3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Gold with a thin white head. Aroma is a little odd, definite chinese food with a hint of manure and rubber. Odd as that sounds it was pretty nice smelling. Obvious hop presence, dry and spicy with a slight hint of garlic perhaps? Quite different for an IPA and nice enough.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice copper color with a big fluffy white head with plenty of lace. Nice citrus aromas, with some pine sap, and some grainy malt. Flavor is lemony and citrusy, the bitterness is not terribly intense but is certainly present. Nice caramel flavors, along with some floral notes. Not too bad.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very good IPA. Just a touch of bitterness, but otherwise one of the better ones that I’ve had so far.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light amber color. Floral lightly citrus aroma, strong acidic hops dominate. First sip was like a punch in the face(maybe I’ve been drinking some weak IPAs lately?), very strong bitter hop flavor, pine dominant, was hoping for a bit more complexity but overall a strong IPA candidate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a - I kid you not - drive-through liquor store in Walsenburg, Colorado. Sharp, acerbic hops dominate - citrus and pine resin. Copper color, decent aroma... nice and bitter, far better than anything else I could have found in this town - still nothing to shout home about.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted in Keystone Colorado. Pours a nice copper color, with sustained white fluffy head. Palate is fairly diluted though, slight soapy feel in the mouth with cheese cake like elements.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught, Rigbys, Liverpool. Pleasantly surprised by this effort, which was much better than i remembered its previous incarnation to be. Good lookin’ amber colour with a slight haze and a medium off white head. Fragrant aroma with a lorra lorra hop action goin’ down. One big swig later and yes, this is an IPA straight outta the top drawer. A good amount of grassy resinous hop dances with just the right dose of malt to create a balanced and great tasting brew. All hail the snake dawg.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2011 THIS BEER POURS BEAUTIFULLY GOLDEN ORANGE WITH A SOAPY LOOKING UN-IPA LIKE THICK HEAD. SMELLS OF SLIGHT TOASTED GRAPEFRUIT WITH A HINT OF RUBBING ALCOHOL TASTE IS MORE BITTER THAN SWEET NOT VERY IPA LIKE, CRISPY AND REFRESHING BEER THAT IS GOOD BUT NOT GREAT. IN THE AGE OF THE MICRO BREW WITH HUNDREDS OF BEERS TO SELECT FROM I CANNOT SAY IM VERY IMPRESSED WITH THIS COMPANY YET .
