Nice citrusy, hoppy flavor. Pours nice and tan. Typical of a IPA basically, pretty decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a crystal clear honey-golden color. A foamy, off-white head leaves behind random patches of lacing. The aroma shows orange chiffon, dry grassy hops, wet grains, and spicy floral notes. The flavor is grainy up front, moving quickly on to bitter grassy hops, sweet citrus, and pale caramel malts. The medium body sports a lively, overly fizzy carbonation. The bitter finish lingers for quite some time. Decent IPA, but a bit too grainy in my opinion. Far from special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
beautiful golden colour .... a very hoppy smell .... which strange enough turns into a rather malty tast, pleasant nutty bitterness ...
interesting brew, if I would have been tasting this blindfolded, I canít imagine placing this to NY ... pleased to give a good review to a US brew ....

12-oz. Dark brownish with bright caramel highlights. Light grayish film for a head. Nasty propane and sweat nose. Dry, fizzy, watery body. Not what I would have expected from Mr Oliver.

Bottle. Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity. Flavor is sweet whith a decent amount of bitterness. Decent beer just needs more depth.

Poured a dark amber with a small white head. Taste was a good balance of hops and sweetness with hints of pine and fruit. The aftertaste was slightly too bitter.

poured in tulip. hazy golden brown, very thin layer of white head that looks like itíll leave a pretty good lacing. the head quickly disappeared. very powerful aroma. hops, pine and fruit. taste is rather bland. more flavor in the aftertaste than anywhere else, however, way less bitter than i was expecting, which in this case was a disappointment.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2/4/08 12 oz bottle from Liquor Store down the street. Pours a clear orange with a creamy off white head. Nose is muted hops. The citrus, pine, floral notes with oranges, and caramel malts. Flavors are a lot of the oranges, floral notes, with lemon and earthy notes that arenít all that enjoyable. Not a bad IPA, but nothing to write home about.
