3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Great balance of citrus and hops. Not overpoweringly hoppy. Refreshing, hides the alchohol well with citrus. Very appealing color. Overall, not a unique IPA, but pretty darn good after any strenuous activity.

Bottle. Light clear pumpkin colored pour with a nutty and hoppy nose. Nice strong malt backbone, bitter grapefruiit and woody hops. All around solid IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask version @ In De Wildeman. Orange colored, hazy. Resin, resin and resin aromaís, later with citrus/grapefruit. Flavor is malty & quite bitter. Long and pleasant bitter finish. Imo the cask version brings out the aromaís & flavors better than the regular keg version. Great IPA.

Very nice too, the problem is that I get a lot of bad feelings in the stomach after too much U.S. hops.

Ran into the "Snake Dog" recently. Highlights include a nice, crisp, citrus aroma paired with some serious--but smooth--bitterness. Nice IPA that I would like to encounter again.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I really really liked this beer, IPA is my favorite so I am biased, but experienced I would say. Very nice offering, really good hoppy flavor, clean refreshing, delicious. Nice color, but smell and taste are very nice. Tastes like an IPA should. The palate wasnt overwhelmed, it was just enough. I liked it alotttt. Try it out if you like crisp, hoppy straightforward flavor

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
G: Poured into a Stone Arrogant Bastard ping glass.
A: Slightly copperish; more the color of grain--doesnít appear as "heavy" as the typical IPA. Decent single-finger head to start off, although this dissipates quickly, leaving a little bit of lacing.
S: Slightly hoppy. Not much citrus, and a little bit of pale malt. A tiny bit of amber as well.
T: Quite malty. I would say that there is a decent balance, although I think this tends a little too much toward malt for the style. With the hops, Iím not getting all that much--I donít know where the 60 IBUís are. The malt is slightly biscuity.
M: Smoothe with light carbonation. Mellows in the mouth.
D: Drinkable enough, nothing too special. Iíll try this on tap if I see it, just to see if itís any different.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Caramel malt mixed with resinous, pine/spruce aroma and flavor. The resin flavor really comes out well and washes into a nice bitter finish. I canít wait to open another!
