3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber with a small off-white head. Citrus hop aroma that has a hint of dustiness to it perhaps from fuggles in it, giving it an East coast flavor. Complex yet odd in many ways. There is some malt sweetness to offset the hops and also gives this some body. Finish is clean and fairly bitter making for a very nice example of the style with the 8% well hidden.
Taster on tap at the brewpub. Served from a small plastic cup. Orange sort of color. Good creamy off-white head. Leaves good, thicker full lace. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Caramel malt, nice spicy resiny hop. Some pine. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Moderate sweet. Solid IPA. Big malt to it, though.

From BVery’s growler, thanks for sharing. Some floral and herbal aromas, which is the best thing about this beer. Flavor is all over the place and no flavor particularly comes through. It is bitter but lacks hop flavor. Bacterial (2995) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pour from a growler - thanks Brian!! Nose is fruity and maybe a touch stale. Flavor is muddy, not very hoppy, lots of bitterness in the finish. Just blah. BVery (10485) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Growler. Slightly cloudy orange pour with not much of a head. Kind of a stale hop nose but the taste is slightly better - slightly fruity. Okay. jlogue3454 (1) - - JAN 7, 2014 does not count
Beer has very little to no aroma, appears bright amber/copper in the glass, taste leaves something to be desired and bitterness level is more along the lines of a pale ale than an IPA. Nice malty character, but too much body and malt sweetness for the style.

Tap at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is biscuit and honey malt, citrus, pine, and herbal hops with mango and papaya. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, supporting malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. Travlr (24633) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2013

Sample at the brewpub on 9/20/13. Clear amber pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma of caramel corn and grassy hops. Malty and grainy flavor with caramel and butter character before a grassy hop finish. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 15, 2013
Tap at Black Bear burrito joint in Morgantown, WV. Cloudy orange pour, weak head. Nose is dusty, moldy, some light vinegar and sweet orange candies. Taste is dusty, nutty, chalky, sharper C hop bitterness. Not much different from a stale SNPA.
