3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at the Fells Point Brew Pub, 9/6/09
Aroma: Some citrus, hops, a bit spice, some floral essence in there as well
Appearance: Clear golden color, lots of lace on the glass
Flavor: A nice hoppy flavor with a good amount of spice and caramel malts for backing
Palate: Medium bodied brew, lingering flavor
This was a pretty average IPA, not great, not bad. Something you could drink no problem, but not something you’d go out of your way for. Try this one at DuClaw as you are sitting outside enjoying the view.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Arundel Mills in Mar 2008: Pours a transparent deep bronze with a thin coating of stringy-lacing white head. Has a fresh piny grapefruity hoppy nose with sweet pale malty undertones. Starts with decent fullness and sweet toasty caramel and pale malt before a crisp, bittersweet finish. A pretty nice IPA with good grapefruity citrusy hoppy notes.

Solid beer - nice gold color. Both the taste and aroma is citrus hops. Could be hoppier though, not as good as Venom.
