2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At first look it is not a great beer, it resembles some of those tasteless yellow lagers that I try to avoid. The first taste isn’t much better. But to be honest, it got better as I got closer to the bottom of the glass. Although not a great beer, I would recommend this beer above the others at this brewery.

"if you are a hop head this brew is for you" is what the menu proclaimed. really? i didn’t taste a single hop in this "brew"...this was light golden colored water. a waste of time and an insult to beer.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Blackwater Brewing Co. (Davis, WV).
Very tall creamy head. Rocky. Golden on color. Flavor is a thin grain, bold bitterness. Light pine aroma. Very bitter. More hops are present from the boil than towards the finish. Not much aroma. Light bodied and very dry. And very bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 On draft at Blackwater Brewing Company. Poured clear, dark gold. Thin and lacking malts. Lacking the hop profile I was anticipating as well. Sessionable.

On tap, from the source: Deep yellow color with minimal head. Medium malts and virtualy no hops. Not much I in this PA. Not much PA either. Carbonation is low. Flavor is a bit bitter but later developes. Like all the beers I’ve tried from Blackwater Brewing Co., the first sip taste really off, but for some crazy reason by mid-glass it tastes quite good and begins to fit the style. Regardless, I find this to be on the low end of IPA’s.
