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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Tried this beer on my trip to Omaha in 2015. Fresh and crisp. A nice citrus and grass aroma with quite a bit of bitterness.

From a Nebraska brewery, and I like the attempt at differentiating the type of IPA.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A- Berries, citrus, wheat.
A- Orange color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Citrus, berries, hops, wheat.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp finish.
O- Not a bad beer but certainly not great. The flavors are pretty mundane and don’t blend well. No bitterness up front or anything for that matter than then some bitterness on the finish. I thought I’d love this one and it was average at very best.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ brewery. Minimal hops aroma ... I was really surprised I couldn’t smell much in this one at all, because the flavor was there. Hazy amber with a large off-white head. Earthy cheesy hops, citrus, and biscuity malt flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. This one was surprising/confusing for me. I’m familiar with the flavor of NZ hops, and I wasn’t really getting any of the usual tropical flavors associated with NZ.

Pours a hazy orange with white head. Light fruits mainly on the nose, just a hint of wood as well; follows onto the palate. Finishes with malt notes.

Bottle poured a hazy orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, yeast, grapefruit and light blackberry. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness, citrus and a hint of blackberry with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Moderate IPA, lots of malt balance, nice bitterness that is not overpowering. A good choice if not looking for something too powerful.
