3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is malty and yeasty with caramel and a huge floral citrus hop. The appearance is copper gold with a big foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter bread finish. The palate is average. Overall pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops plus a little caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same, with nothing really to balance out the hops. Average texture. An average IPA.

Pours a cloudy straw color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, light alcohol, and citrus hops. Flavor of citrus, caramel malt, light toast. A good amount of bitterness at the finish.

Bottle. Cloudy golden with decent foamy head. Lots of bitterness but the malt is powerful. Not my favorite but a good ipa which is a little different.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A new arrival to NH, the notches on the side indicate July 2012, is that a bottled on or exp date?
Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a huge white head that shows great retention and moderate lacing. The aroma is mostly garlic and green onions. Maybe there’s a hint of bready malt, but its really hard to find. The flavor follows the aroma really well. I get lots of vegetative onion and garlic hop flavor with just a hint of sweet bready malt that is struggling to find a voice. The finish holds a bit of licorice and more of the garlic long after every sip. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a light syrup resinous mouthfeel. Intense vegetative hop aroma and flavor, but this seems to lack any complexity. I could drink this, but wouldn’t seek it out.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep orange golden color with a two finger head that sticks to the sides as the beer swirls about.... Aromas are nice tangerine, citrus and touches of caramel and pine. On the palate the beer comes across pretty juicy and clean with nice fresh hop appeal. The midpalate and finish kind fo fall apart slightly and keep this beer in the decent realm where some nice malty flavors and a touch more bitterness from some late addition hops would really bring this beer up a notch. Good beer but there are just so many great IPA’s coming out these days for this one to be a standout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden color out of the bottle with a large, sticky, frothy off white head. Light fruity nose of mostly orange. Lots of orange and tangerine flavors with some red grapefruit juice. Long sweet tart finish with a lot of candied grapefruit rind. Sweet, hoppy IPA that hides the claimed 7.3% abv very well. Very nice IPA.
