3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great IPA. A pint on tap at Mad Dog?s on the Riverwalk in SA. A little pale in color for me, but a nice floral aroma, and a good soapy head that hangs around. Like most IPAís Iíve tried, this has a definite grapefruit taste. Not nearly as bitter as some other IPAís, though. I think that reduces the aftertaste, which didnít stay with me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange amber with a foamy off white head. Citrus and pine aroma that is orange dominated. Sweet caramel malt aromas that are hugely reflected in the flavour. A very pronounced malt profile, which is different to many of the dry IPA?s that I?ve had lately. Flavour is a balance of orange marmalade, toffee and stonefruit with some lingering hop bitterness. A little sweet for my taste, but that?s my personal taste. Medium carbed and full bodied. I would have again

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy orange hue with thick fizzy white head that settled. Suspended particles. Aroma is straw, pine, lemon, peppercorn, yeast. Mouthfeel is decent with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a spicy bitterness that extends through the finish. Overall this isnít a very good representation of an IPA. It tastes faintly like a hoppy saison. Perhaps this is just an off bottle that was exposed to Brett, but itís not very good.
I canít find a date on the bottle. The only printing is on the base: 315 D-2 1515. Perhaps this was a bad batch.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"Light citrus (more orange than graperuit) on the nose with some pine. Medium-light bodied. A touch malt heavy, maybe due to age. The hops are there, but donít quite pop...though the finish is more than adequately bitter. OK."

From a bottle. Pours cloudy orange, tiny white head, floral aroma, smooth with a good IPA hop punch and medium lingering bitterness. I like it and was pleasantly surprised.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma very light almost non-existent. Taste not unpleasant but a bit unbalanced - bitterness mixed with straw pale ael type flavour. Indeed more a British style ipa. Drinkable for sure but not a top choice.
