jkwood04 (3950) - Connecticut, USA - APR 1, 2012
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel malts and some citrusy/floral hops. Flavor about the same with some not mixing well. Average texture. A decent beer.

JFGrind (1845) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2011
I’ll join the club, draft @ Delaney’s Tap Room. Citrus aroma, medium amber bodied IPA. Citrus in the mix of flavors and the one flavor that stands out.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Draught at Delaneys. Pours copper with a thin off white head. Smells of pepper, citrus, caramelly. Tastes of citrus and spicy with an earthy finish.

Sammy (8660) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2010
Draft at Delaney’s. Serviceable IPA. An understated bitterness, drying. Orange body with some white head.

desurfer (1219) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Draft at Delaney’s in New Haven, CT. Nice amber color. One-dimensional in it’s Cascade-y hoppiness, but that’s what I’m looking for in a quaffable IPA and this fits the bill perfectly.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
nimbleprop (4880) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2009
12oz bottle pours a translucent copper amber with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma is a little understated, some light maltiness, crackers, lemons and some orange zest. The hops come through better in the flavor, a little piney, some lemons, with a strong malt back bone, caramel, sweet dough, some toasted grains, nice sweet malts. Finish is medium bodied and smooth. Kick a little more into the nose and you’d have something very very nice. Even as is, I think this is underrated.

   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
jimhilt (2403) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Pours a three finger cream head that fades slowly, leaving some lace. Cloudy brown/amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Piney hops and paint thinner nose. Flavor starts with sweet malt but quickly goes to hop and finishes with a paint thinner aftertaste. IPAs are not my favorite but this one needs a lot of work. Overpriced at $1.50 for a 12oz bottle from Manchester Wine and Liquors Manchester, CT.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Poured a hazy copper color. Worty aroma with some citrus notes. Malt start to the flavor. Citrus with a mild bitterness on the finish. Light bodied.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
rocbyter (1898) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Malt and hop aroma. Very hazy orange color with a small off white head. Malty beginning quickly developing a light hop finish.

2.8
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
beerbill (3414) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2008
Bottle shared by fredandboboflo. Pours a hazy dark amber gold. Weak aroma of caramel and pine. Very strong pine flavor with an extremely weak malt backbone. Over-hopped and overdone.
