3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle thanks to Jaye. Pours light golden colour with lots of off white foam, and it sticks around for a while. Aroma of citrus hops and a little malt. Taste is very smooth, with proper amount of IPA hop bitterness. Flavour dies away rather abruptly, leaving a thirst for me. A nice IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma hits you in the face the moment you open the bottle, very hoppy, citrus, lemon, pine and flowers. Poured a murky blonde with a thick, foamy, lacing white head. Citrus flavors, orange and lemon, very fresh flavor. Bitter, astringent finish and slightly soapy and thick on the tongue and mouth. Great smell, great hop taste. This is a beer for the hop lovers.

Grand IPA to say the least. The hazy orange color and hoppy aroma lets you know that Mr. Hop is here and he ready to do some beatiní! Funny how a beer can be both bitter and sweet at the same time. This one pulls it off. Not as strong as would be expected, but I would classify this as a good "sippiní beer"

Medium orange/amber color - soft creamy head. Aroma is sweetly citrus, with notes of bubblegum and other fruits. Fabuolusly hoppy flavor, rich and lively. Finish is sweet and clean without being cloying. Truly a world-class IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2008 12 oz bottle. Purchased at Chevy Chase Wine and Liquor in Washington DC. Pours straw colored with a large white head. The hop aroma is omniprescent I could smell it immediatley after the pour. The taste is hoppy and bitter with a lingering bitter edge. Its refreshing but sharp, not as drinkable as other IPAs, but definetly good.

smells sweet; pours cloudy pale that you can almost see through. It has a very lite and unique flavor that isnít the best example of an IPA but itís memorable and has lots of character. If your looking for somthing with more punch I suggest you look elsewhere, but for something strong (% wise) yet smooth this is a good buy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Hazy orange color with thin white head that left a bit of lace on the glass. Distinct vegetal, floral hop aroma. The hops come out again in the flavor, of course, and are accompanied by an adequate, but marginalized malty backbone. Nice and bitter on the tongue.

Aroma has alot of citrus.Pours a copper color with a white head.Taste is a great balance of hops and malt.At first you get the big hops then a good bit of malt with a nice bitter finish.If I plan on drinking alot this is the one I usually go to.Very easy to drink.
