3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (12oz) Shared with mds and tupalev, my bottle via trade with TURDFERGUSON. Poured clear pale orange, small head. Mild average IPA aroma, generic hops, moderate malt. Tastes like marigolds - sharply bitter and floral, long bitter aftertaste. Light body, extremely bitter and astringent - over-bitter aftertaste - one dimensional, drinkable, just okay.

an impressive ipa from a brewery I have never heard of. Floral hop aroma. Flavor is bitter but there is citrus as well. Gold color. Straightforward with no complexity but a very drinkable, quality ipa.

Pours an orangish amber. Nice floral nose with a good citrus bite. Nice bitter bite up front with very little malt balance. A good citrus hop finish that dries and stays for awhile

Bottle courtesy of ross. Pours a clear orange-gold which worried me at first as it poured flat, but it eventually got a spare off-white head. Nice grassy hop aroma backed by sweet malt and a little fruit -- simple but pleasant. Slightly watery flavour is bready with caramel malt, grass and a decent bitter finish but maybe a little dull. Light to medium bodied. An O.K. IPA.

The poured a clear golden copper color with an off-white head. Hoppy flavor and aroma of citrus and pine with a sweet malt underneath. The flavor also had some grassy notes as well as being malty and metalic. The flavor was dull.

clear copper-gold body with a small off-white head. little ringlets of lacing. smells of citrus and raw vegetables with grass and light hops. some good herbal flavoring with hops, grass and orange peel. but that is overwhelmed by the more unpleasant tastes that are chalky and acidic. it is also a little flat. i wasn’t very impressed with this one. it was ok but it could have been much cleaner.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium clear orange, OK head. Refreshing hoppy grapefruit aroma. Flavor had a nice note of grapefruit. As it warmed, some biscuit malts and earthy hops emerged. Nice little IPA. The body struck me as being almost "West Coast," where the emphasis is on the hop, not the malt.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright copper color with a trace of a white head that faded quickly. The aroma was nutty, fruity and piney. The flavor was somewhat dry with a tangy and nutty malt base, floral and fruity hops and a sour and bitter finish. The mouthfeel was a bit thin.

Bottle from Ross? or ? Nose of hops and citrusl hazy copper with a small off-white head that laces the glass as I drink; flavor of hop bitterness, without much else, I liked their Pale Ale better.
