2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured a clear tarnished copper with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and fruittiness. Palate was medium boidied and smooth with a lightly dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and light pine with a smooth dry moderatly bitter finish. More of a pale ale in my opinion, try again Abita.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2008 Cask at Barcade. Deep orange beer, cloudy/hazy. Aroma is loaded with rich orange/tangerine over a soft bready maltiness. Flavour is very hoppy and rich but not all that bitter. Soft pine and grapefruit. Balanced and quite tasty. Very delicious... just what the doctor ordered.
12 oz bottle. Deep amber beer, off-white head. Very cloudy. Aroma is quite lovely, sweet orange peel, grapefruit and a nice soft caramelly malt base. Flavour is well-balanced with a light lingering breadiness on the back. Moderate bitterness and a lingering piny finish. Nice beer, especially from these guys.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with a small, foamy, white head that fades over a hazy, penny colored body. Aroma of light citrus hops,tangy orange, caramel, soggy malts and pine nuts. Taste is a bit bitter, without any good flavor hops. Caramel and watery. Not complex or interesting. Just a brewer going through the motions. Dry and fizzy.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle from total wine. Orange color wtih an off white head. Aroma is sweet and sticky for an IPA. Taste is watery, too sweet and too malty. This one would be so much better with some more hops. This one is overrated IMO.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent bright copper with a large airy, spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasted malt and some piny resinous hops. Body starts lightly sweet and toasty malty with some fairly fresh piny bittering and flavor hops before a crisp, drier finish. Hops arenít quite as assertive as I like in an IPA, but this oneís quite drinkable and smooth.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 24, 2008 IPA rating #300. Has a billowy off-white head that stacks up about an inch on this beer. "Very attractive" you should say with a squawk. Nose of birch and juniper scented citrus hops, with a lighter presence of ginger-pine hops. A strange smell for sure. Wet, moderately thick, lush up front, with a flavor that pauses for a second before developing into a strange ginger, pine sap and juniper berry flavor. Part of me finds it unappetizing and part of me likes it, so I donít know what to think.
