3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fair IPA, but rough around the edges. Not balanced in the malt dept, for sure.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An overwhelmingly hoppy IPA, but it lacks balance as the finish comes through a little strong due to a lack of any strong malt flavor. Great for hopheads though, as the hops are there in a big way.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A lighter IPA. Nice amber brown color, fruity-hoppy nose, pleasant sweet taste. A notch below Red Hook IPA.

Striking clarity, wonderfully enticing nose that oozes with grapefruit. A subtle malt undertone struggles to keep pace with this hop fest. Bitterness and citrus of hops are prevalent from start to finish. Very good afternoon refresher.

a refreshing beer for once in a while. Not a great IPA at all. light in hoppy and malty flavor, a bit of a floral aroma.

Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: Decent hops, though not very complex. OK finish - nothing to write home about.

Fruity hoppy aroma. Very fruity bittersweet taste with slight alcohol twang. Tasty beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2003 The beer pours a cloudless somewhat deep golden amber color, the head unboastful, the texture creamy, the lace that remains is a fine sheet to conceal the glass. A perfect light floral tone appears first, followed by sweet malt and fresh aroma, quite a nose pleaser. The start is malt, sweet on the sides of the tongue; top is retiring in its mouth feel. Hops are spicy and lightly biting with the acidity temperate, aftertaste long lasting and hop bitter. A nice representative IPA, a gentler IPA, midway between the English and California IPA’s, like Stone and Alesmith.
