3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish-orange with a thin, creamy, white head. Spicy, citrus aroma. Flavor is very english: the hops are spicy and flavorful, the malt is sweet, caramel. Even though it is a bit toned-down compared to most IPAs, it is very flavorful and a pleasure to drink.

Bottle shared with afire-my pleasure. Orange-red pour, some subdued citrus -pine sent with hop notes. A sweet grainy feel with a hops mix. Good flavor for a style that is not my favorite and the aroma didnít turn me off, actually rather subtle and refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
a bit of a sour aroma (unexpected). thankfully it didnít come back in the flavor. Looks great, good taste too, although everything is a bit damped down compared to the best mircobrew ipaís iíve encountered. Great balance between sweet and bitter, a bit on the bitter end of the scale, which i like. Alc. totally hidden. Great brew, but the aroma draws down bigtime.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by The_Captain. Thanks Mark. Pours amber-orange with a creamy white head. Smells of citrus and pine. Sweet earthy pine flavor with a bit of citrus. Nice but a tad too sweet for an IPA.

Aroma is slight citrus. Hoppy dryness in the taste but the taste does not equal the feel. Flavor is good. A decent IPA.

Bottle from the Party Pack. I like this one the best. I thought it was a very good IPA tasty but I thought the hops were a bit weak. Would buy again

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a nice reddish/golden color with generous white head. Aroma is citrusy piney and floral. Flavor is pretty much the same. Hops dominate but this is not the bitterest of IPAís. I could have used more hops, but it was a well-balanced and pleasing representation of the style. Nice beer.

sample on 6/5/08, rating from notes. pours a deep golden with white head. brilliant hop character and aroma. Garrett Oliver can really brew... especially in the English style. the citrus hops take control for the most part... a solid clean IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great hop character followed by citrus. Evenly balanced, alcohol is disguised. Overall on the light side for an IPA it complemented an order of nan and Bhun very effectively.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice summery beer with an acidic feeling and clear bitterness. I didnít serve it justice by drinking it out of the bottle, but it was nevertheless a pleasure - a tad oily in the afterpalate.
