3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a reddish-orange relatively clear hue with a slight white head with little lacing. Definitely some spice and honey in the background. Rather easy to drink. As far as IPAs go this one probably ranks in the middle for my taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pretty standard IPA, nothing really jumps out as being extraordinary or even interesting, it’s good but lacks any sort of character or anything to make it stand out against the rest of it’s indian brethren. drank this one while some sketchy freaky guy pretended to puke habenero peppers and freaked out the woman who was working next door alone, she gave me a stone bomber in return for staying there while the creep show did his creepy show

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2006 12 oz bottle via Liquid Solutions. Pours a clear copper with a large head. Nose has lots of pine and grapefruit. Taste is the same as the aroma, with a crisp dry finish. Bittersweet resiny aftertaste. Thick mouthfeel. Full bodied. This is quite tastey and very drinkable if you like tons of resiny hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Samples at the World Beer Festival in Durham, NC. Nice amber color and one hell of a thick head with great lacing. Big strong floral bite from the hops with awesome bitterness to finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2011 Deep amber with a thick white head that near coats the sides of the glass. Strong floral aroma with a blueberry fruitiness zaps the nose at the first whiff. Medium bodied with bitterness rising quickly to a crescendo at the finish, then sticking around for a good long while in the fade. A malt backbone with girth keeps the hops in check while the soft slick palate and active carbonation that scrapes the tongue makes this one a real winner.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
My favorite style but this is middling and seem over rated. Nothing stood out, but I enjoyed it. Complared to tope IPA’s this is little watery, lacked hops, and bite/character.
