3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a snifter. Golden to amber with a finger of head that held well.
A blunt citrus; mostly lemon smell. There is a malty smell lurking in the background but he never really comes out to play.
Greeted with a medium bitterness, followed by honey and grapefruit. A balanced, straightforward profile.
Crisp, bubbly and medium bodied.
This is an easy drinking IPA. When you are looking for a classic IPA to throw back, here it is.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle acquired by trade with martinvanbeer. Thanks! The beer is a hazy copper with a big head of white foam. Very good retention. The aroma has strong resinous and grassy notes. Plenty of herbal notes. The taste is mostly bitter. I find some sweetness is hinted at about mid palate. That actually reminds me a bit of maple syrup. Interesting. Medium body and softer carbonation. Sort of airy on the tongue. Decent beer.

Pours a copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity hops and caramel. Flavor is fruity hops, caramel, and something creamy. Has a surprisingly smooth body for an IPA, with low bitterness, and surprising balance. Pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma...lots of caramel and toffee, citrus. Smells great!!!...Appearance is amber red. It pours with an amazing thick and frothy head. Very nice!!...Taste, yeah, we flopped a bit there. Itís hoppy and bittersweet but more so bitter. It has a noticeable citrus in the taste, and that might make it be a tad too bitter, but still tastes pretty good....Mouthfeel is medium, not too dry. It does have a filmy taste that lingers throughout, weird but not bad....Overall, itís really good. Better than what I expected. I wonder if Slick Willy himself tried it when the Clinton Library opened?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle from BVery, poured into an English pint. Slightly hazy orange with small/medium beige head. Aroma is herbal hops, medium body, medium/light body, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is caramel malt, bread, and some herbal hops. Fresher would probably bump this up a couple notches.

Bottle hunted down for me by my parents - thanks! Clear rich reddish orange pour with a smaller head. Stale hops, spice, bread, and some pine. Would like to try fresher.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"Cascade citrusy hops semi a little muted. More biscuity malt than I like bit not too bad. But the orange and grapefruit hop notes are subdued, making this an average iPa."

12 ounce bottle pours a orange copper color With lots of hop particles with a moderate white head that dissipates quickly. Nice citrus and piney aromas. Light bodied with high carbonation. Nice piney flavor but seems to end abruptly.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Guess Who? Amber pour with a small head. The nose is pretty much non-existent. The absence of aroma. Some caramel and melon if Iím being charitable. The taste has some light pine and lemon hop accents. Strong caramelised orange. Caramel malt body. Medium body, soft carbonation. Tastes old. Still, worse than average for the style.
