2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this beer on 8/23/1999. Color is a medium golden with good carbonation and head. There is a small amount of sediment floating in it. Aroma is a light thin malt scent. Taste is crisp and bitter. It starts with a light body that goes down with a crisp feel and lightly sweet malt flavor. Finish is is very bitter with sweet back tones of malt. It needs more hop flavor but is very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Full Sail Brewery. This brew was a bit too light on the malt to balance it well. A very clean IPA, very light weight to it, and lots of hoppy bitterness. Poured a nice amber color, very clear, with an ivory head and tons of citrus hops in the aroma. Good IPA, but it needed more malt for balance.
