3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at RFD in D.C. Dark orange appearance, with a light white head. Has a malty, yet sprucey aroma, quite intriguing. Has a very solid citrusy taste but not tongue numbing with too much cascade hops, very drinkable. Finishes strong with a chewy mouthfeel. Overall, a very good IPA.

This one sure is tasty. Pours reddish/amber with not much head. Very hoppy with a strong flavor. This almost has a fruity scent to it. A great product.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2004 Small white head, retains a creamy fiz around edge of glass. Clear orange/amber body. Fairly hoppy in the nose... strongly perfumey (most sure I've ever been about perfume-like hops), plus some pine. Pretty big hop presense in flavor, with a fair amount of different types present: flowery, pine, orange rind, grapefruit. I also just had a corriander burp. I can't find malt though. The hops remind me of Behemoth Barleywine, and I like the orange notes both in the aroma and taste.

<12oz Bottle Poursa dark golden color, clear and with a thick foamy white head that retains well. Nice English hop aroma and a slight citrrus note. Body is medium and well carbonated. Flavor is slightly watery and weak. Some hop flavors but overall just an average IPA in my opinion. Thanks Slob.

Pours a light amber with a thick off-white head. Hoppy aroma, with hints of lemon zest and citrus fruits. Pine needles, toasted malt, citrus fruits, and spices on the tongue, but perhaps a bit bland. Mildly dry. finish. Overall this is a quality IPA. It won't disapoint you.
