3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that was very long lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated light copper colored body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was mild hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained nothing but notes of strong hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in Vegas. Has a light copper appearance with a light white head, slightly pale for an IPA. Light sprucey nose. Good, balanced hoppy bitter flavor, not overwrought with citrus but enough to let you know it is an IPA. Also a hint of some caramel and toffee. Decently thick mouthfeel. Solid brewpub IPA.

On tap @ Chicago poured a hazy gold with a lasting creamy head. Aromas of tangerine, orange, light pine and carmel. Palate was light bodied and dry. Flavors of tangerine, grapefruit rind and light carmel with a dry lingering bitter finish.

Pour is lightly hazed golden with a thin white head...smell is piney and soapy and slightly floral...taste is mildly bitter and fairly well balanced with some malt flavor holding it together...thinnish I think...

A great little IPA, with a very evident citrus hop nose, and a very sweet candi sugar maltiness. Velvety rich mouthfeel, with alot of texture and a really nice balance of flavors. Finshes clean and bitter

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the NABA 06 Fest: Excellent head and lacing. I never got a chance to see the color as the head never dispersed and these opaque white plastic tasting cups are certainly subpar. Nose is super hoppy, citrusy and fruity. Flavor is pleasant, nice dry hopped character. Full body, has that sweet candy cane like balance to complement the nice hop resins and oils floating on top of the beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mountain Brewers Beer Fest 2006. Lack of appearance judging reflects opaque plastic sampling cup.
Great dry hopping in this IPA. Heavy pine and grapefruit from the hops balances grains that are a bit on the straw side.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Love the smell though it doesn’t last long. This beer maintains the head better than almost any I’ve ever seen, including Belgians. Some pretty good hops in the flavor, but a little too much malt. A like it a lot, just don’t love it. A very bitter finish.

Hazy amber color. It has a good hop aroma, not too strong, fruity and resiny. Medium body, with a strong toffee flavor and extreme hopping, very resiny, aggressive, a bit fruity too. Very good.

Cloudy golden color; creamy head. Hop aroma, very grassy, wet field soil, manure. Good body strength, smooth mouthfeel, strong malt flavor (like a good Pils) overwhelmed by a powerful hopping, with a lot of hop oils and some resins. Extremely long and strong final. A bit strange but very good, midway between an American and English IPA: stronger hopping and body, but not so fruity. Fuggles touch too!

Golden color. Fruity hoppy aroma. Good body, malty, sweet, round, and a good amount of aromatic and resiny hops. Good.

22 oz. draft at the 4 Queens. Very tasty with good long finish. Probably would have enjoyed the taste even more had I not been smoking cigars in the casino all day. Heck of a deal too at $4.00 for 22 oz. mug
