2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I am not an IPA fan, nor do I like much of anything with a bitter taste; however, this IPA is not overpoweringly hoppy and not quite as bitter as some i’ve tried before. The aftertaste is not quite as harsh as others that I’ve had. I would probably like this beer with the right foods.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2010 Pours slightly cloudy, amber with a moderate head. Lacing is medium, foamy. Nose is slightly citrus and has hints of caramel. Mouthfeel is medium, the carbonation likewise, with a hint of sweetness and a moderate dose of bitter. Finishes pretty clean with only a lingering bitterness. Pretty decent IPA.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells nice and fruity / citrusy. Tastes a lot different - almost sour like some fruit juice that’s been warmed / left out too long instead of just a pure hoppy taste. Nice texture and plenty of carbonation. Not a bad beer - but there’s definitely not enough of the good stuff and I notice a little too much of the rough spots to make it entirely enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated hazy yellow orange colored body. The mild aroma was malty and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild bitters mild strong malt and mild hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle - Wonderful cascade hop (and other) aroma. Clear gold with off white head. Wonderful hop flavors that are not overpowering like many IPA (as i mentioned before, i’m not a hop head). Nice on palate but overall a wonderful tasting impression and brew.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle into shaker. Strong piney hop aroma, some grapefruit. Hazy orange hue with lots of sediment floating around. Nice thick rocky head with good lace. Taste starts out with a little sweetness, finishes mostly bitter, but not extremely so. Nicely balanced. Some definite wheat flavor. Highly carbontated, medium to almost full-bodied, oily. A fine IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity/hoppy aroma with surprising caramel notes. Very crisp malt flavor with a bitter finish. Complex with hops and caramel all in one. Full bodied with a small amount of carbonation. A very crisp finish. Brings boule back from the lunar ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A fridge temp, I was so-so on this one. as it warms to something more like British pub temps, it comes into its own. Very nicely balanced, plenty malt-forward without overt sweetness, grassy and even a bit earthy instead of an over-the-top pine and citrus blast. Not a big ass-kicking IPA, but one that is growing on me for drinkability.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours cloudy golden (more cloudy than the Boulevard wheat ale I had before this) with nice lacework and a thin head, in fact if it weren’t for the lack of a nice head this beer would have recieved a 5 in the appearance department. The aroma is pretty subdued, some yeast. The flavor is a smoother than your average IPA, but lacks what I think constitutes a good IPA, pine citrus and a strong hop background, there is definitely hops in the taste, mostly in the back of the throat, but this seems to be a half breed of a wheat ale and an IPA, kudos for trying something new, but who wants a hoppy wheat ale. I suppose I am being too hard on this brew, after drinking most of my glass it isn’t half bad.
