3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well well well.....on tap at the local steak house. Served in an NON icy glass...the world must be ending. medium piney nose. Hop bite is flower in body and soft. A lovely deep amber in the glass. A solid IPA which is neither in your face with hops or a watery excuse for an IPA. I had two. Alcohol sneaks up on you in the parking lot.

Pours pale orange with a fluffy white head that lasts. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is sweet hops but relatively bitter bite to them. Well balanced with malts as well. Solid ipa.

Pours a clear straw color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops, caramel, and some light pine hops too. Flavor of very strong citrus hops with a nice amount of caramel malt balancing the hops. Quite refreshing.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The hazy amber body, and the relatively small, but durable, head gave this beer an attractive look. The smell was mostly citric hops with some overtones of hay. The taste had a crisp bitterness from the generous levels of hops, and the malt was biscuit like and light. The finish was citric and slightly spicy. If there was anything to dislike about this beer, it was the slightly metallic aftertaste. The body was medium thick,and allowed the hops to coat the tongue. This was well put together IPA for me.

12 oz. bottle at Public House at the Venetian, served in a tulip. Pours a clear orange-gold with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malts, grassy hops, mild citrus- not much here but clean and solid. Flavor of grassy hops, sweet malts, light herbs, vanilla, and resin. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a resinous, malty mouthfeel. Decent IPA, teetering on DIPA status.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very strong pine in aroma. The flavor is grapefruit/citrus hops and very pungent, that although with a malty backbone, heavily influences the flavor and into the finish. Although the pungency was strong, it was still a pretty good IPA

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle shared with multiple others in a tasting at a local. Pours a thin off white head, over a clear light copper (SRM 15) body.....nose is light pine, citrus, mango, toffee/caramel....taste is pine, light toffee/caramel, melon, with lingering grapefruit finish....mouth feel medium, carbonation low. This is without a doubt an IPA. This does not have the sharper hop influence of many American IPA’s. It is more lushly fruity with rounded edges in both nose and palate. IPA’s are evolving as new ingredients become available and I need to decide about those changes and whether I like them or not. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6
