3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep peach colour. Aroma is tropical fruit and hops. Taste is mild bitterness with a big malt body; fruity. Palate is crisp finish without a lingering bite. Little sticky due to prominence of malt over hops. As it warms the flavours come out more (malt brings the noise). Overall though, this brew doesn’t have enough personality to make it great.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Canals. This beer was either stale or just sucks in general when you compare it to juicy and fresh hop beers from the best brewers. Pours copper, notes of aggressive pine, spicy malts, grass and bread.

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled 12/21/12, at around 2 months old lets see what she’s got. Not much on the nose on this but slight bits of citrus creeps through with a nice subtle malt essence. Pours status quo for everybody’s ipa. Maybe a hint more ruby than some but no where bear ruby itself. The taste of hops and hops and malt come through, this beer isn’t dead yet just running the last leg of its journey. Body is solid and hops leave a slick resiney feel. Overall very enjoyable at an age that a lot of idiots think is past death for a hoppy beer. If it was a little more fresh I could see it being pretty bad ass.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Damn good IPA. Note that this was bottled in September 2011, which makes it that much more impressive. The aroma was somewhat faint with floral and sweetness. Nice copper amber color with small head. However, the carbonation was still at a good level. Medium weight with smooth character followed by crispness. The hops were piney and some citrus and very present and balanced. This held up well and was a pleasure to drink.

Bottle (from tasting session notes). Aromas of caramel, some spice, maybe raisins, apricots, melon, and some alc hits . Flavors of caramel malt, citrus, pine, artificial fruit flavor. Very fruity stuff. Smooth and tasty.

Pine like and floral hop aroma, yet very subtle. Hop explosion taste including grapefruit, lime, pine, earthy, lemon grass, and floral. A decent malty sweetness balances well
