3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep yellow color with a very small, dense white head. Aroma has a mild grassy presence with some light orange citrus and a modest grainy malt presence. Flavor is good but there is a bit of a skunk to it my opinion. Malt is a bit more of a presence than you typically see in an IPA. Body is light and pretty fizzy with some light dryness and a great lacing left on the glass. Overall a decent brew and I understand where the brewer was going. Not a lot of weakness but lacks some of the "umph" to make it an IPA and less of a Pale Ale.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head that disappears quickly and leaves little to no lace. The aroma is underwhelming as is the aroma, hopping is faint, definintely not what Iím looking for in an IPA. Mouthfeel is nice and carbonation isnít too prickly. Wont be revisiting this beer again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden amber colour with big initial white head that quickly dissolves into a a light ring around the glass and leaves a little lace up the sides. Aromas of grass, mild citrus, and some british caramel malt. Flavour consists of a moderate bitterness, faint british malts coming through with a touch of biscuit but overall a bit thin on the malts for an english ipa. Though must give props for the 6abv and doing a quite session-able beer out of the norm.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden with a nice frothy white hat. Aroma of some citrus but really grassy & malty. Smells of the fuggle variety. Taste is a little something else surprised that itís six percent as itís really thin and could benefit from more hops and a bigger malt profile. Taste is light malts with some bitterness on the finish. Entry Level ipa.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at The Gold Pan Saloon. Pours a clear golden-orange with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Mild aroma is slightly vegetal, I get peas, along with light hops, pale malt and some fruit. Flavour is a bit sweet and fruity along with pale malt, light hops and caramel. Average to medium bodied. I didnít know the style when I had it but Iíd have guessed an American style Lager, its not hoppy enough for me or the style.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at the GCBF. Lightly hued, mild mark on the glass. Aroma of berries and caramel. Flavour is mild bitterness with a very strong dry malt way back there, which becomes all the more apparent when you hold your nose. Finish is a tad bit sour, meaning mildly off.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from trade with fiulijn. A small, off-white head sits on top of a more or less clear, golden body. The aroma is lightly citrusy, lightly malty, and rather pleasant, although a bit weak. Fruity, citrusy flavor with some peach hints. Pale malts as a foundation, and thereís also something lightly spicy going on. Decent bitterness, both initially and in the end. Medium to full body, pleasant carbonation. Not really my idea of an IPA, but itís a decent and quaffable beer anyway. 111229
