2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle, transparent goled, with a white head which quickly dissapated. Not much aroma, very light mouthfeel with a lot of carbonation - too light and too carbonated. Middle-of-the road flavor - nothing really exciting, some light hopping on the finish, but nothing special.

(Bottle) Light goldish amber, small white head, light lacing. Aroma hops, some honey. Bitterness on tongue right from the start. Dry mouthfeeel. Clean light hoppy taste, otherwise no distinctive flavor. Sort of disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2009 The aroma is not super hoppy but has a bit of citrus. It is however balanced. The appearance is golden with a slight orange hue. The head is average. The flavor is buttery with lots of malt and a raised hop flavor. The palate is thin but it works ok with this one. Overall this one is not bad at all. But, the finish is a little metallic and astringent.

Clear yellow, much like a pills. Very thin head. Aroma is of light hops. Palate is a little fizzy and thin. Flavor reminds me of a Samuels Smithís india ale a little. Iím a little dissappointed with this beer. There a lot of good IPAs out there, but theis ainít one. This IPA taktes a little watery, has a matalic bitter taste and finishes quick with a light aftertaste. Just not that muich here

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Dark amber body. 2 finger off-white head. Good retention and lacing.
S: Generic caramel malt and non-deScript earthy hop bitterness.
T: While decent, this could be the IPA at any mediocre brewpub. Its got a generic caramel malt base, somewhat bready in parts and mildly bitter earthy, piney hops.
M: Somewhat thick and chewy. Lively carbonation. Muddled finish.
O: Eh. Not bad. But I donít really want to drink "not bad." I am spoiled, I guess.
