3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this on tap at Fall for Greenville this year. Easily the best beer available at the festival, but still a little disappointing. Having heard good things I was expecting a great beer, but was left unimpressed. Medium orange color, a little pine/citrus flavor, pretty hoppy. Tasted quite bitter. Would buy again but was not blown away.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled many times at the Capitol City Carnival, 2007. Clear medium copper with off-white head. Nice centennial/cascade hop nose. Flavor has a light caramel base then a medium-strength dose of piney citrusy PacNW hops. Very smooth, tasty and drinkable with non-harsh yet ample hop bitterness. Medium bodied with an easy-drinking texture and moderate carbonation. The kind of IPA you can drink all night. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on draught at the Capitol City Carnival 2007. Pouts to a bright, deep golden to amber color, with a tall, rocky, white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is fragrant, with good citrus aromas of grapefruit and lemon. The palate is firm, with good biscuit and caramel malt flavors, paired with a nice back drop of candided lemon/grapefruit flavors. This beer finishes with more good pale and caramel malt and citus hop flavor up front, then ends with a zesty punch of grapefruit and lemon hop bitterness that lingers. Well done AIPA with lots of hop aromas, flavors, and bitterness. Well done, and a nice drinking AIPA.
