3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is a slightly hazy straw/orange color with a fluffy off white head. Lots of piney hops up front on the nose, a bit of tropical fruit notes, citrus, and a nice kind of bready malt character. Lots of citrus on the taste, some piney hops and tropical fruit, and a hint of alcohol. Medium-light boried, well balanced but not as flavorful as I’d expect from a 7% west coast IPA.

Bottle from a friend. A nice, bright IPA. Deducted points from appearance because it looks the same as any mega-beer.Good aroma of pine and citrus. Taste was refreshing but a little muddy.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grass, grapefruit, lemon), moderately yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Kind of Sierra Nevada styled insomuch as the strong raw yeast aroma goes...very weird that large, professional breweries can’t fix this problem (seriously the vitamin B stink is as strong as the hops). Very resinous, grassy, raw hops too. Not much fun to sniff. Good flavor balance, though...neither too sweet nor too bitter or citric. Overall mediocre.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Mild citrus aromas. The taste follows suit. More mild than the Idiot. Good body and mouthfeel.

little disappointed with this one, had all my favourite hops, cascade, chinook and columbus but didn’t quite do it for me, still good though

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Still yet another 12 oz. bottle purchased at The Beer Store, Nashua NH. Clear amber / orange color, some light head. Aroma is mild tropical fruit and sweet malt.
This could be a victim of sitting to long or taking too long in transit. Another example of why IPA’s should be draft only for me unless it is local. Silly me… Mild tropical fruit, weak citrus with a large amount of sweet bread and caramel. Not much hop punch. Thinner body, standard Co2. If I ever see this on draft I will re-rate it. My impression is it feels like it is a shell of its former self.

Tasted at Willow Park Beer Bash 2014. Unfortunately, there was no time for detailed notes - and I only made it through half my list even so!

Fat på Flying Scotsman Inn.
Klar gyllene vätska med vitt skum.
Doftar barskt av kåda och övermogen frukt.
Den kraftiga beskan dominerar, men sötman finns där.

(Bottle, 0.355 l, at Pikkulintu, 20141103) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium size and white. Aroma had mango, peach and citricness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, mango, peach, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A tasty but too sweet brew.
