3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz pour from refrigerated bomber into shaker pint. Moderate white head that quickly dissipates. Very hazy and light golden. Nose is carmelly, a little malty, citrus. Medium bodied. Taste is fairly sweet-- lots fruity orange. Solid IPA, though the aftertaste is a bit off.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Beer Republic. Rich yellow with medium sized foamy white head, grassy hops aroma, medium carbonation, slightly sweet hoppy taste, medium finish. Quite balanced and well.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this so many times I forgot to rate. The first I remember distinctly was at dba in the East Village circa 2000 with, alex, alex, Tim Dave etc. Tasted like a razor blade of hops. 15 years later it’s a juicy well balanced ipa out of a bottle.

12 FL OZ ($12.31 6 pack) Pretty good IPA, passed on this one many times as I didn’t find the box very appealing. having had everything else I was left with trying this. glad I did as this was a fairly good IPA.

Golden orange, fairly clear. Reasonable amount of light tan head. Light citrus, pine. Good amount of biscuity malt. Decent amount of bitterness, though far from overpowering. Malt sweetness lingers. Medium body, cleaner, though alcohol is fairly upfront. Pretty darn good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big expectations but they were not fully achieved. Didn't seem as well balanced as a 7-8% IPA should be, too boozy on the nose and palate. Overpowered the hops too much.

Widely available, really good, easy drinking IPA. It’s not overdone in any way. Nice beer!

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a great IPA. When you pour it, nice heavy head that leaves proper lacing on a glass and lasts for quite a while. Dark, amber coloring with light carbonation and wonderful aroma.
Taste is hoppy, deep, nice aftertaste. Caramel, bread, chocolate.
Definitely a must-drink beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The faint floral scent compliments the more potent orange and rosemary aromas. Just enough toffee and stone fruit to make this a very drinkable IPA. This is still one of my favorites and never disappoints. $6.00; this is the best value bomber for an IPA I know of. Same goes for the Bear Republic stout.

Draft at Eureka. Not much to say about this that hasn’t been said already. A classic that today leaves me cold. Solid, nice pine/citrus combo, but so many others out there like this now it just seems like all the rest -- well-constructed, but nothing that makes me want to get a 6-pack.
