2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours copper from the tap with a trim white head of foam. Smells, tastes, and looks like an IPA, which is to say that it prominently features hops and lacks any other distinguishing characteristics.

Tasted 3/13/07 at the bar. Poured in a cold glass so it had to warm before I drank it. Full body with medium hop characteristics. Nice hop nose and full body. This is a decent IPA and is usually very consistent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2008 Draft at the brewpub. A very good IPA. Lots of hoppy citrus on the aroma. Fell off a bit on the flavor with just a touch of soapiness. But overall, it was good. Still liked the Hefe the best, and that is strange for me.
