2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A more than honest white sheet covers the clearish dark gold. Underneath the foam, shy citrus (orange, tangerine) and earthy spiciness hint at an eventual lack of freshness which gets more obvious in mouth, but having bought the undated bottle two weeks ago, Iím not convinced itíd be so much fresher out of the brewery. Calm, not very active carbonation accentuate the already slick, sweet cerealic textures with strong grainy accents and stale caramelly bread maltiness. Evasive finish with moderate bitterness that provides little in the way of brightness. Not recommended.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Ed, shared @ Bobbyís house. This is a gusher...that ainít right. Golden pour with a big white head. Smells of celery, club soda, and green apple. Tart, oxidized, and overall not very good on the nose. Flavor is acidic/tart. Lots of celery and vegetal notes. Green apple, club soda, paper, and grass. Fairly bitter, too.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pour a clear copper body with a one finger foamy beige head. The nose is more caramel malt than hops, what hops are there are a mix of citrus and floral notes. The flavor is rather harsh and bitter, a little too brash and bitter for my tastes. The sweet caramel malt at the base is there, but it just doesnít stand up to the huge bitterness. Medium bodied and fairly heavy with fizzy carbonation. Tough for me to down a whole pint of this guy, and I like hoppy beers.

Low profile in flavour and taste. Amber color, clean and bright. I thing it's not the delightful IPA for everydays!

12oz bottle. Pours a golden orange color with a fluffy one inch white head. Light aroma of grassy and citrus notes. The initial flavor was lightly hopped with lemons, grapefruit and oranges. There was a sweet maltiness that finished with a dry grassy hopping. Lite and thin body with average carbonation.

Bottle thanks John! Pours clear amber orange with a nice frothy sudsy white head that slowly settles with lacing. Aroma is earthy floral hops with a hint of spruce and malt. Taste is bitter floral earthy hops and a malty balance. Palate is thin and chalky with a dry crisp finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of sharp grassy hop, slight citrus and lemon zest. Pours light amber with a big foam head. Taste is super bitter but not too pleasant. Grassy notes with slight resin and bitter rind. Bitter and IPAish but not pleasant.
