3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Description is pretty spot on but color is a brilliantly clear light copper. Aroma is a clean citrus with slight tropical as described, some resiney hops. Orange notes. Nice strong fresh hop. Taste is hoppy with a fairly strong bitter, piney grapefruit like. Caramel malts-medium, fairly dry finish, light medium sweetness. Good hop aroma flavor and bitter for an ipa. Taste has a tad bit of old off-yeastyness to it however. Overall a pretty good standard ipa but not near a favorate.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours amber colored, clear with 2 inch white frothy head that lingered and left some web-y lacing. Aroma is all hops and very pleasant. I got a lot of grapefruit and other citrus with some floral notes as well. Taste is similarly a lot of citrus and hops flavors. It has a medium body, a little fuller than most single IPA’s I’ve had.

Bottle from RobertDale, thanks man! Aroma has nice stinky hop notes of citrus, tropical fruits, resin and herbs. Medium clear amber hue with a small white head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is medium sweet and very bitter. Palate is medium bodied and watery soft. Overall a solid IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014 12oz. bottle supplied by WillRunForBeer—thanks! He hated this: he was like, "just a malty IPA". Poppy seeds, multi-grain bread, lemon zest, earl grey tea, and marsh rosemary grabbed from liquid. Bitter orange peel and American ale yeast by swallow. Super drinkable; smooth and becoming. We finished this rather quickly. We needed more shit to slay. #boost level 5.5, and rising.

Aroma is on the thin side. Leaves a thin even layered head in the glass. Taste is smooth and definitely not overpowered for a winter ale. Respectable offering.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear old copper pour with a 2 finger creamy off white head. Aroma is loaded with sweet citrus and mango and passion fruit forward tropical fruit, floral and light toasty malt. Flavor is lightly sweet caramel and biscuit up front, sweet fruity esters, some citrus, tea like, earthy and light tropical fruit hops, kinda plain compared to the aroma. Light to medium body, neutral to slightly syrupy, but dry feel and light, but blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation. Good stuff overall, but it’s one of those IPAs that smell really good at first, then are a little disappointing at first sip, then the best parts of the aroma seem to fade away as well leaving a good beer that is still somewhat disappointing. Sorta flash in the pan scenario.

Pours clear copper with active carbonation, off white head. Aroma is strange, never smelled a beer like it, maybe the yeast? it has a bit of citrus, maybe a little coriander, and alot of spiciness to it. I don’t really know how its at all a IPA but it is interesting and pretty good.
