3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Barcade. Not quite as pale as I would like. Good, though. Perhaps I wasn’t expecting such hop/malt balance and it threw me off. I’ll need to try this brew again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer. Pours clear copper with a creamy beige head. Hoppy aroma - citrus and stone fruit? Med body at least. Flavor is hoppy - citrus/light stone fruit/tea? It’s towards dry and decently bitter. The (to me) complex hop flavor is tasty and intriguing. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
KSBF. I believe they were pouring this out of 750ml bottles. Poured a medium to deeper golden / amber color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of fresh hops - pine & grass with some caramel. Tastes of lighter hops (didn’t have that fresh, green hoppiness) - grass and pine with caramel. Lighter bitter finish.

Tap at Victory. Big carbonation on a clear amber. Modest, beige head. Big sheets of lace. Feels like IPA in nose and body. Sticky, resinous hop nose. Nutty hoppiness in the body, sappy, pine. Very east coast IPA in profile. Good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orangy coppery pour with medium head. Malty aroma with a hoppy floral and fruity smell. This one reminds me a lot of the Manayunk wet hopped brew, with the caramel malty flavor backed up by an earthy, sort of fruity yet peaty hop, as such. Complex and well balanced, I had several pints of this.
