3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the better Indian Pale Ales I have had. Wish we could get this beer in Tennessee, but as with it seems most good beers, you canít.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle - Pours golden with a white head. Aroma has floral hops with a little malt backing it up - mainly hops here though. Medium bodied bodied with sharp carbontion. Taste is sharp with not much malt to speak of - very hoppy. Floral spicy hops mainly. With the lively carbonation mixing with the spicy hops this comes off even more spicy and biting - it this case that is a good thing. While this isnít the most complex IPA out there, everything that is here is good. A nice enjoyable IPA.

Pours deep golden with a long lasting off=white head. Subdued pine scent, some metal as well. Good hop flavor with a touch of grapefruit. Decent bitterness. Another good IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden brew with medium thick small bubbled head. Good sticky lacing.
Nice hoppy smell. A little milder smell than I expected. A slight metallic aroma.
Nice hoppy taste. A little too much malt for an IPA. For the most part well balanced but there could easily be more hoppy flavor in this one. Slightly grainy finish.
Smooth feel. Dry bitter finish. Enjoyable but missing a little something...

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2006 Pours a nice straw orange color with a creamy head that dissipated pretty quickly. Aroma has a nice balance of malt and spicy hops. That taste is surprisingly very smooth with a bitter fruity aftertaste that lingers. I really enjoyed this IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of ross. Pours a hazy orange with a large mostly lasting creamy off-white head. Nice aroma of citrus and pine hops along with some malt. Flavourís also hoppy along with some sweetness to balance it out and a nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. This is a really good and refreshing IPA -- great stuff!

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2006 I was pleasently suprised by how good this was. This IPA really is as good as any other American IPA Iíve had. Huge hop aroma and huge citrusy grapefruit aroma. Has all the best qualities that an IPA has that I enjoy.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2006 A lot of citris taste that hits you hard mid palette. Very clean but hoppy finish, just too much citris for me, but a good beer.
