3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear yellow gold / orange pour with a medium white head. Has aroma of caramel malt fruity with citrus notes, floral pine hops, yeast and mild bready notes. Taste same as aroma with some sweet orange flavors. A medium and smooth body. Has a very good caramel malt background with good citrus orange notes and floral pine hops on the end for balance. AN all around solid brew, very good well balance IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured a pretty clear, light golden color with a pretty large white head. Aroma was a lot of tropical fruit notes, citrus and a nice malt undercurrent. Pretty well balanced, plenty of pine, hops and a nice caramel malt character. Flavor is pretty darn nice. Liked it.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear golden with thin white head. Aroma is juicy citrus hops with some bready malt notes. Taste is juicy citrus hops upfront that fades into some sweet malty notes on the follow through. Aftertaste is lingering bitter pine and grassy hops. Palate is medium and somewhat sticky. Overall this is an excellent IPA, well balanced with bitter hops and sweet malt playing together nicely.

On draught at the GLBC pub in Cleveland Airport. Pours a deep gold color with a long-lasting fine-bubble white head. Medium body with pronounced hop flavor and moderated associated bitterness. Slightoy perfumy character. Overall, a smooth blend of flavors for a pleasant IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Classic IPA flavor, hoppy and bitter. This one tastes so good you'll be tempted to have another and another. But be careful; at 7.5% ABV you might lose count and regret it in the morning.

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, Iím 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. Iíve enjoyed it. Recommended.

In bottle. Citrus aromatics. Pretty classic East Coast-style IPA. Hops donít stand out, but are present in a juicy orangeness. Malts back íem. Everything comes together in quaffable pleasantness. Definitely donít taste the 7.5% abv.
