1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
The only thing memorable for me about this beer that warrants a comment is the giant head that poured with every bottle. For me it literally took up half the glass; not an appealing characteristic for me.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Overwhelming pine aroma. Bitter, citrusy flavor. Like everything Ive had from this brewery, light and easy to drink. Toes the line between a regular pale and IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark orangey body with a thin, off-white head.
Smell: Toasted pale maltiness with a citrusy, earthy hop aroma.
Taste: Toasty pale malts with a light caramel sweetness and a touch of buttery diacetyl. Citrusy hops with a taste of grapefruit and a medium bitterness clear things away and leave you with a dry, lightly bitter, lightly toasty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: While not altogether horrendous, it’s by no means a great India Pale Ale.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a light orange red color, very low in carbonation. Extremely light lacing. Smells nicely of heavy piney malts. First taste is all hops with some malty tones present. Mouthfeel is weak as there is a lack of carbonation. This puppy could use a stronger malt backbone. Not too bad, not to good either.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled and brewed at Shipyard. This is not the same as the draught only version available at the inn. Pours copper with a thin white head. Has that signature Shipyard bland and boring yeast signature that overwhelms what is an otherwise a great beer. Some stray hoppy citrussy elements are also present, but not nearly as defined as the draught version. Tastes citrussy with an annoying pride of rignworm infested undertone. It amazes me anyone contract brews though Shipyard.
