2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong aroma poured out of the bottle. Verry hoppy. Aroma and hoppiness subsided somewhat (or I built a tolerance for it as I kept drinking). Amber color, good head and lace. This was my first organic beer and I was not disappointed. I really liked it as I kept drinking.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
22 oz bomber. Orange copper coloured with a thin white head. Earthy malty aroma, with some biscuit and toffee along with a shot of piny hops. Flavour is a bit buttery with caramel, toffee, and an intense resinous hop flavour. Decent bitterness. I found the butter and dank earthiness made this undrinkable as it warmed. Didnít taste infected, but definitely not my style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Burnt orange, slight haze, moderate frothy off-white head, fairly decent lacing, mild carbonation.   Earthy aroma, not musty at all, but quite soil like, subtle hop presence.   Quite herbish, earthy, soil like at start, decent maltiness, with a soft hop trailer on the backside.   Fairly clean finish.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Decent offering, but a bit too much soil.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served from a 12 oz bottle.
In appearance this doesnt look much like your typical IPA, its dark copper/amber in colour with a large thick off white head.
Nice hoppy aroma present, a little citric..lime rather than lemon.
Nice caramel malt sweetness in the tate to begin with then in a sec the piney, grapefruity hoppiness takes over and then at the end it subsides and seems balanced one more.
Good on the palate, not boring at all.
Very nicelly done IPA, not over the top..but has loads of chracter.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Was this an IPA trying to come in light, or a pale ale trying to break into the IPA crowd? Went down VERY smooth. I'd easily drink this as a lawn-mower beer if I was looking for one. Definately some British-style hops in there, but nothing like the typical West Coast IPA that most people expect.
