3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from City Beer. Pours cloudy amber with a nice beige head and a citrus, toffee and celery aroma. There is a tasty caramel malt flavor with a friuty finish. The hopping is quite unusual in that the flavor is more fruity than bitter. A nice brew.

Bottle. Honestly the aroma was amazing, but the flavor let me down a little. Too malty in my mind, but I did just finish the Fresh Hopwired. Still a solid IPA and one I will have to try again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden-amber body. Moderate sized white head. Solid lacing. Citric, grassy, and floral hops dominate both the flavor and nose. Soft pale malts also make themselves known. Medium bodied. Perhaps a bit undercarbonated with a silky soft feel. Light bitterness in the finish. Solid, but unremarkable IPA.
