Slightly hazy orange, small off white head. Aroma pine and citrus hops, malt. Medium body. Flavor is pine-like hops, just off dry, fairly malty without being particularly sweet. The bitterness is fairly subtle for an IPA but overall well balanced and enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by Leighton at RBWG. I did not care for this beer apparently. My only notes are: light water, malt, sweet malt, grain, little bitter. My guess is that it didnít really stand up to the other awesome pale ales we were having this weekend.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish mild vinous hop aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of brown malt and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber to taster at the RBWG Grand Tasting (thanks Leighton). Looks solid; a mostly transparent dark orange with white lacing. Smells and tastes of bitter hops with a caramel backbone. Average on the palate. Decent beer.
