4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A huge meringue head. A cloudy orange. This is a nice IPA. Plenty of hops in the body. And a strong bitter dry finish. Great stuff.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours deep amber into an English pint. Off-white micro head with good retention recedes leaving sheet lacing to coat surface. Sour caramel aromas. Soft with sour caramel and resin front to back and into the lasting earthy finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 ounce can - $2.09 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a hazed, golden-amber body in hue with a tall, thickish, off-white head that collapses leaving gooey remnants along the glass walls.
Smell: Threadless smells of honey-brushed, lightly toasty grains, loaf bread with packed, blended hop notes ranging from florals, to grasses, to citrus fruits, to moist pine needles.
Taste: Moderately sweet honeyish tone amidst the toasted barley grains and bread. Then, some orange oil, grapefruit, resinous tones, plus some firm leafiness. Medium-high bitterness. All those hop flavors linger while the maltiness and sweetness quickly drops away leaving a chewy albeit bitter and dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. A bit chewy and creamy, actually.
Overall: Fairly decent India Pale Ale.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy apricot with a fast, tan head.
Scent is caramel, orange, peach.
Taste is a little sticky citrus peel.
Very soft bittering...90 IBU, eh....?...right.
A strong dose of fruit juice.
Tasty, but average.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz can from Crossroads. Poured a cloudy nectar orange body under a dense foamy light beige head. Aroma of oranges, potpourri, tea bagsand some baby aspirin. Chalky medium body with a drier finish and softer to average carbonation. Flavor is citrus rind, old oranges, wet toast, tea, brown bread. Not great but not bad. Straight out of the can would probably make this even better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 ounce can. Nice carbonated pour. Like Cut Throat, malty. Big malt presence. Some citrus. Bit of sweetness that gets a little coying. Overall, decent and drinkable for this particular take on the IPA.

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
from a big 16 oz can. red and black label. Lots of perfume from a overwhelming foaming pour, almost got it all over the floor, ran to the sink, heheh. Head goes 4 inches rocky crag. Foam mustache fer sure. The smell makes my mouth water. Oh my, first taste is double ipa bitter nagging blast, wew, I think the first swig made me a little dizzy, kick me in the jaw. Wow, thiss stuff looks good as you pour it into the glass, lots of rolling carbonation. Yez, each swig knocks my head back, wew. Difficult is a nice word for this terribly on style kicking ass brew. One of the most offensive beers I’ve had in a long time so if you like IPA, you gotta try this batch. Large freshly tarred and chipped tongue I have now. You should see the foam on this, looks like foam that blows off the see in a windstorm. Weird overall beer experience. Hey there are these things floating around in the glass, chunks of stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 01-04-2013 (Can) This beer pours a medium sized smooth off-white head that mostly diminishes, mostly transparent/slightly hazy golden body, slow rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus, earthy hops, fruity, and malt. The flavor is bitter, citrus, earthy hops and malt. The mouthfeel is semi-thick and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a lingering hoppy aftertaste and is a hop head beer. It is worth trying.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Can at Monkey Bar in Philthy, 11/16/13
Aroma: The nose is grassy and hoppy, some pine, earth, citrus, and a hint of butter
Appearance: It pours a heavy golden-amber color with an off-white head
Flavor: The taste is pretty nice and hoppy, but then that buttery malt flavor kicks in
Palate: The body is medium, it has a pretty nice feel, and drinks really easily
I thought this was a good attempt at an IPA with some nice hoppy components to it, but there’s a bit of a buttery malt flavor that just really hampers the quality of the beer overall.
