3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppy, amber, and fairly strong. Not bad, with hints of fruit and a balanced flavor for an IPA. The strength is there, but doesn’t knock you on your butt.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at Capones. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Sweet and malty body (hardly the explosion) with some light pine like accents. Malty with paper (oxidation notes...) hardly hoppy some light earth tones but that might be more dryness from the crystal malt. I dunno what to say, this is ON DRAFT, WTF! Update, looks like i am not alone).

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Capones. I took a sip of this and immediately thought WTF? I don’t know if this batch was off or what but this beer was just not right. Red brown pour with a greyish tan head. Some clove and spice on the nose. Slight citrus flavor. Virtually no hops.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Capone’s. Surprise, surprise, surprise. A decent hop-monster brewed right in the backwaters of PA. Clear amber/orange with a decent head. Aroma of grapefruit and other more exotic tropical fruit. Taste was in your face hop brashness without a lot of syrupy sweetness that plagues some IIPA’s. The high ABV is barely noticible. End is bitter and fairly clean and my growler is going to prove invaluable for the next few nights.

On tap at Allentown. Pours orange with a nice white head. Has a nice citrus hop smell to it. Has a piney, citrus taste to and is actually pretty well balanced.
