3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the Bohemian Hall: Pours amber with an off white head that has okay retention. Clean C-hop aroma. Piny, citrusy and some crystal malt huskiness. Light body. Dry and husky flavor. Lots of crystal malt. As it warms it gets more husky and slightly astringent.

Keg @ Alewife, Queens. Pours deep amber with a small white head. The nose is light honeyed bread, some mild fresh citrus, grass. The taste is nicely balanced. Honey short bread, nice malt base with hints of yellow apple. There’s an assertive bitter hop presence in the finish. Light citrus and dried grass. Smooth, easy to drink. Overall, an accomplished, balanced IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Half Pint, Manhattan - 01/03/12.
Golden/Amber colour with a thin off-white head.
Grapefruit and orange zest lead the citrus hop aromas.
Initial sweet malt flavour gives way to the citrus fruits, grassy notes and a good level of bitterness.
Medium bodied and a dry bitter finish.
Decent 6/7% IPA.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice retention, but aroma is very subtle. The first sip lets the hops shine, this beer has a buttery feel to it that I think defines east coast ipas from their west coast counterparts. A grapefruit finish that lingers.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at the brew pub, poured into a cheater pint
a: clear amber color, small 1/4" off white head with good retention, reduces to a cap and lacing rings. Moderatly carbonated
s: pine and citrus, mild caramel, slight biscuit
t: a bitter hop bomb of a beer. Mild sweetness and caramel force its way into the palate. I wish there was more hop flavor to this beer for the high amount of bitterness
m: dry and sticky, I could only handle two beers before mving on.

Tap @ the brewpub w Ronnee on Feb 3. Pours golden-amber with white head. Piney, hoppy aroma, not very strong. Tastes of piney and citrusy hops with a good amount of grapefruit coming through. Not intensely bitter at all but great hop profile. Ronnee even enjoyed.
