3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2010 Light brown with a chunky head. Nose is a bit soapy and hoppy. Hops up front and on the finish. A bit thin palate and no malt profile. Sharp and tart. Overall this is an overated beer.
8/10: Light hops, mild, refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Falling Rock. Pours a light golden amber hue. Fairly retentive white tanned head. Nice blast of fresh hops off the aroma when swirled a bit. Lots of sweet appley malts up front getting hit with a very forward, yet balanced hop profile in the body and lingering through the finish. Fairly spicey for an IPA, its nice. Nice citrusy presence as well. Nothing out of the ordinary, but good stuff! Definitely worth a shot if you haven’t had a taste for yourself!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at The Falling Rock in Denver. Poured a clear dark orange color. Head was tenacious and off white with good retention and lacing. Aroma was of grapefruity hops, distinct pear, and apricot. Slightly sweet up front with moderate hop bitterness that decreases in intensity, but lingers a bit even as it fades. Tasted of caramel, citrusty hops, burnt toffee, and especially pear. I imagine that a pear liqueur might taste a bit like this. The ever present pear put me off a bit, but this was a decent beer nonetheless.

tap. a bit hazy tan pour . strong citrus nose. sticky sweet candy and orange flavor with some lemon zest. a nice enjoyable hop flavor that does not go to far over the top. a strong sweet malt side helps this out.

GABF 2006: Clear light amber color with an off-white head. Big diacetyl aroma almost completely hides the hops. Sweet and hoppy flavor had a good balance. Mild bitterness on the finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the brewpub. Very dark for an IPA with a deep walnut color and an off-white head with plenty of lacing. Complex fruity aroma, smooth medium body, and superbly balanced fruity and floral hop bouquet at the end. A really excellent IPA that I wish I could get in a bottle -- Bull & Bush is worth visiting for their beers but not the food.
