Bottle from Utobeer. Amber coloured with a short-lived, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, with some citrus and floral hops. Flavour had lots of sweet malt, a touch of grapefruit and then a decent bitter finish. Enjoyable.

Poured into pint glass. Nice, rich, creamy head. Settled down around rim. Color is light and golden, lighter than many IPA’s. Unbelievably floral hoppy smell, just amazing. Fantastic smelling brew.Very balanced in hops and malt, unlike a lot of IPA’s that are overhoppy (not bad or good). Full flavored beer. Rich and flowery hop finish. Sweet, yet balanced. Very tasty brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. small off white head into murky brownish - orange body with very noticeable sediments floating around. head dissapated quickly and almost completely. aromas of moderate juicy sweet citrus hops and moderate caramel malts. flavors are moderately sweet throughout...almost too sweet without enough bitter to balance it out. okay IPA.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium to dark brown with a cream colored head. Though hops were expected I was caught a bit off guard with an almost sweet characteristic hidden in the taste. This was definately the best out of the variety pack.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
EIPA is delicious. 12 ounce bottle from Glenville beverage. I loved this one. I was sceptical at first. I guess I always am when I try a new beer. dark brown in color, off white head. A little sweet but not too much. The malts are nice. Hops wee wonderful, present, but not overwhelming. I WILL get this one again.

After taking off the cap and begining to pour I was overwhelmed by the strong hoppy smell. The first taste showed how much hops were present. It has a good head and a strong character.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Lots of hop, and it seems more resin than citrus. Light amber color with a flattened white head. Medium body with very mild carbonation. Flavor is well balanced between malt and hop. Not too strong. Just right. The hop seems to finish a bit floral. A delightful brew.

Nice India Pale Ale... The smell was strong of hops - the appearance similar to all IPA’s but with a nice white head (half inch maybe). Overall a great beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
clear amber color, quickly dissipating white head. aroma of orange, grapefruit; hops and citrus. i caught a mild citrus flavor, but not much more. too mild to be recommended as an ipa. kinda water mouth feel. not much happening here.
