3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottled purchased as part of the 8 bottle mixed pack at Gomer’s on State Line in Kansas City, Missouri. The beers opens with a pop. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a billowy three inch snow white head. Head takes a long time to fall. The aroma is faint grass with tangerine citrus with cracker malt. The taste is a mix of the citrus peel from the nose, and a not entirely clean mineral earth and the cracker malt in the back. The hop flavors are faint and flat, not sure on age of this one - the bottle says date is stamped on the neck, though I didn’t see any visible date markings. The palate is light to medium bodied with spritz carbonation and a dry mostly clean finish.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle, citrus and hop nose, but overflowing carbonation. Taste of carbonic acid and not much else. Hope this was just a batch as it is way over carbonated.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
More of a lager in appearance than an IPA. Light hints of citrus, more of sprouted grains. Flavored is light and refreshing with a hoppy end. Palate is mixed with lager and IPA, acidic but smooth. Will try again.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, citrus, bready. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy, yellow/amber with a small white head.
Butterscotch, grain scent.
Taste is malty, sweet and buttery, ending with a very light citrus-peel bitter.
Not bad, just a little outside the norm for the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Caramel/light butterscotch and barley malt aroma. Pale yellow with small head. Sweet light butterscotch malt and light orange peel flavor. Good but not a typical SIPA - not sure if my glass was from an older keg.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a cloudy orange with a huge white head. Aroma is a moderate amount of citrus hops after the head dies down. Flavor is again a ok hop presence with some grainy malt and a thin mouthfeel. Finish is a bit watery but the hops stay around for a while. Ok I guess. It’s a session alright as things are a bit too light all around.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery, pours an unclear amber orange with a nice white head and lacing in the glass, the aroma has a decent amount of hops and citrus on the nose, a little bit of fruit as well, the flavor has a slight hop front end with a smooth finish, for 4% it’s pretty nice but it doesn’t have the overall punch of a normal IPA, good for what it is.
