3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Trooper’s Alley IPA pours a medium copper with a small head of white bubbles that leaves a nice lace. Nose is spruce hops with a hint of citrus. Taste is crisp hop happiness with a nice tantalizing orange zest kiss. Body is fizzy but not overpoweringly so.

Bottle @ 3N tasting. Good, slightly hazy. Small head. Nose is a huge diacetyl bomb. Gross buttered popcorn. Similar flavor. Just unbearably buttery and unpleasant. Not worth further investigation.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz can pours a hazy gold with some creamy, white head. Nose is a bit messy, sort of muddled citrus peel, some herbs, some soap, a bit of malt. Flavor is the same, key lime, lemon, white grapefruit, soap. Grating finish. Dial the IBUs back and you might have something.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden color with an average head at best. Aroma is creamy, hops, pine, grapefruit, and for not having a high OG it has a slightly boozy warm finish. Taste is grapefruit, pineapple, pine, cream, honey, vanilla. Great mouthfeel and balance, moves from fruity and sweet at the beginning to bitter hops and pine in the middle, then finishes with a malty note to boot. Great beer, definitely my favorite from one of my local favorites.

Nose is big on fruits, meh head and just slightly cloudy copper look. Head a little thin. Huge hop flavor, got a lot of bitter aftertaste, but ends up on a sweet note. Good.

12 oz. can courtesy of AdamT. Hazy yellowish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, mangoes, and caramel. Very nice citrus and grassy hop taste with a strong malt backbone to balance. Bitterness is somewhat lingering but certainly not unpleasant. A nice surprise.

Can: nice buttery grapefruit nose. Amber in color. Taste resembles the nose. I like the hops and the buttery taste. It is unique. Worth seeking out.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can: Buttercream icing, pineapple, caramel nose. Cloudy amber, wisps if very fine particulate, thick yellow sticky head. Honeycomb, grapefruit flavor. Mediym body, alcohol noticeable. Awfully buttery in a fairly pleasant way, but I don’t it was intended. Nice combination of hops, albeit a bit muddled. Respectable.

12oz can from brewery courtesy of mom, thanks mom. Orange hue, murky clarity with mostly diminishing white fizzy head. Virtually no lacing. Strong citrus, light fruit, lemon, malt, cake batter. Light bitter citrus and funk up front with a short bland citrus finish. As it warmed the finish became more malty, which was pretty good. Oily texture, flat carbonation.
