3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught, 7.1%. Good hoppy aroma, mildly piney, hint of orange juice and perhaps flatulence. Cloudy dark golden colour. Small stable frothy white head. The flavour is nicely hoppy, not unlike the aroma. There is a hint of vanilla and some soft fruit, very faint. A well-crafted and subtle beer, and very good.

Very hazy orange - amber beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate, slightly soft and with mild fine carbonation. Semi dry. Nice hops, mostly pine with some floral notes and lesser peach and tangerine. Trace of apricot. Creamy malt base. Finishes semi dry with hops getting minty and imparting a little bitterness. Good stuff - so very drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest 08. Gold with thick off white head. This has a huge reputation so perhaps I was more critical with this than if it was just another beer. Really resiny hop. Piney grapefruit. Some sherbert. Then I tasted it. Fairly thin and sharp in mouth. Some decent fruit on end. A pretty decent IPA. Pretty easty to drink, malts are ok. Certainly doesnít taste of 7.0%. Itís good. Aroma is great. Finish leaves me a bit cold. Tangerine fruit is good and the hops are excellent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. (from trade with the_epeeist) Golden, almost clear body, under a white head leaving nice lacings. Piney, citrusy, beef-stock malty nose with resin as well. Even though the flavor is on the hoppy side, thereís a balance to it, and I like it. It has a nice level of bitterness, with the usual flavors from the hops, and a good dash of malts. It could maybe have a little bit fuller body, but Iím not holding it against it. The finish is long, resiny and fruity, with a nice bitterness. Lovely, really lovely IPA. (070719)

Hazy orange, good steady creamy white head, some lace. Fabulous citrus and pinewood hoppy aroma. Good malty backed with lemony hops. Fruity finish, a bit yeast also in the flavor. I liked aroma more than flavor.
