3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. [thank you, Yngwie]
Pours a nice hazy pale amber with a 2 cm thich creamy white head on top. Wonderful lacing in big blotches. Aroma is strong, with lots of pine hops, mixing with caramel, grapefruit, light roastiness. Low to medium carbonation and a rather creamy feel. Flavour is relatively sweet at first, lots of caramel and herbal hoppy sweetness. Middle is dry and pine-like hoppy, before a long lingering dry aftertaste of fruity hops mixed with that light roast that appeared in the aroma as well.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A hazy pale amber beer with a lasting white head. Hop aromas are grassy and slightly spicy. The malty aroma is of fresh sweet wort. Both play a big part which is great. a very creamy mouth feel, the carbonation is pretty much perfect for the beer. Awesome balance for my palate at least. Distinctly american but also tradtional in many ways.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear gold with a frothy white head. Excellent hop aroma with pine, apricot and mango. Pleasant tropical fruit hop flavor with some grassiness detracting. A little thin in body. Also, there is a distinct metallic note in the finish. Not a bas IPA but not one I would seek out.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours honey color with small off white head. Very sweet aroma of citrus and malt.
Moderate hop bitterness throughout with a long finish. Other flavors of strong maltyness and fruit. Light to moderate body with a dry finish. Descent IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very lightly hazy orange-gold color. A frothy, off-white head leaves behind thick, sticky cobwebs of lacing. Aromas are very malty, with buttery toffee laying the sweet groundwork for orange citrus hops. Thereís a touch of creaminess and a fresh floral element to the nose as well. Flavors are again malt dominant, yet sufficiently bitter from the citrus hops. Toffee and butter really shine here, right up until the sharp bitter finish kicks in. Medium bodied and slightly syrupy, though not cloying. This is a pretty nice brew, but nothing to get too excited about.

Pours a light golden color with a frothy creamy head that stays for a while. Nice hoppy taste with a little bit of a sour hoppy after taste. I will buy this beer again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Pours light copper with a white head. Aroma of canned mandarin oranges and light pine. Taste is decent, with a nice balance between the sweet caramel malts and the bitter hop finish. Medium mouthfeel, not a bad IPA.

[Bottle] Pours amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma is decent. Hops really arenít too overpowering with a good amount of caramel malt and a lot of grain in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. A decent IPA, but didnít overly impress.
