3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, golden color with minimal white head. Aroma is nice mix of hops (citrus, pine & floral) and malt. This sort of reminds me of a weak 90 Minute IPA in both taste and aroma. Taste is similar with a nice citrus flavor along with some sweet malt and a bitter finish. The body is light to medium. Overall this beer is very clean and smooth but I prefer something a little more substantial.

Had a six pack from race track watching the national championship game. While this beer food not get a great rating it has a nice subtle hop aroma that is unique. Taste is sweet and citrus. I would drink again. Good session beer

Poured from the bottle into a glass. A nice ale very easy to drink. Had as part of a variety pack and this was my fav of the three. A very light IPA

Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish copper, rocky head. Woody and mild spicy hop nose, mild alcohol. Pleasant toffee and resin hop start to the beer and finishes dry with a spicy lingering hop flavor. Some metallic notes in the finish. Medium body, Medium driankability. "Second 6er on the cincy trip."

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 golden amber color nice hop aroma, fruity, apple maybe?? good hoppiness well balanced, delightful (9-20-2005)
pungent hoppy aroma comming from what i conjecture to be fuggle or willamette aroma/dry hops. a little underlying grapefruit citrus, but mostly just nice english dirty spicy hop flavor and smell. I should get this more often. finish is dry, but not too dry. the malt plays a supporting role, but is not forgotten. there is just enough to give a little chew and contemplation before pounding the rest of this quenching elixir.

Golden color with a thin white head. Nice hoppy aroma, with a hint of caramel and vanilla. For the money ($5.99 in my neck of the woods) this is a very good IPA.

From the bottle. Amber and orange colour, nice aroma, delicious floral and fruity notes. Hoppy pine and citrus after taste. An understated classic IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow this is pretty good.
I agree that if it wasn't for other truely outstanding IPA's such as Three Floyds Dreadnaught, this would be at the top of the list. It's close to it though. Has a nice aroma, poured nice dark golden color with a slight head remaining through the glass. Nice lacing along the way as well. Great flavor with hints of grapefruit. Good carbonation. This is another outstanding beer that you must try if you like IPAs, which are now part of my favorites list as I seem to have been getting really good ones lately. Do not pass Go, Just GO, and get some of this.
