2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer is the definition of a typical obligatory IPA. Aroma was average. Light hoppiness, with citrus and notes of pine. Pour was a light orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was pretty boring. The grainy sweet malt backbone is balanced by lemon, grass and grapefruit hops. Neither flavor is very strong or full. The beer would be a good introduction to IPAs for a BMC drinker. Medium carbonation round the beer out. Slightly sweet finish.
Pretty amber to copper color. Nice rich taste with a bit of apricot ?? Can't quite place it. Middle good

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2017 0,3 litre Bottle from Total Wine Henderson. Cloudy Golden with medium white head. Malty, bready aroma and taste. Cakes (498) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2017
Twelve ounce bottle. Dry and malty, a little tangy. The bitterness stops before it gets too heavy. A handsome beer, but better looking than tasting. The scores here are fair. So glad it didn't get a 90 so I am not scratching my head. ryanscourt (1567) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2017
malty for an IPA; different from traditional west coast style IPAs that are all over the market gripweed57 (2967) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2017

Bottle from Total Wine, South Richmond. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malt, minor coffee, minor citrus. Flavor is bland malt, minor coffee, almost no citrusy hops. Very bland, boring, and more a pale ale than anything. Tmoney99 (15119) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2017
