3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at GABF 2012. Wished I could have grabbed a six pack of this IPA. Bright and light and nice medium bitterness. Nice orange color in my sample.

Pounder->SA. Hazy orange with small white head. A: sweet fruity hops. T: sweet hops, citrus, orange, pineapple. Bittersweet aftertaste. Sweetness and depth of an imperial IPA, though not a great one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bizarre. Somewhat resinous...some grain and florals...yet very harsh and soapy. Aftertaste is overkill and harsh. Lacks major balance

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Milkboy. Cloudy orange amber pour. Started with a large foamy head but it rather quickly reduced to a thin ring. No lace. Fuzzy oranges. Medium amber fruit. Cantaloupe. Light toast. Blood orange juice. Gently sweet in the middle. Dry lightly spicy finish. Fuller and smoother than most. Nicely constructed.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Tokyo Pub. Pours cloudy orangish copper with off white head. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, floral hops, and some malt. Flavors of light tropical fruit, and citrus hops, but is really dominated by malt base. Really lacking hop profile. Something seemed off and did not seem fresh.

Can. Clear amber with a big eggshell head. Aroma is floral with hints of melon and caramel malt. Taste is similar but adds a roasty and earthy note. A little weird but not awful. Rich smooth mouthfeel. Kind of an odd beer but still enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This really nice IPA poured a cloudy copper color with virtually no head. The nose was well-balanced and inviting, with notes of sweet malt, grassy hops, lemon, grapefruit and a slight touch of wheat. The body was very smooth and drinkable and featured plenty of hops. The flavors are balanced very nicely with some caramel malt and wheat. Besides the floral and grassy hops, I tasted some lemon, grapefruit and pine. The beer finished dry, mellow and creamy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz can. Pours a hazy amber color with a two finger white head that leaves good lacing and falls to a cap. Aroma is apricot, some citrus rind, herbal, grassy, floral hops and a bit of pine, and a decent amount of caramel malt. Flavor is orange citrus, apricot, pine, resinous hops, good caramel malt backbone offering some sweetness, that finishes with good bitterness, and mild alcohol. Medium bodied, creamy, good carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
At Gene’s rooftop. Dark amber for an IPA. Big fruity hops and quite bitter. The bitterness settles strangely in the palate though and while it wasn’t bad I just wasn’t a big fan of this. Serving: Tap
