3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
very carbonated...bottle cap almost flew off. huge white foamy head and a light honey color. sweetness of the dry hop is very noticeable in the aroma. some pineyness up front but other than that flavor is more balanced and less citrusy than the aroma suggests and the finish brought out a mild metallic flavor and also a bit of stringency.

Thin head of fine white bubbles. Orange and citrusy aroma with some lemon and straw. Very dry and pasty palate. Like taking a mouthful of chalk. Some more orange flavors and loads of bitterness. Herbal bitterness with a bit of peanut skins. Bitter and dry finish. An ok IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2009 Draught.Orange amber color with a thick off white head. Aroma is pine and citrus with an underlying malty sweetness. The mouthfeel is smoother and creamier than I would have expected. A little hoppy dryness up front ,and some sweet fruit notes. The flavor is extremely well balanced. Grapefruit and pine leads to some caramel sweetness. Fairly dry finish with little aftertaste. A nice pale ale.
