4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2009 One of my favorite IPA’s. The aroma you get when poured, very good. The flavor of this beer, well just try it. If you dont like hoppy beers than don’t bother. I rank this right up there with DogfishHead 60min IPA

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky brown body with thin head. Minimal lacing. More of a malty aroma than the punch of hops I was expecting. Some citrusy hops are noticeable. Bitter hop flavor up front that is balanced out with citrus notes. Overall, drinkable, but nothing to write home about.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber-orange with a half finger off white head which fades to very little lacing. aroma is of pine, floral hops, citrus, sweet malts, caramel, light bready malts, and some toffee. Taste is about the same as the aroma, with the malt notes dominating. Has a medium body with a semi watery mouthfeel, with a semi bitter, slightly dry, medium-short finish. Overall, a decent English style IPA that is lacking a bit in complexity and body.

Light copper color with an off-white head. Fruity hop aroma, maybe a hint of tropical fruit. Not very bitter on the palate. Some maltiness on the palate. Easy drinking.

Draft @ renaissance, PHL. Sought hoppy aroma. Medium Amber color, nice lacing. Hoppy taste, a little piney with a touch of citrus. Bitter aftertaste. Appropriate body, medium. Overall not a bad IPA, but Middle of the road.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma has a good bit of dry leaves and toffee without sweetness...some earthy hops. Flavor follows suit...balanced leaning toward Malty. Mouthfeel is light / medium and the finish is earthy / malty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[on tap at Local 50, PHI airport]
Perfumy hops aroma with some cereal grain and caramel malt; apricot and light pine accents. Clear light bronze under a persistent, thin, lacy white sheet. The malt flavour is darker than it looks, with pumpernickel and bread crusty caramel, complimented by bitter grapefruit pith, pine, and apricots. Medium body, moderate carbonation, midway between crisp and smooth.

"RJA was pretty spot on with this one. Not hoppy enough, too dark for an ipa, and a little too much sweet malty aroma, flavor and body for an ipa. below average beer - no need to revisit."

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very refreshing IPA. Not too heavy on the palate, perfect carbonation, floral and citrus notes from the hops. The malt bill is appropriate.
