2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can poured into a pint glass at The Beer Trappe in Lexington, KY. Ordered because it was local. Visually appealing but the smell really tells the story. A poor effort at an IPA...something the common man could easily brew. Hard to put my finger on where it goes wrong but falls short on the front and end. It’s one of those ales that locals probably overrate like a crappy band people support because they’re one of us. (ahem, Polica)

12oz can at Keystone, really a surprisingly delicious IPA, I’m having a hard time finding exactly what hops are used, I’m thinking they’re either columbus or magnums... not as bright an IPA as your 2 hearteds or citra based ones, no garlic for amarillo but really just a solid IPA served in a cool can. easy to drink great to savor.. pairs well with food. well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from trade. Thanks! Pours into my tulip a hazy dark orange with a nice fluffy one finger head. Good lacing. Big time pine grapefruit aroma, smells juicy. Flavor follows exactly with massive juicy grapefruit on the palate and a nice bitter. Some dry grass and pine with a lingering earthiness. Medium slick mouthfeel and definite malt presence. Medium carbonation. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft and can. Cloudy gold/orange body. Frothy, white head, most lasting. Aroma of citrus, toasted grain, grapefruit, orange peel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Good balance of orange sweetness and bitter hops. On the sweet side for an IPA and chewier. But it works.

Can via the generosity of drfabulous
Pours a bright orange with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is herbaceous and hoppy with some citrus notes and some nice dusty malt character.
The flavor is nicely bitter with some good citrus rind and grassy hops. The malt is a little chewy and borders on sweet but it’s pretty well controlled all together.
