Draft at Milkboy. Cloudy orange amber pour. Started with a large foamy head but it rather quickly reduced to a thin ring. No lace. Fuzzy oranges. Medium amber fruit. Cantaloupe. Light toast. Blood orange juice. Gently sweet in the middle. Dry lightly spicy finish. Fuller and smoother than most. Nicely constructed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample: STILL have some notes from the 2011 Midwest Brewers Fest. A little darker and cloudier than the Uinta WYLD I just had. Thin, clingy head of foam. Smell shows some good Cascades, a little citrus and pine. Good citrusy hop taste to it too. Caramel malts and crystal involved in sending it down very nicely. A lot more hop in the backstop.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can from Three Cellars. Pours a yellow-orange with some off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma is a muddled combination of citrus and caramel with some spiciness and floral hops. Taste has very bitter grapefruit rind, lemon, some resin and then carries through with some sweet caramel maltiness back. The distinctness of the very bitter "scrape off your teeth and palate" and then the caramel and sweet also, does not seem to blend well. Finishes very bitter, yet with sweet hints, and lasts a long bitter time. Perhaps this needs to age to mellow the sharpness of the bitter hops - not something I would have ever recommended in an IPA ...
