4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I guess I’ve never rated this although I’ve had it a hundred times or so. 12 oz bottle poured into an imperial pint (use a tulip glass if you have one on hand). Pours a slightly hazy light amber with small off white head. Smells of pine, tropical fruits, sweet caramel and biscuit. Tastes begins with a malty caramel sweetness and then transitions to the hops; starts with the tropical fruits, citrus, then heavy pine and grassiness and ends with a drying bitterness. Aftertaste lingers on the tip of the tongue. Medium to light bodied, very flavorful and very sessionable. Delicious beer, alcohol is well hidden.

Drank this draw at mavericks on a random Sunday night. I did like it. Kind of a strong fruity taste.

Aroma is super citrusy. Strong orange, pineapple, tropical fruit and mango. Touch of resiny pine and booze. Taste is just as citrusy: orange, grapefruit, pine, malt, slight booze, with a lingering subtle bitterness. Exceptionally balanced. Very strong flavors mixed together almost perfectly.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy blonde, with an orangish haze and good large head. Bitter, hoppy, floral aroma. Bitter and floral flavors, with some slight citrus. Sort of dry finish. Not bad.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2008 After drinking a pint of Evan Williams after a tough Friday at work (which can kill anybody’s tastebuds).. upon further inspection My score still stands.

Good IPA. Pours a nice golden color - fruity taste - almost like fruity pebbles. Nice finish, didn’t taste very bitter to me, but I had a few before. Still a nice IPA, would rather have a Stone.

This beer pours a dark coppery hazy color with a full off-white head that lingers for quite a while. The aroma is strong for sweet grapefruit and pine with a underlying sweet caramel quality. In the flavor, one finds pine, lemon, dark dried fruits, and sourdough bread. The beer finishes with a bitter tang. The palate is medium-large. Great IPA!
