4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 Sampled at Falling rock during GABF (Me so Hoppy). Great looking beer! Copper/Orange with a medium sized white foamy head. Nice pine hop aroma. Fresh, simple, clean. Fruity hop flavor (peach and orange) with very well represented malts that make the hop bitterness smooth throughout. Creamy medium body, that works great with this IPA. Most enjoyable IPA of the GABF trip. Iíd love to get my hands on some of this.

Had on cask at falling rock during the GABF. Excellent IPA, medium bodied with light piney hop notes and a wonderful cask-ale texture. Cloudy straw pour with minimal head. One of my favorite ipaís of the week.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow! I gave this bad marks in the past but the one I had last night was awesome. Light orange-yellow in color with a white head that dropped quick. The smell reminded me of candy. The taste was sweet with fruity notes and a real bitterness. This was a pretty excellent beer.
Serving type: on-tap

This was simply delicious. Has a kind of fruity, apple pie spice aroma, with some grapefruit as well. Flavor is tart at first and melts into this creamy malty mouthfeel, followed by some zesty bitterness, that always manages to stay smooth and delicious. This is a very well put together IPA

Alaskanwarren kindly bottled this up from a growler for me. Copper with a skim of white bubbles. Deliciously fresh grapefruit, tart apples, cinnamon. A lively and spicy aroma, with a touch of underlying honey sweetness. Nice level of bitterness, but a little resiny. Not distractingly so. The clinging hops give it some nice substance. I liked this! Survived the bottling quite well!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2006 Cask at Falling Rock: Frothy head; cloudy and orange-hued. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, naturally. Doughy malts. Sharp aromas: spices, perfumes, pepper, pine and citrus (tangerine and lemon). Dryish finish. Really tasted like it was aged in a white wine barrel. At first I found the beer kind of awkward, but it grew on me with a little time. Rerate, draft at brewery: Sweet and earthy, cookie-dough malts, with hints of cocoa and sugary caramel. Juicy citrus (orange, grapefruit). Healthy amount of pine and a nice level of bitterness to balance things out. Slight nip of alcohol gave it a little edge. Somewhat dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ Falling Rock poured a cloudy golden yellow with a minamal white head. Aroma of piny citrusy hops. Mouthfeel was dry and resiny. Flavors of grapefruit rind, pine and a bit of carmel with a dry bitter finish. Very out of balance but Its a hopheads dream.

Draft, Cask, Falling Rock. Gold brown and clear. Super citrus and grapefruit rind aroma, with some malt. Huge citrusy woody hop flavors with some caramel malt backing, and a huge lingering bitter bite. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Seriously unbalanced, but to me, fairly enjoyable.

Cask at Falling Rock. Off yellow, a little cloudy. No head, of course. Sweet malty aroma, small hops. No carbonation as it should be, smooth casked mouthfeel. Hops are well expressed, and linger long through the finish.

From the cask. Copper clear with a piqued offwhite head. Aroma is lemony and bitter - like a lemon seed. Taste is like chewing on grapefruit. Over time, some other flavors come in. Ok, never mind, mainly itís just grapefruity hops. Some piney resonous hints. Body is nice and thick.
