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.

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. Flavour’s 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 I’ve 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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz Bottle: Pours a mostly clear honey color with a medium size frothy off-white head that is mostly lasting. The hoppy spicy aroma is fruity with hints of citrus and pineapple. Flavor is sweet and fruity with pineapple and grapefruit finishing with a lime bitterness. This beer is very refreshing to drink since the hops do not overpower you in the finish. Delicious!

Imagine, if you will, a soldier coming home from war. He arrives at his home, his mother waiting for him, he walks up and gives her a hug.
Thats the feeling drinking this beer gives me when I drink something else and then come back to it.
