3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy amber pour with a 1 finger, creamy off white head . Aroma is mostly earthy citrus and passion fruit right away, some sort of soapy, floral and fruity berry-like hops come in along with some biscuit, toast and bready notes, if I really get my nose in it. Flavor is earthy floral and passion fruit right away, followed by citrus zest, tart cherries, under ripe tangerines, and finishing with a sort of lemon curd- like sweet tart taste that would really be better with just a hint less bitterness backing it up. Medium body, fairly neutral entry, medium, sharp carbonation and dry finish. Good stuff overall, I can’t really say I am in love with the hop notes, although they are interesting, but it is definitely enjoyable. I guess the ratio of bitterness to hop taste and aroma seems a little low.

From a 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper with an ecru head. Grassy nose. Favors of grass with some feint citrus notes. Bitter finish.

12 oz bottle. Pretty balanced. Some citrus in there. Was expecting a bit more hop profile. Clean and drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to huskertan! Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with thin white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of tropical and stone fruit notes from the hops with a dried biscuit malt backbone. Tastes of fruity hop notes with a dry bitter finish. Something odd in there. Soft carbonation, thin mouth, not that exciting.

Kind of weird tasting. Bottled in July. Dank smelling and leaves a pretty astringent aftertaste. It’s not bad, just not what I was expecting. Tastes somewhat boozy.

Bottle courtesy fo HuskerTan, many thanks! Cloudy golden color, big fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Nice aroma of earthy tropical fruit. Taste is on the dank side, very fruity, lots of bitter citrus. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up in random Nebraska gas station as had not heard of the brewery. There were a couple of other similar-ish choices, but were dortmunders and tripels. Who distributes those types of styles to random gas stations from small local breweries? Yellow golden pour with a white head. Nicely hoppy nose, with some fruit presence. Taste is hoppy bitter, in a New Zealand hoppy way, with different flavors than typical. Lightly sweet. Lightly fruity. Not either too complex or too thick. 13.6

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, orange, slight grass into a bit of yeast, hints of slight biscuit, touch of pine. Taste was a mix of grass, bread, caramel, some slight yeast, hints of orange peel, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet, ok.

Just slightly better than average for me. Perhaps this is a bit old as it tastes somewhat oxidized. The color is very on key, and it has a cloudiness I'd expect from an traditional ipa. I am not saying I wouldn't drink again, but it wouldn't be my first choice.
