3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours a clear golden orange with a white head. A really weird aroma. Quite floral with a little bit of grass and pine. Slightly sweet malt aroma, mostly bread. The flavor is moderately sweet without a ton of hop flavor either. It’s mostly grass and line with a touch of floral hops and citrus peel. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is quite mild, with light citrus, along with some bready / grainy notes. Flavour of grassy, citrusy hops, with some bready, grainy and earthy tones integrated nicely with just enough malt balance. Fairly standard, unspectacular, though well-crafted IPA.

Sampled from bottle @ ChrisO’s after GBBF Day 1. Clear light orange-golden color, medium sized white to off-white head. Aroma is malts, again a bit old hops, hops, old a bit stale fruityness. Tastes about the same: malts, old hops, a bit stale fruityness, bitter. Decent body, medium carbonation. Decent but fresh it could and should be much better.

Pours light amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops. Med body. Flavor is light, light caramel with an odd hop flavor - floral and some sort of herbal thing. Maybe also citrus. Not harsh - a bit different, but quite good.
