Bottle. Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Extremely hoppy in the nose, which makes for a great introduction to an IPA. Taste is very bitter and hoppy, just like an IPA should be. Great brew.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy amber with a thin light-tan head. Lightly sweet, herbal aroma. Flavor has a mild but upfront caramel sweetness balanced by strong pine. Slight sweet citrus fruit flavor. By no means a hop bomb, but has a solid, tasty hop presence that is complemented pleasantly by not-too-sweet caramel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle. Clear amber with a small dense off white head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus, bubblegum, malt and flowers. Flavor malty up front with a firm hop bitterness and some astringency. Medium body with average carbonation. This would be a good beer but it has a harsh astringency that detracts from it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of some herbal hops, dry citrus hops and barely detectable biscuity malt to back. Flavour is very, very dry hoppy, some herbal notes, and dry rye bread. Very, very dry and astringent. Quite unbalanced and barely drinkable due to the intense astringency. OK.
