3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy gold-amber pour with a tall, soapy, off white head, that fades to a thick skim in a reasonable time and holds, leaving some nice lacing. Aroma offers up lots of citrus and caramel, some pine, bready yeast and mineral notes. Flavor is sweet cereal, toast, biscuit and citrus up front, followed by pine, mineral notes and some Englishy, fruity yeast esters, pretty decent bitter grapefruit bute and acidic hoppiness to the finish. Medium body, with a creamy, but slick entry and oily feel from there, moderate, but sharp carbonation and a pretty boozy feel overall for a <7%ABV IPA. Not bad, but definitely boozier than it should be at it’s ABV%, the hop profile is nice, but it really has a lot of bitterness for the amount of flavor and aroma that it has.

12 oz single bottle on sale at Supermarket Liquors. Orange and light hazy appearance with a sticky head. Old, musty aroma with notes of cardboard and fruity esters. The flavor adds medium hop bitterness, light sweetness and oxidization. A little harsh and hard to drink. Meh.

Rated based on notes taken 29 July 2012 -- A nice brew. More of an earthy IPA than the citrus I prefer.
