4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a great IPA! Get it when you have the chance. I found a sixer of this at the Wegman’s at Collegeville. They also have the DIPA, which, now, I can’t wait to try. But back to the No 3. It pours a light copper color with a decent-sized off-white head. The head leaves some nice and sticky lacing around the glass. The nose is a well-balanced profile of caramel malt and flowery hops. The flavors start out that way, but about halfway through, turn toal hops. The hops aren’t completely dry and spicy though. I get a lot of tropical fruit, herbs, lemon, orange and grass. The beer finishes really well-balanced, with notes of bread, caramel, yeast, grass, pine and fruit. Excellent IPA!

A good IPA for the summer. Very enjoyable, but not my favorite or go-to beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottled February 2013. Served at around 40F.
Pours lightly hazy copper/amber with a one finger off-white head that leaves a ring of lacing and recedes to a small cap.
Aroma is primarily pine, along with earthy & resinous hops, hint of citrus rind, some apricot, decent caramel and bready malt backbone. OK aroma. Good strength.
Flavor is pine, resinous & earthy hops, apricot, touch of citrus, decent bit of caramel and a grainy malt presence, mild to moderate sweetness, strong bitterness, moderate alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, good carbonation.
Solid IPA, but nothing spectacular. Glad to have a chance to try it, but there are better ones out there.

Fantastic, in yo face IPA! Very nice, clean finish. Nicely unbalanced (heavy duty hop character). What an IPA should be.
