2.94/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: a darkish orange color. good clarity and a small tannish head that doesn't stick around

Smell: very fruity and pleasant. good rounded hop presence

Taste: starts off slightly like the nose but quickly turns south. all i can taste less than half way through is dull hops. no fruit no anything except a hop bite.

Mouthfeel: extremely biting. which i wouldn't mind had it had some flavor to it. very hard to finish a whole one

Overall: the smell is almost wonderful the taste is almost on the opposite side of the spectrum

Enjoyed at Beef O'Brady's in Newburgh, IN.

Poured into Bell's pint glass a cloudy amber. Thick ornate lace.

Smell delicious tropical hops. Delicious!

Taste is actually very malty, with touch of light citrus hops. The orange peel is subtle and doesnt make itself known. Like the regular Atwater ipa, this one is more in line with a pale ale.

Not altogether awful, but this one promised more than it delivered. Not one I'd pursue again.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a copper/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, some resin. Taste is hoppy, a bit of pine, bitter, some light malts, not really getting any of the orange peel. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but I expected better.
