3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, Portsmouth Brewery’s guest tap. Has an orange / gold color with thin quickly vanishing head. Nose is floral with hints of citrus and caramel malt. Flavor is me is about average for a standard IPA. Flavor is caramel sweetness, light pine, plenty of floral hops. After the sip I get a lightly lingering grassy note to go with the floral hops. Maybe I have become jaded by huge Imperial brews because this just didn’t stand out to me at all. NOTHING wrong with it, very drinkable but it get lost in my memory of hundreds of IPA’s.

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.

3.6 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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Total Wine, Fairfax 4-pack: Pours amber color with off-white head. Aroma is grapefuit, pine, and fairly hefty malt. Taste is pretty bitter, but is also combined with a caramely sweetness. Ain’t the greatest IPA. I would have prefered it to be less malty.
