2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy medium amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (apricot, resin, grapefruit/kumquat), with light notes of mango, sour/decaying vegetable matter (onion, celery), butter.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Odd name for this one...itís more of a malt onslaught than anything, at least in the mouth (the nose is certainly very fruity-hoppy). Very sugary-syrupy sweet. Some off notes in the nose hurt the aroma score. More apparent alcohol than expected...tastes closer to 8%. Comes off more like an American Strong than an IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amber color with a thin off white head. Piney, floral nose. Some citrus notes in the flavor but this is really a piney and floral IPA. Long bitter orange peel finish. Interesting IPA.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy caramel with a medium tan head...lt sediment throughout. Aroma has resinous pine and sweet caramel. Flavor has lots of sweet caramel and some earthy/piney hops...biscuity. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/bitter and dry. Far too sweet and malty behind the hops for my taste.

12 oz can. Pours a deep copper color with a thin head. Pungent and fresh citrus hop aroma (oranges, lemons, grapefruit) with sweet caramel malts. Medium body with a slick texture. Flavor is a nice punch of bitter hops balanced well by sweet malts. Smooth, semi-dry finish. Nice!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent IPA...Pours dark, no head, relatively low carbonation. Nose has a nice piney bite, but the palate falls a little flat comparatively...hops donít hold through the beer as much as they should. Drinkable, not remarkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice hop aroma with a little citrus. There is a nice biter hop front and a sweet follow but I canít quite place it. Good stuff.
