3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper colour with a slight haze. Hints of floral and citrusy hops along with toasty malt in the aroma. The strange yuzu taste of Horizon hops dominates the character of this beer, making it fruity and refreshing, but this hop character doesn’t really appeal to me personally. Fairly low bitterness for style. Good balance, just not to my taste.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copperish with a thin foamy/rocky white head. The nose has a ton of caramel but also a ton of pine resin and grapefruit rind zest. Smells a lot like weed too. Taste is nice and citrusy sweet at the start with a little piney/floral bitterness, leading into a chewy grainy caramalt tone. Finishes with a kiss of nutty toffee with, also, some grassiness.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Vino’s. Dark copper color, excellent lacing, no aroma, really. Head fades to an irregular frisbee. Not my favorite IPA, but a passable attempt. It’s one-trick pony, not very complex. The taste profile that is there, however, is pretty good! It goes just fine with the pizza!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in Little Rock. Pours a cloudy, golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy and creamy, light beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lighter with florals, lemongrass, a touch of pine, and a medium sweet caramel malt backing. Flavor is caramel with a light sweetness and a good amount of florals up front. Nice lemongrass in the middle with a touch of bread before a light pine comes in with a few resins as this dries pretty well with a moderate bitterness and light sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. The aroma was a bit light, but the flavor was better. Lightly sweetened, soft caramel maltiness with a good amount of florals and lemongrass hops. Not bad.

In my attempt to become the number 1 rater of Little Rock beers I have just ticked my 2nd brewery! So I’m sort of kidding here, but I have tried what maybe Little Rock’s only 2 breweries now, so that’s fun. As for this beer, it was actually a very solid IPA, I was a little surprised, I wasn’t expecting it to be this good.
