3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler at the brewery. Pours a dark clear amber with a one finger off-white head. The nose is caramel malt, floral hops and light grapefruit. The taste is caramel malt, ripe citrus, light peppery spice and a nice resin finish that lingers for a bit. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Nice serviceable IPA. I didn’t detect any diacetyl and was there the night before the rater below so not sure what he’s talking about. Great place to visit and the people and beer are top-notch.
Can. Pours lightly hazed gold with a white head. Light fruity hops, a little grassy, light spicy hops, mild sweet malts, and moderate bitterness. Pretty good. ABUSEDGOAT (2759) - California, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Hazy amber, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is spicy rye, grapefruit, citrus, caramel. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, easy to drink but forgettable. DenverLogan (1213) - LA, California, USA - APR 26, 2016
On tap at the brewery April 3rd. As a rye IPA it fit in that flavor category with a touch more citrus that expected, but no problems. I’d happily take a growler home. Art (3217) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Can shared by Dan. Pours a fairly clear copper orange with a white head. Aromas of orange and pine. Candied orange peel. Taste is mild bitterness. Nuffield (4171) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2016
I was really struck by how fruity this beer was, and how sweet, too. The flavor has a lot of non-citrus fruits (peach, e.g.) and the bitterness was quite low. Still well balanced and easy drinking, it paired well with my food (a mushroom risotto). Very good. (on tap at Tutti Mangia, Claremont, CA)
