3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2007 Light amber/orange color, with an impressive off-white head. Very nice lacing. Inviting pine/citrus aroma. Flavors are an extension of the aroma, but add to that some malt, and then round it all out with a pleasant bitterness. Very smooth, and extremely drinkable. My glass is already empty, so I think Iíll have another.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a golden color with decent head and a little lacing. Aroma reminds me of being lost in a sea of spruce trees. One of the better tasting IPAís I have ever had but it has a bitter aftertaste and it leaves a thick residue in the mouth.

Not your typical IPA but definitely exploding with hops. Very good beer.

Not bad. Kind of reminds me of Bellís Two Hearted Ale excepted maybe a little sweeter. Lots of cascade hops. Eggshell head and orange looking. Decent.

Bottled. Very pale copper color with soft, foamy off white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is mostly piney hops with a little bready note in it. Flavor is fairly well--balanced with pine-resin hops predominating. Nice long hoppy finish. Solid.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden body, frothy white head. Citrus aromas coming from the hops. A little malt coming through to balance the bitterness. Hops and bitterness arenít over the top. A lighter, easy drinking IPA. Definitely sessionable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Goose Island Clybourn. A very nice IPA. Gold body with a good white head. Aroma of hops and citrus, a bit of sweetness. Flavor is hoppy and citrusy, very light and refreshing with just that touch of sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy dark blond colour. Sweet aroma with some tropical fruit. Plenty of malt softness in the flavour giving good balance against the fruity hops. Finish is creamy, fruity, dry.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 355ml bottle. Cloudy orange colour with a lovely smooth white head. Strong floral, fruity hop aroma. The flavour has a lot of fruity sweetness, maybe some orange but with a nice bitter IPA finish. Lots of hops with a spicy quality and by no means overly bitter. Re-rated down as not as good as last time I drank it.
