3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2010 22 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines. Pours a clear amber color with a big, rocky, eggshell white head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus, caramel, pepper, pineapple, and dust. Flavor of grassy hops, caramel malts, dust, grapefruit citrus and other fruits, and pine. Good balance of sweet and bitter. Bitter finish. Light-medium bodied, with a malty, earthy mouthfeel. Not bad but a bit overrated. Re-Rate, 10/12/10: I tried this again, as it was shared by a buddy at The Royale the other night. Not a whole lot new to add, except it’s a disappointing beer, given the reputation. Maybe it’s just this year’s batch, but there’s a lot of soap in this.

Pours an amber-copper, with medium head (nice lacing). Aromas of malt, grass, citrus. Flavor is very bitter, with nice backbone of sweetness. Some grassiness, a touch of citrus. Pretty good overall.

22 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a beautiful light gold with a one finger head that steadily dissapates. The taste was quite impressive. Very, very fresh hop taste with little bitterness. Impressed, would get again and recommend.

Just didn't hit the right notes with me, or fell short of expected. Not that it wasn't good, it just wasn't above many others in the same type of fresh IPA.

Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma has light grassy Spice and a bit of fruitiness. Flavor follows suit...delicate, balanced and clean...earthy and tea like bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry yet hoppy/fruity finish. Clean and refreshing beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very fresh bottle pours a clean clear gold with white fizz. Very nice earthy malty hop aroma. The flavor is a little malty with a nice citrus and a drying floral lightly piney hop. Overall decent, a nice clean pale ale with a slightly bold American hop profile, nicely done but seems slightly thin at times for 6.3%.
