4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2014 22oz bomber. Murky orange to copper color with very thin white head. Rich sweet caramel malty aroma with some light pine hops. Taste as it smells. Caramel malts, some earthiness, some wet hops and pine hop bitterness. Maybe what I’m tasting is hop flavor since the bitterness is on the light side.
Finally trying a fresh bottel of this. Thank you Alesmith for putting dates on the bottle. This fresh bottle is just yummy with crisp tangerine, dank spicy onion, some shallot and light floral hops around the edges. This has plenty of crisp fresh hoppiness that is both snappy and bitter and flavor as well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Odeed for the great bonus brew. Hazy golden orange color with large white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is mixture of citrus and floral hops. Flavor is citrusy with a minty pine kick. Could have been a bit fuller bodied and the alcohol presence is a little much.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky orange with a dirty white head that lasts forever. Good lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is citrus orange and lemon with tons of floral notes. Well hopped and floral tasting. Flavor is dominated by herbal notes, but the citrus is noticable. Bitter dry malty finish. Lots of hop character.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 22oz bottle. I’ve had this beer many times in bottle and a few times on tap at the brewery. I thought it was about time I rated it. The beer pours a nice golden straw color with a big thick imposing head. The scent is light and hoppy and not overwhelmingly hoppy. The taste has a nice hoppy bite and a bigger taste then an average ipa with that nice big 7.25% abv. It is a high quality IPA and another great brew from Alesmith and nicely low cost as well.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2008 22 oz bottle from HiTimeWine.com. Pours an almost clear golden amber color with a massive chunky head. Leaves a ton of lace on glass as it SLOWLY SNAILISHLY dissipates. Floral/fruity aroma of fresh bread, pine and orange. Starts and finishes a bit sourish, with some caramel, orange, and pine tucked nicely in between. Very balanced, perhaps a bit sweet and malty for an IPA..still a very fine IPA, my favorite. I could drink this all day, every day.
