3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Springfield VA Yard House location. Light, fruity notes. Crisp, more like a kolsch than an IPA, but not terrible. Light lemony zest notes on the finish.

On tap at Yard House Houston. Pours a clear earthy orange with a near white head that lasts and laces nicely. Aroma has light fruits with a bit of citrus and light grains underlying. Flavor has more of a citrus and pine combination backed by sweet grains.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Atlanta, Ga. - Atlantic Station Yard House - on tap. Medium golden pour, silky snow white head, luxurious lacing. Light piney aroma (tired of saying spruce). Solid IPA standard flavor - bitter citrus, caramel sweetness - you know the drill. Decently thick mouthfeel. Good companian to my Baja fish tacos.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
9oz shorty on tap at Yard House Cincinnati. Mostly clear amber orange color. Good thin white head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Pretty nice, bigger hop aroma up front... Bigger than expected. Nice floral and orange citrus notes. Light caramel / bready malt. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick finish. Good longer hop finish. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet, light zest. Solid, aromatic IPA. Flavorful for the ABV. Better than expected.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy spruce hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This a good brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the horrible, horrible Yard House in Cincinnati. Served in a pint glass by a total asshole. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Notes of pine, citrus, pale and sweet malts, some resin, faint toast. There’s a note in the flavor that I can only call ’wet dog,’ if I were to come up with the closest smell approximation. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a damp, earthy mouthfeel. A little off, but even without the off note, this probably is just a so-so IPA.
