3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014
Location: Draft at Blind Tiger, 3/26/14
Aroma: The nose is British hops, some grass, floral and herbal notes, and some spice
Appearance: It pours a hazy orange color with a small off-white head and light lace
Flavor: Similar flavor, with herbal and spice hops mostly, fairly minimal sweetness
Palate: This one has a medium body, a tingly feel, lively carbonation, and a dry finish
Thought this was a decent example of a British style IPA. It isn’t a great one, but it is a plenty drinkable beer.

A lightly hazed golden ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, crisp biscuit malt with grassy British hops. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with grassy hops, very British, decent.

growler into a vijf duvel glass. 7.2 says the brewery people, and an iced version says the brewer. This is nicely hopped, solo style, dirty grass, soil, dank weed, and malicous hop stir around casually. Color is neon orange at times, yellowish, and hazy tan. Head is small but surfacing. Brew holds its own directly, with subtle variations among hop and malt balacne, but this is quite intriguing as the singularity brings forth still, an extremly quaffable brew. Totally kills the shipyard single hop ipa. A nice endeavor towards the style, this one is great.

Draft. I'm a loser rating this beer in front of a beautiful girl. Here we go. Bronze , nice lace smell is faint for an iPa. Same goes for taste. Pretty sessionable

Bottle from one of the awesome Wandering Star guys whose name I can’t fathom at the moment, at the Blind Tiger after Andy had left and I was chatting with Cuzme. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head. Candied mango and dried fruits. Soft caramel and toffee. Sweet and musky. More candied fruits. Long dry bitterness, dried fruit, candied mango, soft grapefruit bitterness. Lovely and super sessionable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at UES Pony with puzzl. Pours a murky amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is muted, bitter hop and very light musk. Mouthfeel is super bitter but very one dimensional before the malt hits. I don’t get any Nelson out of this which is a shame. Light sweet caramel in the finish.
