2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow with a big rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is mild spicy and grassy hops with some sweet slightly vegetal malts.
The flavor is some sweet malts with a earthy, grassy hop finish that has some decent bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some sharp carbonation.
Overall, a pretty average IPA. I didnít really care for the flavor profile. I prefer brighter fruitier hops.

An ok IPA, it has that classic IPA taste. However, it has a light body and a simple taste, but a rather bitter finish.

A: golden with a finger of white soap suds. These fall to a broken sheet of the same. Spotty lace and brilliant clarity. (4)
S: Almost a helles like malt profile with sweet wisps of vanilla. Grassy and piny hops over the top. Substandard for nose on an IPA (2)
T: Malt is forward and again, a bit sweet. The hops are bitter and grassy with some hints of resin. Simple. (3)
M: Thin with hi carb and wet finish. (3)
O: A middle of the road IPA. I like to drink it when Iím poor; at $2.50/bomber, itís hard to pass up. (3)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 Appearance was clear gold with diminishing creamy white 1/2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are citrus fruits and slight pale, crystal malts, no alcohol. Taste was mild sweet backbone, tangerine, orange, grapefruit and pine with soft yeasts. Palate was soft smooth tight CO2 with medium body, then soft fruity lasting bitterness. A good mild English style IPA.

pours hazy gold with a thickish off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is slightly floral and sweet, indescript candy. Taste is crisp and bright. Not particularly bitter or super hoppy, but pleasant. Nice notes of the hops on the finish and nasal linger. A clean, enjoyable brew!

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Btl pours hazy golden color. Nice thick head that hangs around for a while leaving good lace on glass. Faint sweet malt smell with intense tangerine and grapefruit aroma. Lightly sweet malty taste with fresh,crisp,citrusy hop flavor.Light body, thin texture with soft carbonation and mild bitterness. Not quite as balanced as I would like. Decent IPA, but lacks depth in body and in your face hop flavor.
