3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden IPA with a thin white head. Rather funky hops, with piney and orange notes. Nice refreshing floral hops in mouth, coniferous and menthol. Rich bodied and smooth. Very well made IPA. Mondial 2006.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a bad little IPA. Golden-amber in color. Light body, very drinkable. Just a little bitterness and a touch of tannins. Not an all-out assault of bitternes; more of a recon that retreats easily for a palatable finish. All in all, good brew for the value.

First is the copper color then you taste the sweet taste of grapefruit, what a nice flavor of fruity malt. You finish with a bit of a bitter in your mouth, just good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
5 ounce sample on tap at Tangletown Publick House in Seattle. Piney, PNW hop aroma with some mildly sweet smaltiness. Typical IPA aroma. Not overly special. Transparent copper color with a whitish head and decent lacing. Piney piney bitter hoppiness to start, without really any malt backbone. Tastes like hop tea. Needs some balance. Not a very enjoyable IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 22 oz, brown bomber bottle with a cartoon Greek god-like figure on the front label, no bottled/freshness date.
Made a good appearance, poured a cloudy reddish hued golden orange with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, minimal amount of sticking, good carbonation.
Had a nose of fruity malts and piney, citric grapefruity and leafy hops.
A crisp, hop textured and smooth medium bodied mouth feel, very good AIPA drinkability.
Quite tasty, a balanced sweet fruity malts and a dry leafy grapefruity hops, a rolling bitterness with a soft numbing of the tongue, some spiciness as well and a dry citric bitter and fruity finish with the hops lingering in the palate.
A really balanced and delicious AIPA, if you like IPA’s. a must try.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
For me, just about the perfect IPA. It’s extremely floral and citrusy in the nose, and the flavor is amazingly hoppy (again, floral and citrusy), without being overwhelmingly bitter. I could drink this stuff all day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A veil of foam shrouds the candy orange gown...Soapy, floral, citrusy hops converse with toasted malts...The silky body efficiently transmits the powerful wooden, resinous bitterness...The slender maltiness fails to interest me, but the hoppiness is well-conceived and pleasant...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2011 Clear golden-copper, large white head, great lacing. Hoppy and tangerine nose. Taste is powerful. Rich body, aggressive bitterness (fresh green hops) and burnt oranges. All that supported by some good caramelized malts. Not the juicy floral type of IPA. I seem to like it more than most other people. I like my IPAs to be as brutal as possible and this one satisfied me. The label could also be used as a cheesy Manowar album cover.
