3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, purchased from Good Harvest in Waukesha, WI. Very malty for an IPA, also had an almost fruity taste. Lots of head on this. Would try again. (Also used it in a delicious beer bread recipe, superb!)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light copper pour, thin but thick head to start. Nose is faint grapefruit. Somewhat bitter. Middle is caramel malt. Finish is lastingly bitter. Would have liked a few more hops at the end of the boil, just me.

Pours orange. Head is white. Nose has element of citrus, orange and pines along with some sticky caramels and a toasted, cracker/biscuit like aroma. Flavor is again caramel, citrus, and heavy on the toasty crackery malts. Nothing’s crazy about this beer. More of an English style it seems like.

Bottle from six pack. Pretty standard IPA with familiar flavors. Not too bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange with a white head. Aroma is pine and orange with some bread. Flavor is pine and orange from the hops. I get some bitterness but it is fairly subdue due to the biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a great IPA. Harsh hop flavors, kind of metallic finish. Not much more to really say about this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2012 6.5%er.Orange with light brown,short head shortly gone,with spotty lacing/ring.
Nose was kinda off/old earthy dirt yeasty .Some mild hops of ripe fruit(maybe too ripe) some spice light dank/resin and turning more herbal as it sits.Buiscuit bread is equally if not more noticable.
Taste has some toast/roast tones with malt,funky yeast tones off and on which are distracting and heavy and almost repulsive in the finish.Piney bittering is pretty good. Otherwise is a nice subtle complex tasting ipa.Im suspecting age/bad storage conditions.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice IPA with hints of spruce. Definitely hops-centered, but with a caramel backbone from the malt. Slight flat note on the finish, but a good example of a proper IPA.
