1.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
no aroma from a amber body with a small white head.Some hop biterness and some honey undertones and a touch of malt in the finish from a very thin body. No way you cold even come close to considering this an IPA.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Not one of Gearyís finest brews. When you have HSA as a winter stalwart why did you go and brew this?

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle: Aroma is a little off and mostly malt. Light caramel with just faint hops. Pours a transparent light amber with a quickly diminishing white head. Light malt up front with caramel and some other funky flavor that is really unpleasant. You can say it finishes hoppy, but itís not a good hop flavor. As far as IPAís that Iíve rated, only Redhook is worse.

My friend Matt brought this one to me from a trip to Maine. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium golden color with a small white head. The aroma was sour and tangy with not much good going on. The flavor was bitter, tart and a bit tangy. Not good at all. I was surprised to see it listed as an IPA as there was not real hop presence.
