3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours a surprisingly hazy orange color with a finger of white head that has pretty poor retention.
S: Smells fairly sweet, but mostly of sweet citrus fruit such as orange and perhaps kumquat. Toasted grain and malt with a bit of bread and toffee to go along with it. Some mild grassy and floral hop notes, too.
T: Sweet just like the nose. Bread and caramel with some sweet orange and orange peel. Slightly bitter with maybe just a hint of pine. Some more of those floral and slightly earthy hop notes to it.
M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation.
D: Not what I’m really accustomed to with the American IPA being my weapon of choice for the broader style. Not awful, though.

Bottle, 5.9%. Good caramelly and grassy aroma. Clear dark golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma, with a caramelly sweetness and a good grassy hop flavour. Mild bitterness, not so strong, but clean. Well-balanced. Good mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 Bottle rating (April 2005): Golden colour. Arom is deep hops. Cleansing bitterness, woody, slightly oxidized. Flavours are rather blunt - needs a punch of pale malt or a slap of citrus to come alive.
Tap rating (from March 2000):
Fantastic aroma with big American hops. But they serve this on nitrogen and that just makes the flavours collapse into a jumbled mess. Probably much better on bottle/cask/CO2. Ar 8; Ap 2; F 3; P 2; O 6
