Pours a slightly hazy bronze. Sweet with a little bit of caramel and cherry on the nose. Flavor a nice bitter bite on the start with huge floral notes and a malty finish. Really nice ipa.

Amber color. Hoppy and floral aroma. Medium-heavy bodied mouthfeel. Good amount of fruity taste. Medium bitterness. Fades quickly into a malty, bread taste.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle dated best by 1/20/14 - about 7 1/2 months past the drink by date.
Aroma - Orangy smelling - not a lot of tropical fruits.
Appearance - Hazy orange with a half finger of head that quickly dissipates.
Taste - Considering the age, not too bad. Slightly caramel flavor, Could probably have a couple, but might get sick of it after a while.
Palate - nice bite at the of the tongue, but it does have that orangy taste to it.
Overall - not my favorite IPA, I am sure it could be better if it wasn’t paste the best by date.

pours dark amber with a thin head which provides good lacing for the entire event. Aromas of grass, and ’toffee apple’ present.
It’s quite lightly carbonated (detrimentally so IMO) tastes spicy and earthy with subdued sweetness and pleasant long bitterness.

Great bitter citrus aroma and taste. Rich amber appearance, minimal head. Mouthfeel is crisp, but maybe a little syrupy. Overall, great beer.

Inversion is rich deep amber colored beer with a small head of white bubbles. Nose is definitely evergreen hops with a hint of sweetness. Taste is tangy at first but finishes with a bit of sweetness and bitterness on the finish. a really nice IPA.

Dark amber colour with a off white almost pale yellow head. Lace stays for days. Unique aroma, mostly bannana, nice though. The bannana follows through into the taste, with hints of malt and toffee in addition. Not as dense in the mouth as I like, but good carbonation and reserved dryness are the saviour here.
