2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks nice sitting in the glass. Clear amber color, creamy head, nice lacing. Aroma is nothing to write ratebeer (home) about. The initial flavor has a strange malty sweetness, but the finish has a nice bitter hop flavor. The bottle doesn’t list the bottling date, so age may have affected this beer. Not a standout IPA

12oz bottle from BevMo. Poured clear copper with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hoppy & malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium smooth bitter finish of moderate duration. A solid drinkable beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 25, 2010 Dark orange color; aroma of pinewood and citrus hops, even resin; light to medium body, moderate carbonation; flavor mainly of bitter hops with some caramel-like sweetness. Okay, maybe a bit harsh, maybe too light-bodied, maybe lacking the fruitiness a bit, but okay.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from trade with Capflu. Pours a murky orange color. Filmy head that hugs the glass nicely. Aromas of citrus, bitter hops, caramel, alcohol and a nice floral touch. Fairly bitter with a nice citrus flavor to help balance this out. Nice hoppy backbone to this one. Medium bodied, with a near perfect carbonation level. Slight alcohol taste complements the looooooong bitter finish.
