3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler filled at the Allentown Brew Works. Pours a clear golden amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted until mid-glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt along with some resinous pine and grapefruit. The flavor is malt up front followed by a wash of pine and grapefruit that is both fruit and pith. Moderate-strong bitterness at the finish lingers for about thirty seconds beyond the swallow. Alcohol is well hidden. Very solid.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppy, amber, and fairly strong. Not bad, with hints of fruit and a balanced flavor for an IPA. The strength is there, but doesn’t knock you on your butt.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at Capones. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Sweet and malty body (hardly the explosion) with some light pine like accents. Malty with paper (oxidation notes...) hardly hoppy some light earth tones but that might be more dryness from the crystal malt. I dunno what to say, this is ON DRAFT, WTF! Update, looks like i am not alone).
