3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to large sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated golden brown colored body and a very good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and floral. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of cascade hops and mild caramel. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine & More (Ft. Myers, FL).Small ivory head with poor retention span, transparent body, fast rising carbonation, fair amount of lacing, and an orange copper hue. The aroma was floral, earthy, malty, and hops. The flavor was bitter, hoppy, some caramel, citrus, and malty. Tingly mouthfeel and a medium bodied IPA. An easy to drink IPA because this is not very hoppy given the style. It lacks hoppiness IMO.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A fairly decent flowery aroma, and a nice hop flavor to it, but there just was not very much going on here. I would say it is an average IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a transparent copper orange with a well-lacing froth of off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty pale malts and some earthy grapefruity hops. Body starts with decent fullness and some mild sweet caramel maltiness balanced with a drier, musty hop presence before a bittersweet finish. An ok IPA, but could use a more assertive and crisp hop profile.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light amber gold with a one finger creamy eggshell head. The aroma isnt so bad. Some grassy earthy hop aroma, sweet, malty, not too complex or pungent. The flavor is ok, kind of one dimensional, bitter, fades to a mild astringency, some hop flavor and malt character.
