3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is cloudy orange. Tan head dies quickly with minimum lacing on glass. Wonderful nose of pine, floral, sugar, caramel, and fresh bakery.
Flavor is of floral hops, grapefruit, and pine. Low carbonation. I love bitter hops, but these are too bitter and overpower the other flavors. This drags the score down.
Also, for this style the alcohol content is too low.

Can sourced from the Duke in Chicago. Pours unclear, rich gold with a creamy, off-white head. The nose holds crackery malts, some ripening orange, bread. Medium sweet flavour with some white gape, melon, pine, more crackers, grass. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly resinous to close, with more bitter grass, light plastic, graham cracker. Eh, doesnít seem too fresh? So so.

Can from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Bought in Can randomly and what a pleasant surprise. Hazy orange body with big head. Nose is hoppy, floral. Very good taste of hops, graperfruit and floral. With just a really nice bitter kick to it. Excellent.

16 oz can picked up locally. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have citrus and resiny hops, a splash of florals, pale, mildly toasted malts, hints of caramel, grapefruit, decent, but other options are available to draw my interest elsewhere.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours copper with a sticky white head. Aroma is very malty, overly so, there is some mild (and faraway) citrus, herbal and pine notes. The flavor is an interesting mash of malt, biscuit, orange peel, prune and plum notes, and very mild bitterness. Itís intriguing, but way too malty to be an IPA. Iím wondering if my can wasnít simply old; Iíve had a couple other IPAs that were almost a match to this after I left them a couple months too long in the cellar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Canned. Pours malty deep color. Off white, slightly beige head. Aroma is resinous pine, very malty sweet toffee, caramel, tangerine and citrus hops sweetness. Flavor is very malty up front. Barleywine sweetness, toffee, caramel, some dark fruits as well. Flavor is tangerine. Bitter finish. I like it but itís more of a hoppy Barleywine than an IPA. Could be an older can? Not sure.
