3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with big fluffy white head. Decent c-hops aroma, very little malt backing. Flavor is rather bland in front with a decent bitter hop finish. Feel a little let down.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at macgrady’s, a grassy/citrus nose coming off of a pale gold body with a thick white foamy head. flavor is grassy and yeasty, little bitts of pine flavor. there is a malty backbone that balances this out quite evenly. the tail is smooth and crisp and though very hoppy, is not overly bitter. very good, this was an ipa i could drink several of, which from me, is saying a lot.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear orange/golden yellow,, small white head fading quickly. Aroma of grapefruit and pine needles, standard IPA style. Flavor is full of bread, pine needles and a yeasty overtone. This brew makes you want to drink more after every sip. Very nice!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour produced a nice pillowy head. The color is like the Avery label on the front... perhaps this was planned? Aroma smells of hops, but I can’t seem to tell which variety. Easy drinking, overall decent IPA.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2005 Large white head. Frothy on top with good carbonation. Nice lacing. Great aroma. Very fruity hops with a excellent mix of peaches and pears. Could sit here and smell it all night. But what fun would that be. Color is a medium golden orange. Light bodied. Crisp and smooth with a great balance. Plenty of hops in there. Bitterness shows up at the finish and lingers for a while. More fruit in the flavor. Very easy drinking. An excellent IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral, malty aroma. Clear and golden with minimal white head that dissipated quickly. No lacing, but a few bubbles on sides of the glass. A good, balanced hop and malt flavor. Flavor and aftertase both had a lot of citric and floral overtones. Aftertaste also had a lingering bitterness. Medium-light carbonation and medium bodied.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Bright orange color with minimal head. Hops all the way in the aroma, lots of pine and floral character. Medium body, slightly sticky and chewy, grapefruit, bitter finish. Typical yet solid west coast IPA.
