3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Hog Penny: This one poured a hazy, orangish light copper color. There was just a wisp of an off-white head on it. There was some lacing. The nose was quite good, and a little different from a typical IPA. There was a mix of floral, grapefruit and piney hops. Not as upfront as we are used to in an American IPA. The taste is nice. The hop bite is subdued. Get some caramel malts, biscuit, touch of mild fruit. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location/Date:Sample on draft at Frog and Onion Pub, Bermuda on July 18th.
Appearance: Dark copper.
Aroma: Faint hop.
Taste: Medium bitterness, maybe too much malt.
Summary: This beer was listed as an IPA, I guess APA makes more sense. It has a nice flavor but too much malt balance, covering up bitterness.

A surprisingly good IPA. Pours copper with thin head. Quality hop taste that leaves you wanting another.

has a nice hoppy smell, with a medium hop flavor with a citrusy-sweet after taste. Very drinkable.

Chestnut brown beer. Smells of sweet violets. Very heavy orange peel hops, and a sweet lime flavour but both very well ballanced by the malt. Some brown-sugar in the body. Sweet bubblegum/lime bitter finish. Very drinkable
