3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #1043 - March 27, 2014 - @avbc tap takeover @revolutionYEG - Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, spicy earthy hops, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and paleish malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear copper body that supports a dirty white head. The aroma offers up earthy herbal hops, a sliver of sweetened citrus and then a spiced sort of apple sensation. The taste starts with bitter pine and then pineapple hops rolling quickly into malt sweetened citrus. In the background bubbles plenty of lightly roasted malts, some biscuit malts and a dash of caramel malts. A little bitter and malty and lacking in balance.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a thick white head. More caramel and sweet malts in the aroma than hops. Some subtle notes at the end however. Flavor is malty and lightly fruity with the barest hint of hop bitterness. Not overpowering but enough of a hop presence to balance it out.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle- Pours golden with a huge off white head and lots of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is minerals, caramel malts, floral, light and fruity. The taste earthy hops, medium solid bitterness, not a fan of the malt they used, caramel and dirty. Not a very good IPA.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a lightly hazy rust orange. Has a faint malt and light fruit aroma. A strong malt and caramel taste with some fruits. A lingering bitter malt and extra sweet and dry caramel aftertaste.

Taste like an IPA with some notes of red pear. A bit too much going on for my liking. You can taste the 6.8% alcohol. It's needlessly strong.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass at Django Western Taco. Pours a clear orange color with a small barely off-white head that lasts for a little while. This one leans malty overall, with caramel and lightly toasted and pale malts, with honey, apple, light florals, and brown sugar. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty, but kind of clean mouthfeel. There just isn’t much to this despite an interesting description.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was poured into a nonic pint.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange golden color with a slim white head that immediately dissipated leaving barely any lacing.
The smell had a decent amount of sweet blueberries intertwining with the bitter citrus hops. A light sweet pine enters and hangs nicely to balance it all out.
The taste was moderately bitter with a decent sweet blueberry to accompany the flavor. It has a decent malt base. There’s a semi-dry sweet blueberry aftertaste leading to just a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed appropriately styled and came across as an EIPA.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good EIPA that I could have again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
I expected an IPA, but I read the label. It is a bit off from the dry and fruity/piney we have at the higher percentiles. Does not mean it is a bad beer. I liked it although I would say it is more like a stronger pale ale. A little slick/buttery though. However, the "India" label is associated with particular flavors, unfortunately.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours a clear deep golden color with an off white head. The aroma has lots of strawberries, caramel and light floral notes. A little rotting fruit. The flavor is the same with strong, aspirin like bitterness. More caramel and rotting fruit. No thank you.
