3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Brewmasters. Reddish-Orange hue, zero visiibility with mostly diminishing white head, fair lacing. Strong citrus hop on the nose, halfway through it started to smell like a hog or turkey house in North Carolina on a warm day. The taste was a typical strong bitter hop, but it had some strange taste on the finish that I couldn’t pinpoint and I didn’t like it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From can to shaker. Pours a cloudy orange with a nice beige head. Initial smell is a bit grassy with some citrus and hay. Taste is of grapefruit and some other citrus fruits with a very balanced malt presence. Wonderful MF with ample, smooth carbonation. This IPA, like most, starts with great hop/citrus fruit flavor, but this one quickly dissipates and is all bitterness. I am a fan of some very bitter beers but this one finishes with too much bitter and not enough flavor. However, with that said, it is a very good IPA and I wouldn’t hesitate buying it again.

Pours a light copper, hazy, almost white head, no lacing. Nice citrusy aroma, very prominent. Flavor is a nice balance of caramel maltiness and pungent hoppiness. I get predominantly orange from the hop flavor, fading into grapefruit on the finish. The palate is just right, not too thin, not too thick. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can poured into a snifter. A- Grassy bread malt with mild herb and citrus notes. A-Amber orange hue with a slight off-white head that disappears quickly. Lacing is minimal and slight haze density. T-Initial malt taste is small amounts of caramel, hay, grass. Hop character is herbal, some lemon and citrus. P-Carbonation is pleasant, sweetness of malt is moderate that pulls to the back with nice bitterness and dryness. O-Enjoy this unique malt for an IPA. Really nice to have this much bready and cereal quality for a tweak more citrus hop character for what I would initially classify English based on the more prodominant herb and grassy tones. Very enjoyable.
Aroma-pleasant grassy, herb, and Citrus
Appearance-Nice Orange, lacing should show better health
Taste-Enjoy Malt uniqueness with Herb & Citrus hop character
Palate-Good mouthfeel. Sweetness to bitterness enjoyable
Overall-A very good mix and hybrid of British & American IPA qualities.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 16oz can. aroma is of citrus, grapefruit, pine, and sour caramel. Color is of an orange hue that is hazy in color with a lots of sediment. It definitely could use some cleaning way to much sediment. Taste is citrus,pine some soft grapefruit notes malt flavors are sour caramel and has some off flavors like butter and other sour notes. Lots of bitterness here. It feels oily and and clings to the palate leaves a soapy taste in back of throat. Moderate carbonation. Overall, not one I would seek out to try again very mediocre.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
6/5/12- Pours a bright copper with an off white 2f head. Strong aromas of resin, floral, pine hops and a light malt sweetness. Upfront it's middling and well carbonated, before revealing harsh bitter and slightly metallic notes of resinous hops mingling with some caramel malts. Lingers a long time with some soapiness that just won't go away. Starts off well with the aroma, but it's a mixed bag after that. Needs more balance, but it's decent overall.
