I had this on tap at The Turoni's on Main Street.

A: It poured a really pretty, dark amber color, with a slight haze, and about a half finger spider we'd-esque head.

S: not much at all.... Maybe a puff of yeast and candy sugar.

T: This really had an off flavor. It was so much on the malt side of the spectrum that it was almost a Scottish Ale. I got a tinge of bitterness on the end and more than a hint of sugar. Yikes!

M: The aftertaste was straight up stale mallowcreme. This was pretty thick and syrupy, but had respectable carbonation. The lacing was mildly splotchy.

O: This was almost a drain pour, but I manged to stick it out.

A-It's a dark copper brown color. Nice bubbly head. pretty nice.

S-Smells like a lighter hopped ipa to me. Caramel malty roasted malt profile in the sniff.

T- Tastes like a very balanced Ipa. The caramel malts balance out the floral hops. I like Ipa's like this, but many people probably do not.

M-Light to medium bodied.

O- It's not bad, not bad at all. The blue moose is a good choice at Turonis. Keep an eye out for the tv ads

A: Dark amber color with a half finger head.

S: Has a woody pine and cotton candy smell. Carnival in the woods.

T: The FIRST IPA I can say is drinkable that I've had. The citrus and pine notes come out well but don't overpower the malty goodness. A great beer to enjoy on a hot summer day.

M: light, and carbonated just perfectly.

O: I am glad I finally had this. It is a great Session IPA. I do not recommend it for the crazy hop heads, but for someone just getting into IPA's, this is a great beer to have first.

Pours orange into the glass with no head. Very clear.

Smells like flowers, actually kind of pleasant.

Has a flowery, hoppy flavor. Feels more like a pale ale instead of an IPA.

Bitterness is there but only slightly. Even in the finish it's pretty tame.

Very drinkable due to no hop bite.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong citrus hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and hint of yeast. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, slight floral hops, sweet malt, slight grain, and hint of pale malt. Overall, good body and blend. This was served in a very chilled glass that hurt the aroma. As it warmed, the mouth feel and the body complexity vastly improved.

Pours a nice deep copper color with some nice head and nice lacing. Very nice scent, a nice citrusy hoppy aroma with a good malt background. Good taste, a very nice bitter flavor, mostly citrus with a bit of floral; has an excellent malt backbone. Goes down very well, a very nice IPA.
