3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy copper coloured body with a noticeably orange hue. Medium sized white head. Had this beer on a handpull and regular draught. With the handpull, the floral aromas came out more, and the beer was slightly more carbonated. Taste of grapefruit, soft pine, toffe- finishes almost semi-sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At the Madison location. Amber color with a thin head. Nose of caramelized malts kinda old with a good dose of hops. Sweet malts caramelized with a light bitter finish. Ok. Reminds me a lot if IPAs I had about 5 years ago. I prefer IPAs to be a little less malty and more crisp.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
I can taste some hops, but there?s a lot of malty richness and sweetness that I really don?t care for in an IPA. The old glory pale is much hoppier and just much more enjoyable. I wouldn?t order this IPA again. That being said, it?s not terrible by any means, just far from what I want in my IPA.

On tap at Great Dane Fitchburg. Clear amber with a thin tan head. Aroma of citrus and caramel with a touch of resinous hops in the background. Taste is of citrus and floral hops with their balancing friend called caramel. Mild bitterness, ‘twas okay.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Doty location, and served to a logo pint glass with a hazed, orange/amber hue, good froth to the off white/cream head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The nose was bright citrus, with a resiny/pine edge, and a touch of malt sweetness. Medium bodied, with a moderate but "lingering through the finish" hop bitterness that brought some pleasant dryness along for company.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Great Dane, it is a spicy, herbal sort of IPA, not a bitter bomb by any means.

On tap at the downtown brewpub 8/8/08: Pours a slightly hazy copper orange with a thin ring of white head. Aroma of fresh grapefruity hops and lightly sweet caramel malt. Body starts fairly full with good sweetness and fresh resiny hops. Well-balanced and quite drinkable, a nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Full, sticky body. Kind of a thick, orange haze. Very hoppy (pine, citrus) with a woody aftertaste. A little astringent in the finish. Pretty good.
