2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells like grapefruit and pine, what a shocker. Amber with decent head. Thin mouthfeel. One dimensional malt flavor is completely dominated by citric hops. Where is this frutiness I have been hearing about? Hops won't go away, even after the glass has long been emptied. Should come with a white and black generic American IPA label on it with a caution: This beer lacks creativity or character. BTW, if you are looking for a great IPA from this region, get the Bells Two Hearted Ale listed to your right.

Bottled. Good mild IPA from Goose. Decent gold/yellow color, light but fomay head. Hoppy aroma, but not over-powering. Same on taste. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of my favorite IPAís and itís pretty affordable at that. Great aroma of spicy, floral and just a hint of citrusy hops. Flavor is nice and malty but balanced well with a very clean bitterness. Palate is very nice... Itís easy to put a few of these away.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2010 Pours a moderately cloudy golden with a medium white head. Floral aroma on the nose with citrus and caramel. Nice hop flavor up front, but not too bitter. A slight sweetness in the finish. Not one of the hoppiest IPAs Iíve had, but still a very solid offering.

Sweet malty with some fragrant hops. Rather hoppy, well balanced. Small bubbles on the palate with smooth texture

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice sweet citrus aroma, but it dissipates quickly and turns a little oniony as it warms. A slightly astringent burnt carmel flavor is soon swallowed up by a more astringent bitterness. Itís not bad, certainly drinkable, and better than most mass market beers. But itís not nearly balanced or any real "hop loverís dream." There are so many more tasty choices out there; why bother?

As an IPA fan, I was impressed with this beer. It had a little more maltiness than I expected, but the degree of hopping was very nice. A good balancing act, according to my palate...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber with a thick frothy off white head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, caramel, pine, and light bread with a hint of spice. Medium velvety body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Flavor of bread, orange peel, grapefruit, biscuits, caramel, and pine with a hint of spice and leather. Hoppy, but not as ridiculously overdone as with some American IPAs. Good.
