2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle. Mildly hazy amber color. Ridiculously large light khaki head. Stronger, soft carbonation impedes drinkability. Some decent lace. Toasty malts are forward here, but some fruity light earthy floral hops are also present. Tastes kind of English-style. Very dry, with a good bitterness. Kind of over-carbonated. Gets better after it’s been sitting for an hour, but that’s kind of a testament to how not great this beer was

Reviewed from notes.
Thanks to Ryan for the bottle.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance had a hazy orange to light ruddy yellowish brown color. There’s a light glossy white foamy lacing trying to stick but sliding for the most part.
The smell had a slight pine to citrus to grassiness trying to have a delicate grapefruit but really stays towards the pine.
The taste was bittersweet pine/sweet citrus with a misleading spice that I’m unsure where it came from because I didn’t get any of that in the smell.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but not as sharp as expected for the style. This one comes across smoother than expected.
Overall, mainly a good AIPA but almost doesn’t have enough sharpness in the palate/mouthfeel.

From a bottle fairly thick head. Cloudy yellow with a tinge of brown. Smell is medium ipa perfume. Taste is big bitter chewing on grapefruit rinds happy bullshit. Yes, bitter sides of tongue impact like so WTF. This should be in the imperial ipa style, wew. Fary off. Un impressed. chinchill (5073) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 5, 2013
on tap at Maumee Bay brewpub in Toledo.
This is a deep orangish-amber color. with a bone-colored head of moderate size and excellent duration. Overly bitter given the levels of hop-based aromatics and flavors. Hop component features earthy and piney notes.
Medium-light carbonation with a medium body.

Bottle: The aroma consists of light caramel and faint grapefruit. The aroma is rather light. It pours a hazy dark orange with a one finger off-white head that quickly fades to a thin soapy outlined by a soapy ring. The flavor starts with light-moderate caramel and a hint of fruit. The finish has mild grapefruit hops. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, it’s a pretty tame IPA that comes across more like an American Pale Ale.
