3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A floral, subdued aroma. Very light in appearance; minimal head. Mild, but very comfortable, satisfying IPA. Overall, pleasant, but underhanded.

Sample at Dragonmead on 7/23/11. Pours amber in color with a medium beige head. Hoppy aroma that is dank, grassy and earthy. Grain and corn flavor with a dank earthy hop finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Dragonmead. Deep amber, slightly hazy pour. The nose is dull with a soft fruitiness. Light orangey cascade hops. Light worty sweetness along with a touch of astringency on the back. Not really hoppy at all... ugh.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ Dragonmead - sweet burnt toffee and caramel. Not sure how this is an IPA. Sweet and murky but hardly any dry hopping to speak of.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft… RBSG 2010… Hazy amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The restrained bouquet is of caramel and praline with an afterthought of grapefruity hops. Full-bodied and creamy with mild carbonation. More sweet than bitter. Flavorful hops and flavorful malts – caramel and toffee with just a touch of grapefruit bitterness. Bittersweet finish. Tasty, but not much of an American IPA. More of an English IPA using American hops.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Weak Aroma for an IPA, floral. Bitterness was a bit weak. This beer is good compared to most commercial beers but lacks when compared to micro-brewed IPAs.
