2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from total wine in Claymont. Pours clear orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma has malty caramel notes, minor citrus. The taste is earthy and malty and hardly resembles an ipa at all. Not good

Poured from bottle, not much life to this one and tasted more like a diet pale with melted ice cubes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange with a strong haze. The flavor starts out with some Strong Floral Hops, Resin and Yeasts. As the beer warms up, it takes on more of a caramel/malty characteristic that gives it a sweeter flavor. Flavor is a bit heavy with some mild carbonation and feels like watery molasses. Itís a decent IPA with a sweet flavor if you allow it to warm up, which alone is worth checking out.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer has a good pour with a nice head and lots of lacing, but after that, it all seems to go downhill from there. The smell is old and stale, and the taste is tart and tangy. Overall, this beer is poor and I would not recommend it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tan and clear with a few small rising bubbles and a fluffy white head with some staying power and pretty good lacing.
Biscuit and floral aromas, not terribly hoppy for an IPA, Iím getting more caramel malts than hops really.
Flavor follows right along. Itís biscuit and caramel malty, with a decent woody piney hops crispness and lightly spicy bite to it.
Could use a touch more carbonation. Light to medium bodied. Slightly slick, alternately sweet and hoppy aftertaste.
Itís probably more of a pale ale to me than an IPA. Not bad, certainly plenty drinkable, but not an especially outstanding IPA. Re-package it as a pale ale and i bet the ratings go up.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy copper-orange with a one finger off white head. Just a little bit of lacing.
Aroma of citrus hops along with a little bit of dark bready malt. Some spicyness to the aroma as well.
The flavor is pretty middle of the road for in IPA. Citrus hop notes fairly well balanced by bready maltiness. There is some biscuit in there along with perhaps a touch of rye spice. Bitterness is moderate for an IPA leading to a clean finish.
Overall, a drinkable beer but nothing really makes it stand out. Worth drinking if you find it but not something I would go out of my way for.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not terrible, but not great either. A middle of the road beer in almost every way. Subtle, unoffensive aroma, slight pine. No real bitterness, no astringency, but a mild, almost caramel character.
