4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
6th October 2012
Cloudy amber beer, goods cream coloured head. Palate is softish and a little airy. Mild fine carbonation. Nice soft creamy malt base. Good hops - rich tangerine and orange, mild marmalade. Whisper of aniseed. Finishes soft and creamy with mellow hop bitterness. A mellow and luxuriant IPA - very nice indeed!

Worth trying if you see it around. Very sweet subtle ipa, almost more like an apa. Its defining thing to me, is that is has a sweet melon taste, almost like one of those melon vanilla ice cream things. I havent encountered that taste in any other ipas. However, it falls short of greatness because it just seems to be thin across the board.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle:   Amber with a slight copper hue, moderate to large frothy off-white head, very nice lacing.   Looks great!   Somewhat of a dull hop aroma, but moreso an old bread or stale wheaty bread aroma.   Not exactly
what I want to smell in my IPA.   Similar tongue, dull hop but moreso this musty stale bread like flavor.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Oh boy, this was pretty much a waste.   I was expecting so much more as some
of their anniversary releases are so tasty, but this IPA is just well below the standard.   Little hop aspect, but a lot of stale/musty/moldy bread.   A let down...

This is a staple IPA, so good. Solid citrus and really nice body. Floral, orange juice taste. Looks a little dark for how it taste, but who cares?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark orange color with a decent white head that faded quickly but leaves good lacing. Smells of grapefruit, caramel and toffee. Tastes of all the same things with a light hop bite.Moutheel is medium and chewy with good carbonation and a dry finish. Not bad for a east coast style ipa, one of the better ones I?ve had actually. I Still like most of west coast ipas better though.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Where to start? First off, the smell is not enjoyable. Secondly, the taste is not enjoyable and thirdly, the overall experience is not enjoyable. I am not impressed with this beer and don’t consider it a solid IPA.
