3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another flat12 beer poured as a bomb. -huge issue with carbonation though not nearly as bad as the porter. Poured an awesome golden color and once the carbonation settled, it left a nice head and nice lacing. Huge hop nose which is great for a IPA. The grassy hop notes are a bit different than most IPA’s I am used to but was nice! Get this carbonation under control and this will be an awesome IPA!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz brown bottle into a Spieglau IPA glass, thanks David Pole. It poured a hazy light amber with thick white foam, long-lasting with nice lace. Strong hoppy aromas: flowers, honey, caramel, cedar, grapefruit, black currant, cantalope melon. Flavour was nowhere near as good. Overwhelmingly bitter, coarse weediness almost to the point of harsh, not astrigent but getting there. Not enough malt complexity to break through. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, fairly well-concealed alcohol. This seems like the trendy type of bitter IPA from 10 years ago, but I prefer the modern emphasis on flavour and aroma.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a hazy orange yellow with a one finger white head. Aroma is sweet with a nice hoppy, grassy aroma on the nose. Taste is instant bitterness with a really bitter finish. To me, the hops are overpowering what could be a flavorful beer.

Hazy orange pour with white head.Aroma is sweet lemon and hops. Taste follows nose. Too sweet for me, but still good.

12oz. Cloudy orange pour with white ring. Overly bitter hops. Not really my favorite style of IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yeasty bready aroma with some cinnamon, herbs, and a touch of George Clinton. Starts out biscuity and then slams you with hoppy goodness......light to medium on the tongue with a dry finish. Loads of homebrew character......I will find this again!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz draft. This is a weak beer. Deep golden pour, very thin white head, only lasts around rim. Nose is all fresh peeled orange/lime. Flavors of fresh citrus, pine, and medium hops. Very light mouth feel, way too watery. Pass.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint can. Pours yellowish amber. Aroma is big citrus peel, spicy yeast with an almost Belgian character, stone fruit, spicy and grassy hops, slight homebrew funk. Taste is oranges and spice, sweet malts, pine, lingering hop bitterness. Too malty for me but fans of hoppy ambers will like this.

Bottle courtesy of bmoosey - pours dirty brown with a small head. I could tell pretty quick that it was going to have an earthy hop aroma and taste. Has a biscuit and nut taste to it. Medium slick mouthfeel. Not too dry.

Sampled at DLD 2014. It poured an amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of pine and light citrus. The taste was of pine with a caramel backend and a medium body with medium bitterness. Nice.
