On tap at the Brew Pub Boston Dec 05. Easily my favourite of the ones that I tried. Amber coloured nice crispness and bitterness though some sweetness balances things out well, hops come through very well suprised at the strength. Very good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a pale amber with little head (all of the beers at the brewpub were very lightly carbonated). Nutty and slightly hoppy. Of the beers I sampled at Beer Works, this was the most tinny in the aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At the Fenway location - 7/21/2005
Pours a clear deep copper, a little darker than you would expect from the average IPA. Creamy and dense tan head. Smells of bitingly bitter floral hops.
The hops overwhelm the tongue. Yes, there is a bit a light malt sweetness in there but overall just very bitter from start to the long lingering finish. Herbal and floral hops assault the palate. No sweet citrusy grapefruit here. Good stuff if you like an IPA to bite back a bit. Fine drinker for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Fenway location -- nice IPA, a bit too sweet for my tastes, suprised to see it was 6.5%, as this beer tasted like it needed more alcohol. More pine than citrus.
