3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A medium-bodied and well hopped India Pale Ale with a dry, fruity finish. A little heavier of an IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light Copper Color, Huge Foamy Head, Last Long and Leaves Lots Of Lacing. Strong Pine Aroma. Sweet Malt, Pine, Nice Hop Bitter. Medium Body, Nice Oily Mouth feel, Dry Finish. No sign of high ABV, well hidden 7.5%, only later it hits you. I like marketing gimmick of honoring historic figure. For one, you have to be confident that your beer is that good and you honor someone, otherwise you might be shaming the guy and he turning restless in his grave. All good with this one, I think, it is a great tribute. Second, if anyone ask me what I did last night, I’m able to say, that I studied or at very least brushed up on my history. And that would not be a lie. Hey, it is that good, that you could become a history buff in no time. Nice IPA. I’ve enjoyed it. Recommended.

In bottle. Citrus aromatics. Pretty classic East Coast-style IPA. Hops don’t stand out, but are present in a juicy orangeness. Malts back ’em. Everything comes together in quaffable pleasantness. Definitely don’t taste the 7.5% abv.

Great beer exclusive to the Northeast. Typical IPA flavor and bitterness. Left excellent lacing when poured into an IPA glass. I personally enjoy this beer more than many other west coast IPA's I have had. Great fruit and pine hints and not overly dry.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Blue Duck Tavern, DC. The pour’s medium amber with a small head. The nose is lemon sherbet, pine cone. Summery pacific hops. Some white grapes. The taste is cantaloupe and more pine. Moderate caramel. Toasty bitterness on the finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Overall, pretty pleasant stuff. A robust malt profile, sure, but I liked it. Gazza would certainly object.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle purchased at total wine in springfield va july 2013
Pours clear orange with a small soapy white head. Nose is very catty hops sweet citrus with sime musty wet grain malt notes. Flavors are mostly citrus and stale malt. The bottle is only a couple months old and it tastes it. Really a very boring ipa that suffers from cloying sweetness and not enough hops. Some harsh resinous bitterness long in the finish. Not balanced and sloppy.

Pours a dark orange with a finger width head. Hoppy aroma. Tastes bitter but a little funky. Not the greatest

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle, Kroger, $8.99/6. Golden-amber, perfect creamy off-white head dissipates into nothing; medium lacing. Strongly bitter aroma of citrus, grass, fruit, flowers, bread, caramel. Flavor is very fruity with light, natural caramel flavors and a sharply bitter but just balanced finish. Medium body with lively carbonation. Excellent IPA.

Elle est blonde et légèrement voilée, coiffée d’une mousse qui se résorbe lentement en s’accrochant au verre et en lui laissant une dentelle écumeuse. Un nez floral et fruité. Un goût d’agrumes, d’herbes et de résine de conifère. L’amertume tient un temps en bouche tout en lui donnant un arrière-goût intéressant. (692-100613)
