2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had it in a New York restaurant (Tipsy Parson). Very standard IPA--nice complexity, nutty, earthy, on the bitter side, amber colored. It was fine to drink but nothing that I would care to have again.

The aroma is great, but everything afterwards is a bit of a letdown. Overall, it's an average beer. I wouldn't get it again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank out of a bottle. Aroma is kind of toasted with caramel touches while the aroma is not typically IPA style. Taste of roast and some minor hoppiness. Nice beer but surprised on the IPA etiquette.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours dark copper with offwhite head. Aroma is caramel and toasted malt; really not picking up much hops in the aroma. Taste is sweet - again the caramel malt followed by some slight bitterness. Not nearly the level of hoppiness I’d expect from an IPA. Nice chewy body with some slickness to the mouthfeel. Tasting blind, I’m not sure I would have even guessed this was an IPA, it’s so malt forward. This bottle was given to me and I don’t see a date on it, so possibly an old bottle.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - Pours a crystal clear amber color with a 1.5 finger tan head. The bubbles hold up for a descent amount of time.
S - Rich crystal malt, pine, herbal hops, doughy yeast, ruby red grapefruit juice.
T - Toasted biscuit, pine and herbal hops rides along the sweet malt and sticks to the teeth and gums. Some bitter lime peel, cranberries, and pecan shell comes out on the finish. The malt carries through but dries out on the finish.
M - Medium to full body, medium to moderate carbonation.
Slightly aggressive malt background but other than that a balanced and straight forward beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Effervescent orange beer with a short lived white head. Floral hop nose with something oddly vegital in the back. Highly carbonated. Caramel sweetness with some buttered toast, orange peel, and some berry. Not a big hoppy IPA.
