3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours unclear light golden with a small creamy white head, reviving and leaving nice lacing. piney and minty-floral citrus, melons, powdery candies, faint fruitiness - clementines and peaches; spicy and slightly biscuity-doughy maltiness - touch of toasted caramel, some spices - dill, bit of earthy notes. light carbonation, light to medium body - oily; balanced grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. nicely done - though an average ipa.

Orangish brown, with white head. Aromo is oranges and more oranges. Taste is even more orange with grapefruit peel. unexpected delight!

It is what it is. Solid if somewhat plain traditional American IPA. Nicely grassy and such.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can (12 oz) bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse.
Appearance: Clear golden with a medium white head and some lacing.
Aroma: Floral hops and biscuity malts along resinous notes and mild herbal presence.
Taste: Floral, light sweetness. decent malt backbone, biscuit notes and light bitterness.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Moderately dry finish. Floral aftertaste that doesn’t last very long.
Overall: Decent clean IPA that was easily drinkable, but that will be as easy to forget. Good balance, but nothing really stands out.

Pours golden-orange with an off-white head. Aroma is pine, orangey citrus, toast, a bit of pineapple, and some tropical fruit and peach as it opens up. Taste is mandarin, grapefruit, pineapple, leafy, toast, marmalade, caramel, and light-med bitterness. Medium body, finishes fairly dry. Nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Can) Lots of fresh hop aroma. One of my favorite IPAs, at least for Summer drinking. It’s not too overly-bitter and has some nice sweetness that works well with the hops. Tastes fresh and grassy but in a good way.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a subdued west-coast IPA. It is plenty floral and hoppy, but not overly aggressive as many have come to expect from this style. It is enjoyable.
