An drop in the sea of American IPAs.
Sedimented golden. Nice foam. Tropical notions. Bready pale malts, not too much crystals.
Atrocious label. Strong citric bitterness blend with yeastiness. Simplicity. Rough edges.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2005 Draught, Bristol Brewpub, Colorado Springs. Head is mostly lasting. Body is medium amber. Aroma is moderately hoppy (grapefruit, flowers, orange, apricot), lightly malty (cookie, caramel), with a note of peach. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, moderately acidic. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Re-rate on CO2 instead of nitro, and though noticeably better, still not quite my thing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A yeasty IPA. Well hopped but seriously lacking on the malt front
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed 2 months after receiving it from BeerandBlues2 (thanks a lot Brad!). Shared at a tasting session with Montreal crew
The look: Cloudy orange body with a small white head.
In long: Fluffy body with a strong yeast presence. Decent hop profile with flavours of orange peels, citrus skin and citric notes. Medium bitterness. All that is good but that beer has as much malts as I have class, and man was I proud of that big smelly fart that I let go at that tasting session. Funny stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle an extra in a trade. Pours a dark amber body with 2 finger off white head. Aroma is sweet honey pine, soft hoppy floral aroma. Flavor is sweet pine honey but a good malt backbone that i’m digging as hoppy as it is. This works and the etoh isn’t overbearing, a good citrus fruit flavor as well. Solid beer easy drinking. A perfect session ipa, i really like it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Josh. THanks! Nose is floral and lightly citrus with doughy malt notes and a hint of caramel. Pours hazy golden orange with a thin non lasting head. The flavor is rather subdued mix of citrus, floral hops, dough, and caramel malt. Lightly bitey hop finish. Would like to try this on draught as I can see it being a completely different experience.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22. Pours crystal clear coppery medium amber with towering, thick, massively surging, fluffy white head and thick sheets of lace coming down the glass as it settles. Easily a 5:1 fluff:beer ratio on first pour. Piney hops, crackers, a little bit of staleness due to diacetyl. Medium body, moderate carb. Biscuit, oranges, and a brief flash of resin near the end comprise the mid-palate. Mild resin and orange pith finish. Decent.

FOBAB 2004, there called Edge City Old World IPA, "English IPA dry-hopped and aged in English oak." It poured a hazy copper color with a foamy off-white head. The aroma was predominantly of floral hops and a bit of smokiness, prhaps from the aging. Itís a very tasty IPA with a solid malt backbone and some good floral, citric, and earthy hoppiness. Nice bitter finish.
