4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2012 Very floral and citrus hop nose with a surprising malt backbone. Clear deep copper coloured body is topped by a generous and lasting white head that coats the glass with lacing. Nice caramel and toasted malt backbone supports citrus and floral hop flavours. Moderate bitterness keeps the sweetness in check but isnít overly strong. Medium body with decent SPF bubbled carbonation. Lovely palate. Enjoyed on tap at Alibi Room. Not re-rating, but in the bottle I didnít enjoy this nearly as much. It seemed a bit thin and one-dimensional. I would have rated the bottled version (from Liberty - Commercial in June 2012) as much as a full point lower.

Itís some what hard to write this review because once upon a time this beer was outstanding. Iíve followed it since it was first released and seen it morph into something that lacks the beautiful qualities it once had. Bummer, itís just a basic hoppy redish beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a nice cloudy copper, big off white head that left lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruits, floral hops and some malts. Kind of a tropical taste, actually quite sweet and fruity for an IPA (not in a bad way), very nicely balanced with the bitterness of the hops. Interesting beer, very enjoyable.
