3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12oz). Clear amber, large foamy beige lasting head. Light aroma - resin/funky dry hops, hint of leafy malt. The taste is restrained, slightly soapy, hint of pine and citrus, light juicy malt backing; weak body, light astringent bite, not much carbonation, quick finish, clean linger. Drinkable, not really very hoppy though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a amber with a soapy white head. Aroma is deffinatly hoppy with some mild malts. Flavor is just not hoppy enough to get me excitied about this. More of the crystal malts come out then the hops used. Deffinatly not a hop bomb but it was a cheap six at only $4.99.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle poured into pint glass. Dark amber colour with a tall, creamy off-white head. Definitely hops in the aroma and flavour but rather mild. No real characteristic to the bitterness, just bitter. Okay IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2008 Pours a dark amber with a white head. Has a strong hoppy aroma. Also has a strong hoppy taste. For me Indian Pale Ales have a very narrow tast difference range so it is very similar to a sweetwater or Dogfishhead IPA. I drank this out of a shaker.

2.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A thick off white head tops this amber brew. Mouthfeel is soft with a nutty malt underbelly. Aroma is rather subdued for an IPA, but the hops are there, ending in a long mildly bitter finish. While certainly on the mellower side of IPA, this is a well-balanced version with easy drinking appeal.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a medium orange-amber with a good amount of whitish head. Aroma is mild and hoppy. Flavor is a bit bland for an IPA. A little metal, a few notes of grapefruit, some lingering hoppy aftertaste. OK, though probably not bold enough for a true IPA fan.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 9-12-07 bottle. For some reason - this smells a little bit like Chinese Food to me. Bitterness just isn’t there. Tastes like stale malt. Nothing exciting or unique about this beer. Leaves a dreadful coating on the tongue.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice Piney aroma, honey in color with a soapy looking head. Not as bitter as some IPAs I’ve had but it finishes clean and is very drinkable & sparkling on the palate. A solid effort...
