3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Mugs Ale House. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt, lots of sweet fruits and grapefruit. Flavor of lots of malt, apple skins, bitter resiny hops in the finish. At first I wasn’t digging it, but it warmed up to me a bit. Good IPA, although it isn’t as hoppy as I generally prefer.

Poured from a growler recently. No specific problems with it, it was a sharp citrusy IPA. We drank it head-to-head against Flower Power, though, and it just didn’t compare.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 Location: Draft at Mugs Ale House, 7/30/11
Aroma: The nose is fairly hoppy, with lots of citrus, pine, and grassy notes to it
Appearance: It pours a clearish amber-red color with a fairly small off-white head
Flavor: The taste is fairly hoppy as well, light malty sweetness, heavier hoppy presence
Palate: The body is medium (plus), average carbonation, slightly creamy, with a dryish finish
It is always good to try another small brewery, which I assume this is, as I can’t recall trying anything from them previously. Anyway, this was a solid IPA for sure, a nice effort at the style, with a crisp and dry feel to it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 On Tap repeatedly at the Dutch. A nice big hoppy full bodied critter that begs you to consume it after the first sip. Body is firm and well supplied by malts. Hops start with a nice grapefruit nose and sharp tang at first taste that opens up the palate for repeated imperial pints.

A - Pours a rich clear copper-orange color with a finger of white head atop. The head fades slowly down to a spotty layer atop the beer leaving behind some nice lacing in the process.
S - Aroma is full of lots of fresh citrus and pine hop aromas. There is also enough malt in the background to provide some balance.
T - Starts off with some nice citrus hop flavor and some malty flavors in the background. Through the middle some bitterness as well as some piney hop flavor comes through. The finish is a mix of some nice hop flavor with some slight bitterness as well as some malt flavor that lingers nicely.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and crisp with very balanced mouthfeel. There is some nice light bitterness and sweet flavors but is also really clean.
D - Very drinkable. Really nice fresh hop profile that has a nice amount of bitterness. The hop and malt profile is really well balanced.
