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.

Bottle sampled. Pours amber/golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, spices, and sweet malts. The flavor is citrus, floral, sweet, with a moderate bitter finish.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 this beer has a very nice hop tingle on the tongue. it has a greater malt base than grapefruit hop taste. it is bitter and this bitter tang lasts. that was welcome. a woody bitter tang with the grapefruit flavor a bit in the back. good carbonation. as you drink many pale ales you will like this one more.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated 8/4/06: Nicely balanced and somewhat mild for an IPA I like it and it really seems to work well. Aroma is a nice mellow floral hop scent, slightly bitter. Poured a nice light to medium copper with good lacing and a thin creamy head. The carbonation is amazingly strong. Good crisp feel with a smoothness that finishes clean and a little bitter. Flavor is malty with complimenting hops. The mild balance is a great change of pace from most IPA’s. A slightly different take on a popular style, I really like this one good if you want to enjoy a few.

Nice cloudy golden. Sweet hoppy aroma. Taste not as hoppy as the smell. Doughy, bitter taste. Pretty average. Nothing distinguishing about it. Mild.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good aroma. Mouthfeel medium. Complex flavor profile, with nuts and light fruits. A bit of a soapyness that detracts. Finishes with very little bitterness. A decent, flavorful IPA.
