4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I split a bomber of this with a buddy and I was completely surprised. The color was yellow with a stark white head. The smell was a little fruity. The taste was pineapple and caramel. The mouthfeel was the best part of this beer, very creamy. Delicious beer, give me more. Oh, and at $3 a bottle, very reasonable.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a thick white head of good duration with extensive lacing, over a slightly cloudy dark golden body....nose of floral hop and pine both mild to moderate....tastes initially of light malts the medium hop bitterness with floral and grapefruit to finish....mouthfeel is light to medium. This is "English" or VERY "East Coast" in style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle. Slight copper color. Slight head. Aroma was on the grapefruit side of hops. Taste was somewhat disappointing as the hops just weren’t there. Okay, but not the big IPA hop taste (i.e. APA I was hoping for. More true to British style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Below average IPA. Golden amber color. Might have been an average APA but no balls here. Watered down IPA. 5.6%?? Some piney muted hops, grapefruit citrusy but just not big enough. Felt like the true hopiness was being held back

I bought a bomber of this at the brewery. It has a copper color with very little head and some lacing. It has a chill haze which clears up nicely while it warms. It has a fantastic aroma, very citrusly, like lemons and a hint of grapefruit. The malt flavor is crisp and a little subdued. The hop flavor is citrusy and bitter. It balances toward the bitter side. This is a pretty good IPA.
