3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The body is light copper with a lightly off white head. The aroma was grapefruit with some caramel. The taste has some sweet bread crust with a toasted finish. There are hints of orange peel with the light body. Itís ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not bad, but a bit meh for an IPA. Orangish gold with a thick off-white head. Light hop aroma and taste, more of an amber than an IPA, really. Flavor is subtle hops over malt. Nothing remarkable, but not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured into a shaker - Pours golden amber, slight orangy red. Large head for an IPA - but disipates quickly... Strong hoppy aroma. Flavor is like most IPAs of hops. Flavor is hoppy as well with a taste of alcohol. Nice Beer, I honestly didnít expect it to be as good as it is. Will have again - not sure why the others rated this low... make sure to check the expiration date before buying... Mine expires in a month.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle...very one-dimensional brew, and not a good example of an IPA. A honey-like sweetness predominates with the smell and taste of sour apples. Light head. Alcohol, though 6.5%, is not noticeable. Some bitterness on the finish. I canít wait to finish this six-pack because I do not want it to take up any more space in the beer fridge.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fairly light hop nose...mild pine and citrus. The pour is attractive enough...coppery gold with a moderate and quickly fading head. The flavors are pretty muted for the style...light pine and grapefruit, caramel and toffee...but all very subdued. Iíd like to see a much bolder step taken in this direction by this brewery!

(12oz bottle, thanks Peregrinari) Small beige head atop clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, juicy orange/grapefruit, light pineapple. Taste is medium sweet, orange, some grapefruit, bread, earthy. Light-medium body, some stickiness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I found this beer good but not particularly original. The aroma was citrus with mild caramel and hops. The appearance is really nice with a bit of cloudiness and a nice orange light brown amber color. The flavor is a bit sticky but is citrus and hops with caramel and pine. Finish is fairly smooth but drying and sticky at the same time (donít ask me, that is what I experienced). I would drink this beer again. Not bad but not spectacular or original.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear vibrant copper color with smallish head and no lacing. Mildly hoppy aroma. This one was pretty well balanced with a lot of toasty bready malts, moderate sweetness and some citrus and some earthy style hops. Not overly exciting, but not terrible.

Pours a clear copper with a good, lasting yellowed head. The aroma is a bit leafy. Peppery, good malt backbone. Very nice easy-drinking IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle - Pours clear amber/orange with a one finger white head. The aroma is of citrus hops and caramel malt. The flavor is a solid balance of these hops and malts that isnít terribly interesting, but itís good. This beer is medium bodied and has the characteristic long, bitter IPA finish.
