3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: very nice deep amber color, pours with a very large and dense light tan head, pretty clear
Aroma: spicy, strong caramel malt, grass, hints of chocolate even,
Taste: bitter upfront, has a strong malt backbone to it as well, hints of alcohol, picking up the subtle chocolate again,
Palate: soft carbonation, medium to heavier mouthfeel, light bitter aftertaste
Overall: I’m pleasantly surprised by this beer, very well balanced, has nice aroma, maltiness, bitterness, and even head

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Herbal/floral, citrus/peachy fruity hops aroma. Tangerine/grapefruit and floral hop flavor. Light malt flavor: Bread crust, caramel, sweet. Substantial bittier aftertaste. Not super hoppy--but good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another mild beer from Upslope. It appears that the specialize in producing beers with a slightly higher amount of alcohol and they cover it up using a variety of different ingredients. The dominant ingredient takes the beer name. Alcohol covered with hops. Not too much hops though.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a mostly clear classic golden color with a short, white head. Flat lager aroma with not much expression of a hop character. Medium bodied and somewhat crisp. A wheaty flavor comes through first, with some bitter hop following. That flat lager is unfortunately pervasive.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can: The aroma consists of moderate caramel and toffee with lighter fruit and a touch of floral hops. It pours a transparent amber with a large orange tinted off-white head that has great retention and leaves behind a lot of soapy lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a lot of caramel and toffee along with some light fruit. The finish floral hops, a touch of cardboard, and mint. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is not at all that I want in an IPA and it’s not very good even on the hedonistic scale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’m not sure why everybody is so hard on this beer. Its really not that bad. A simple foamy head. Golden hue. The hops are present but not overpowering. A fresh clean beer without the tin wash down. Not gonna rock your world but not bad if you hide a few in the tackle box for fishing. A minimal yes to this beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours reddish orange and slightly hazy. Smell is subdued with typical hop aromas of nondescript floral and fruity notes. Nice but subtle. Taste is more malt driven than most IPAs by quite a bit. Very light bitterness and more malty than I’d like. Kind of a grainy cereal honey sweetness that peeks through. Like a pale ale with higher alcohol.
