3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the CBC. Thin off white head over a golden colored beer. This has the fresh sharp pine forest and pineapple juice nose that I love in an IPA. Body doesn’t really support the hops that the nose promise. Seems a little thin with flavors of sweetened grapefruit, tangerine, apple sauce, all with a hint of malts underneath. Candied grapefruit rind finish. Tastey, but I prefer a little more support for the hops.

Nice looking, orange, mostly clear, fluffy fluffy white head, with retention. The nose is awesome, I thought I was eating a grapefruit. Very creamy mouthfeel, a bit of malt, and a nice hoppy finish though not too dry. Also some caramel in the palate. Very impressive.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy copper body with a bubbly, 1" thick head that leaves some traces of lacing. Nose consists of grapefruit and pine, your traditional straightforward IPA aroma. Not overly abundant, but welcoming nonetheless. Mild malt backbone with a quick sting of hops and a lightly tacky finish. Sticky hop flavor, heavy bitterness without a lot of flowery hop flavors. Some caramel and biscuit malts, but not much. Not too impressed with this.

Pours copper with a decent white head. Smells of citrus, perfumy, crisp, dry malt. Tastes of earth, grassy, wildflowers, citrussy, bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2009 Received as a 21st birthday gift. Delicious citrus aroma. Pours a dark golden color, with a relatively short head. A bit sweeter than most IPA’s. Will probably buy another 6-pack soon.

DrHomolka rocks! Pourss an orangish color with a small white head. Aroma is full of white grapefruit, some malt and pine hops notes. Flavor is really, really good. Citrus and resin hops flourish in this beer without being overly bitter and harsh. There is a decent malt bill but the hops are the star in this one. Nice.
