1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Ugh...didn’t like this beer. Aroma was near nothing. Thin and metallic with a hint of hops. Pour was a nice cloudy medium gold with a puffy two finger off white head. Taste was thin and nasty. The bitterness was there, but it wasn’t a hoppy bitterness. It was like a putting your finger in your mouth after you’ve been handling change bitterness if that makes sense to anyone. Very thin mouth feel and the nice strong carbonation drowns out any real flavors. The finish leaves an uncomfortable bitterness in the throat. Very weird and not good.

The pour is a hazy orange with a quickly falling white head.
The nose is citrus hops and fruity bubble gum.
The flavor is lightly bitter with a dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours pale amber/orange, slightly hazy, with a medium off-white head, decent staying power and good lacing. Aroma is dominated by grapefruit, with some grassiness. Taste is grassy, citrus, with some malt body and a bitter dry finish. Crisp and medium to full bodied. Seemed like a good offering to me.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
651mL thanks to Travlr. Hazy orange pour with a diminishing white head. Little lace. Nose is heavy onion with root vegetables and sour tea. Really funky. Very strange. Taste is quite sappy and bitter with pine bark. Palate is full bitter. Not so bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. This pours a rusty orange, slightly cloudy, with a big head of white foam. The initial aroma is spicy, with a coriander-like kick. No surprise then that this carries to the tongue, drinking like a Belgian farmhouse beer more than an American IPA. Enjoyable though ... (#4519, 3/9/2012)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2012 Bottle. Shimmering amber with a short, foamy white head. Strong citrus and pine in the aroma with soft malt and caramel. Taste up front is big citrus, grapefruit pulp, pine and floral hops followed with sweet malt, light caramel and soft spicy hops. Body is medium with a soft, creamy carbonation and slight oiliness. Ends with more pine resins and grapefruit juice with sweet malt, light caramel and spicy hops. Nice sessionable IPA!

A good head but a light looking body. Decent bitterness, I’m guessing 60 IBU,however a bit on the light side in mouthfeel. C-hop aroma certainly there.The malting does not do it justice in terms of bringing out the flavour. .radek’s bottle from his most recent trip down to the brewpub.
