3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a luminescent orange color. Carbonation is very low and kind of a boring thing to look at in the glass. Atypical IPA with much more malt content than hop prominence. I taste licorice and syrup along with a background of english style hopping. Seems like it would be good on tap with the English bitter style. Finish is slightly bitter and lasts.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. Bottle: pours a amber dark gold with an off-white head, malt sweet, flower and some pine scents, caramel fragrances, sweet, malt and hop citrus flavors, taste of some toasted malt, hop bite with a flavor of grapefruit, faint fruit flavor, not a lot of pine scents or taste like the other IPAs I have had, malt sweetness is balanced pretty well with bitterness, hop bitterness persists into the finish, this brew falls along the lines of a English IPA recipe.

Great example of an IPA! Nothing outstanding about this beer but still very good. It poured a light copper color with a very minimal white head. I love the smell of this beer. The flavor contains all the usual IPA suspects: nice hop profile, pine, grapefruit. This beer was much better than I expected it to be.

Hoppy aroma. Dingy copper color, medium head, good lacing Well hopped ringed with vanilla. Finish is quality hops, but lingers a bit too long. Wow!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is full of hops with light pine, citrus and heavier floral notes and some caramel malt accents. The body is a clear copper/orange and holds a diminishing off white head. Nicely hoppy and bitter with an ample malt base that leans toward caramel. The hops are citrus, pine, floral and I get some light plae white fruit notes toward the finish. The finish is quite bitter, but the body is light and quaffable, something I prefer tot he many thick IPA’s coming out these days.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle...crisp, well-hopped, velvety IPA. Apple notes prevail. A little tastier than the mainstream IPA’s but not as brutal as the double IPA varieties. A "hoppy medium," to be exact. I like all the Brokklyn products and this one is no exception.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Huntersville NC. This beer struck all the usual cords when drinking an IPA. I was rather satisfied with this beer and would drink this beer again in the future. Nothing makes this beer stand out among other IPAs, but it is a nice one to enjoy on a summer day.
