3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Quite a mellow IPA with a quite caramel:y flavour. Not much on the hops front, but then I might have overdosed on the superior Great Divide Hercules a bit lately.

Bottle. Clear light red colour, thin laking head. Aroma of citrus,malty,dust, some caramelly nose in the end. Flavor is almost the same, but had a thin citric/caramelly mouth feeling.Short citric/caramelly finish. Ive had expected moore hops than this. Reminds me moore than a bitter, as RB is definis it.

Draft. Poured a clear medium orange color with a white head. Smelled of hay and subdued citrus accented by a whiff of graham cracker. Body was on the light end of the spectrum. The flavor profile included the likes of light caramel, graham cracker, and minimal citrusy hop.

This was hiding in the back of my beer cellar, and I think it has been there a while. Poured a rich ruby color with a nice white head, and good lacing. Smells fresh, with nose of citrus hops and light malts, Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor of caramel malts and citrus hops, and the finish in long and nicely bitter. Good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Iím not sure how this rating sneaked past me, but I found my notes scribbled on the back of the peeled label in my disorganized collection. Anyway, this poured a clear orange amber with a moderate white head. Mostly sweet and earthy malt aroma, with the earthy and floral hop character rounding out the palate.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Had this beer on 1/23/2003. Aroma is very light for an IPA with only a faint scent of malt. Color is a pale golden brown, carbonation is light with a good head. Taste is lightly malty and bitter. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a mild crisp bite. Finish comes on with an imported malt taste that is followed by a moderate bitterness and a very faint hop flavor. There is basically no hop flavor, the bitterness is bland and not much flavor on the malt. Just not a good Pale.
