3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice copper color with a faint white head. Powerful aroma of hops with some malts. Taste is heavily bitter on the back end with some citrus-grapefruit, and sweet malts. Slow drinker, but well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Allentown Brew Works, pre-BCTC beerventure, courtesy of mj. Pours a clear, bright orange color; white head with decent lacing. Dense, nicely resiny citrus hop character in the aroma, but with some sort of sweet, grainy and herbal note. Medium-to-full, chewy hop mouthfeel: dense candy sugar and resiny citrus / fruit hop character; good hops, but sort of an odd, doughy off-note in there as well. Lengthy, citrus hop and doughy finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Allentown brewery. Clear amber orange color, standard CO2 head, medium sized bubbles, no foam. Nose of earthy cannibus and grapefruit hops, some patchouli, a slight BO sweaty note and some pepper in the nose. Bitter wood sap and dry pine tasted along with more of the soapy patchouli hop flavors. Biting and astringent, good but isn’t exactly an upper echelon IPA. The perfume-chemical notes, which are very mild and just barely noticeable, probably need to be cleaned up.

Tap. Cloudy copperish color. Aroma was overpowering of hops. Next to no balance. Very light and the flavor went away as soon as it was swallowed. Could have been better hopped.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
on tap-pours a light tan head with some lacing and copper color. Aroma is plenty of both medium hops-citrus and medium malt. Taste is plenty of both medium hops-citrus-pine-mild bitterness and medium malt-some sweetness-caramel. The bitterness at the finish increases through the beer. Good carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap. This is why i didn’t like IPAs before i started really getting into beer. Poured a cloudy copper color with good head. Aroma was of floral hops and citrus. Flavor missed the boat. Metallic bitter, no balance. Just a bad ipa.

Sampled at the Newtown Brewfest with Stegosaurus and The Mad Indian. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of hops and caramel. The flavor is sweet, citrus, and finishes bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Newtown Brewfest. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a decent off white head. Aroma is light citrus, floral hops, some orange peel and a bit metallic and hardly any malt. Ligth crystal malt backbone in the flavor but mostly just a dull slight citrus hop and some metallic hints and a wierd off bitter finish. Meh.
