4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask Conditioned version - on tap at Boscos Nashville. Amber hue with a creamy off-white head. Excellent lacing that really clings to the glass. Heavy hoppy aroma with hints of herbs, pine, and grapefruit. Also detected a slight grainy and bready malt presence. Good balance on the palate, bitter hoppy finish, but not extreme. Dry and lively mouthfeel. A very good American IPA. Seek out when in Tennessee.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a sampler: Pours a goldish orange color with a medium off-white head and thin lacing. Well-hopped aroma. Nice and tart with a medium body, with a full hops flavor from start to finish. The finish is crisp and clean. Nicely done.

A very decent IPA and the best that Boscos makes. This is one of the beers that got me into trying and appreciating good beer. Great hoppy character with adquate malt. Join me at the pub for this refreshing and good beer.

RAF: This one was the nerdy freshman in a crowd of tall, swarthy seniors, so to speak. Hoppy as all hell but weak as a result...run of the mill.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer Engine cask (RAF): an average display of spicy fruits and pinapples coming from a golden orange body and beer-engine-fathered head..tangerines clothe the hops tonight..with some malts swimming somewhere in the background..the body is semi-thin..and this is just an average IPA.

While not over hoppy, this is a very good beer and it is quite refreshing - I would love to have another. GABF 2002

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2006 My 2nd favorite Boscos brew that is served year round. Hoppy and tasty. The cask conditioned version allows me to rate it this high.
