3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2013 12 oz bottle 9ours a clear amber color with decent white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is as expected: caramel malts, citrus and floral hops. Taste is initially sweet with the earthy citrus hops coming out a bit in the finish. Medim body with average carbonation and a slighly stick mouthfeel. There’s nothing to dislike about this, yet is is not one of the great IPAs.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a crystal clear medium golden color with a decent white head that persists for a bit before leaving a fair amount of lace on the way down. Smells of earthy citrus hops with a solid bready caramel malt to back it up. Solid sweet sugary malt background never dissipates balancing the earthy citrus a bit too much. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Not a bad IPA, certainly nothing flawed here, but just a bit boring in today’s market.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber with an inch of white head that lasts well. Aroma of tropical fruit, soap, caramel, vague citrus. The citrus flavours are brighter in the mouth. Sweet with mango, biscuit, caramel. No particular finish, although some pepper emerges. Modest bitterness. A bit of a muddle.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a clear orange appearance with a white head. Chewy, goopy sweet malty, a bit spicy, grapefruity hoppy aroma that kind of smells a bit sweet. Citrusy, chewy, toasty, goopy malty, herbal hoppy flavor. Not a big fan of this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear dark orange pour, soapy carbonation and an aroma of stale grapefruit. Flavor is white grapes, light malt, hay and mild bite of hops. If it was priced closer to $8/6 pack, I’d pick it up all the time. Will not be buying another one at their 4-pack price though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours hazy dark amber with a large foamy sudsy off white head that slowly settles to a film and sticky lacing. Aroma has mild bitter hops presence with strong caramel malt all around, somewhat sweet. Taste is light bitterness and bready with mild spice and caramel malt. I get a strange meaty bread like flavor in the finish. Palate is thin to medium with a mild spice and dry finish.
