3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a hazy light orange color with a thin white head that ebbs slowly. Thin sheet of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and earthy malt. Medium-bodied and moderately bitter with hops and pine flavors and just a hint of malt in the background. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Overall this is a slightly above average, kind of one-note IPA.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Spot on and serviceable, not as promising as it sounds, seven hop varieties and all. Lacey. Little aroma. Big bitterness at 82 IBU. Their pale was more enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sampled at Noog Four-0 5/31/08: Pours a transparent bright golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet lightly toasty pale caramel malt with a big grapefruity hop balance. Body starts with good, fairly full pale malty sweetness and nice fresh assertive grapefruity resiny hop flavor. Nicely balanced and enjoyable.

David slays Goliath!!!! Blind tasting, Great Lakes Brewing News IPA Challenge 2010. Cant believe this beat Bells Two Hearted. They caught bells ona bad day, a rather flat listless offering from LB> Now onto the upset. Deeper copper pour, very light bodied, harsh weedy bitterness, light hop burn on the palate. The lesser of two evils this day, still shocked

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A quite nice IPA +++ Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a medium amber color with a medium sized creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was tangy orange and pine with notes of sugar and caramel. The flavor was very bitter yet had an underlying sweetness with intense pine an resin and moderate caramel. The finish was long with sweet pine and resin. The beer really coats the tongue. Moderately full bodied. Very nice.
