3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours copper with a decent amount of white head and some lacing. Excellent hoppy aroma. Medium body. Tastes of citrus and hops, but I would have liked a little more. Not quite as in your face as the aroma is, but still a pretty good IPA

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Iíve had IPAís that were very sharp, harsh, perfumy and snappy bitter - too much so. This one is different. Everything seems right on. The Aroma is all hops. Appearance is dark gold/amber with fine bubbled foam. Taste and mouthfeel are wonderfully hoppy, smooth and soft with a dry finish. Not astringent at all. Hop flavor is flowery and lingers on the palate. This is an IPA and hops rightly dominate and overshadow malt. Finest IPA Iíve ever had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2012 Bottle at about 6 weeks old. Amber orange with an off white head. Big hoppy aroma, with piney, spicy, and citric notes. The flavor is relatively well balanced, with some grassy and citric hop notes and a light malty swetness. Very nice.

Bottle. Golden color, lasting white head. Piny hop aroma. Bitter hoppy flavor with grapefruit and biscuity malts. Dry finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Not a bad beer, but just not my thing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
( 12oz bottled on 7/22/08 reviewed 6/4/09 - thanks to bobby91w and sprinkle) Pours a beautiful orange color, full 1 finger head with thick oily bubbles that recede quickly, but coats the top of the beer most of my drinking session. Lacing on the glass is pretty nice as well. Smell is absolutely delicious. Itís floral, very citrusy, but the hop notes have subsided quite a bit. Taste is not even as hoppy as a pale ale at this point, but still a very good beer. Nice sweet malt backbone here, notes of hops are there but no bitterness whatsoever, even some caramel malt here because the hops are so subdued. Body a little thinner than expected, decent carbonation, not enough creaminess or oilyness that I prefer in an IPA.
