3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Date tasted: July 13, 2013 at Bea McNally’s in Hackettstown, NJ... Glassware: pint... Occasion: celebrating a good round (aesthetics more than scores) of golf with bro Jer and Matt....Appearance: dark amber body; slow/low effervescence; thick white head that holds a finger solidly... Aroma: bright, sprucey hops; a backbone of mellow malts keeps the profile a bit unbalanced... Palate: full-bodied, effectively working the whole mouth--a good prelude for a spicy nacho appetizer...Taste: malts are in full effect, belying the IPA style this purports to be--almost an ESB underlying its hoppy flash; the pale hops build their intensity as the glass drain... Overall: aside from Matt’s sarcasm concerning the language of the beer rating world--or just me--the drinking experience was a smooth, fitting finish to a good day of golfing, with a solid strength; not so EVIL as it is EVOLVED, a pleasantly drinkable beer that subtly pushes its 6%ABV...only reservation is that it doesn’t consistently present as an India pale ale....

Meh. Nothing special here. If there is nothing else around it’s okay. Certainly not worth craft beer prices. Aroma is meh citrus...taste is meh citrus + malt... finish is meh...crush it and be done...the trash truck driver in our neighborhood loves honking his truck’s horn...

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a hazy gold. Has a citrus, hop, grain and pine aroma. A bit grainer than expected with little citrus hops. A bitter malty aftertaste

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Black Squirrel’s NKOTB event pours a clear orange with a ring of white head. Nose has orange, soap, heavy grass, heavy pith. Flavor is harsh, overly pithy, a touch industrial, a faux sweetness too. Astringent finish. This needs work.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, golden color. An off white head that remains. Complex, sweet scent. Some grapefruit hops but not too overwhelming. Some sweetness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Bainridge. Pours brownish gold with small to medium white head . Aromas are rye, pine, ash, light copper. Flavor is dry and bitter with a good bit of carbonation to it. Nothing special about this offering but it’s not as bad as the ticks imo. Drank this with some bubblegum and blueberry Martian juice and wasn’t too terrible...just bad. Cheers

Mediocre brew with a lot a room to grow. This one is a simple standard brew with nothing that I can comment that sets it apart for its competition. A re-work of the recipe is needed to give this one some new life!

Slightly amber hued golden pour with marginal head and some lacing. Grass/earthy notes with faint citrus in the nose and flavor, has a soapiness to it. Easy drinking, but nothing spectacular.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not a particularly good pale ale I picked up in Asheville in 2015. Stale aroma, mild and forgettable. Citrus aroma dissipates quickly.
