3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2007 Smells like an IPA, taste like an IPA. Iíve had both draft and bottle and found I rated them the same. Medium alabaster head with an amber color. Aroma of citrus and hops. Tastes crisp and mainly bitter. It is crisp and hoppy, I canít find fault with that.

Weak IPA but decent overall. More sweet than hoppy which is strange for an IPA. Would order again but not over a competing IPA.

Poured a light amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus hops. This is definitely an east coast IPA. Not nearly as bitter as itís west coast cousins. Finish is smooth.

Nothing too impressive here... pretty average IPA. Initially quite hoppy, but fizzles at the finish.

From the bottle, standard deep gold color. Very floral as the label suggests. The hop aroma was terrific, and I picked up licorice and pine on the way down with not a whole lot of bitterness left on the tongue. The head tapered off halfway down the glass. Nice IPA for those who havenít had an IPA yet.

Pours light copper orange color with a thick white head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, and lemon. Smooth citrusy taste with a mildly bitter orange and grapefruit aftertaste. A rather enjoyable and refreshing beer.
