3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 Pour from a 22oz bottle. Clear amber brew, mid toned color, with medium off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, floral and citrus hops. Taste in nice balance of medium malt at the start with a hops forward bitterness, swallow end with pronounced floral and citrus hops. Finish is complex, bitter, and tasty. Medium body and average palate. Very good, fine IPA.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at Bel-Air in Woodland, CA. The aroma on this a little spicy, cheesy, and herbal. Mostly stale hop notes. Light toasted malts. Not much exciting here. Scantly hazy orange body with a medium, fairly strong cream-colored head present. Starts rather pointed with a good amount of bitter hop character. Again, I get this funky cheesy character to the hops. Light toffee malt sweetness in the middle, before this becomes a little more herbal, earthy, and bitter. I suppose this is well-balanced, but the aroma is severely lacking, and the hops just don’t seem as vibrant as they should. Seems kind of "dirty".

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
June 27, 2012 - bomber shared with blankboy c/o B. Clear coppery gold with a smallish lasting creamy/fizzy off-white head. Smells floral with solid cereal grain and a touch of spice, not much alcohol - light but refreshing ... not as aggressively sweet and boozy as many of their offerings. Quite bitter tasting, but that fades to a simpler mix of strong cereal grain and lighter floral/herbal bitterness, not too much alcohol. Average body, tons of carbonation, medium-quick finish, bitter linger and not very sweet at all - I kept expecting it to get boozy and/or cloying.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, amber colored body, with a big, two finger thick head full of craggy foam. The smell was very hoppy indeed, evoking grapefruit and mandarin orange slices. The taste was a citric and bitter affair, and very clean. The malt backbone was a little nondescript, and I think this could have used a bit more body. If this was ever tweaked up to a DIPA, it would be phenomenal.

Pours a pretty peach colour. Hoppy, floral aromas...caramel too. Malty and sweet flavours followed by a nice piney, hoppy finish...nice mouthfeel. Very nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Subtle carmel and nutty aroma. The color is a murky light honey. The taste was dry, less hoppy than expected and it quickly dissipated.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden with nice head. Very heavy citrus, some pine and acidity. Flavor follow aroma, with strong hop bite. Light for a double, but very good. Like this much better than Lenny's.
