3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours reddish-orange with a large white head. The aroma is resiny hops with some citrus notes. The flavor is resiny hops and something that resembles grapes. Low to medium bitterness. Medium carbonation and thin-medium mouthfeel. A decent American IPA, but nothing special.

Draft. Solid IPA with a powerful yet restrained hop profile. Citrus and pine notes prevail, with some mild stickiness in the aftertaste. A reasonably high ABV adds some extra punch.

Super bitter with a great finish, this beer pours an amber color with a good head. I love Flying Dog Pale Ale and I was looking forward to this being an extreme version of that beer. Unfortunately, it fell a little short and is not quite as well balanced and the Pale. Still a very good example of an IPA.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A delicious IPA. Has an amazing aroma. I cannot quite place it. It might be a combination of the citrus, pine, and toffee. But regardless, great aroma. That appearance is your average IPA, amber - red haze. Thin head. A compelx taste, balance of sweet and bitter, where bitter ultimately dominates, as with any IPA. However, there is an added element present. The pine may be doing it. Creamy body. Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Darker blond to amber coloured beer with no carbonation and a small white head. Fruity and strong hoppy hinted aroma. Full creamy palate. Finish is bitter hoppy, rather dense beer with a stronger dry hoppy bitter ending. Strong but balanced IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
All skunk to the nose with hints of passion, orange, guava. Sweet and then when you swallow a bitter orange hit with full tongue dryness and a tickle in the throat. There is something slightly cheesy running through this.
