3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 Bottle. Not a bad IPA, but not enough hops for me. Pretty nice mouthfeel with a hint of caramel. More noticable malt than most IPAs. If they added more hops I think they’d have something here.

Gold, crisp-looking pour with a milkshake head. Hop and spice aroma. The flavor was similar with hops, fleshy fruit, faint anise at the end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Older bottle. Pours golden with a thin white head. Decent hop aroma, floral, citrus and soapy with a good malt background. Taste is more malty than I would’ve thought, decent floral/citrus hop taste, but not enough for my taste. Some nice caramel notes in the finish. Medium body, a little carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle dated best by 1/14/07. Amber pour w/ 1 finger white head. Medium floral hop aroma w/ a hint of spice and a nice caramel malt background. Flavor is pretty much the same as the aroma. The hop flavor has a nice juicy quality to it. Malts and hops are well balanced. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Firm hops aroma. Pretty light golden amber. Smooth for an IPA. Relies on the hops without a disctinct citrus flavor. Thought that it might have a little more kick for an IPA. But looking at it overall as a pale ale, it is very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden shade with a foamy white head. Fairly usual piney, grassy aroma with sweet tea. Heavy bitterness on the tongue chased by mandarin orange sweetness - good juicy hops. Another well done example of IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Cellar Bar, St Andrews. Hazy caramel-amber colour, bubbly white head. Hoppy, slightly sweet bitter nose, strawberry tones. Taste is sweet hops, grassy and lemony. More like and English bitter than an IPA to me. Palate is grassy hoppy dryness, long bitter finish. Rather nice.

Bottle. Pineapple-orange hops aroma. Bright orange-yellow with small head. Initially a strong sweet orange juice flavor followed by moderate citrus hops. An excellent IPA.
