3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz Bottle. The pour was a medium copper orange with an average (1-2 finger) almost white rocky head that receded slowly, down to a large puddle and large collar with excellent full sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a grain malt, floral and grassy hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a mild fruity ester (pineapple I believe).
The taste was lightly sweet and a tad bitter with a touch of caramel and a light fruitiness pretty much throughout, with the finish being much more on the bitter hoppy side with pronounced bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted a long duration following the swallow, with a lingering grapefruit bitterness left behind.
Mouthfeel was just past light in body and mildly dry in texture with a somewhat mild carbonation.
Overall this was a smooth and tasty IPA, with a good balance between the hops and the mild caramel sweetness, which definitely allowed for a very enjoyable drinking experience...

Bomber shared pours a medium dark orange/copper color with white head. Huge hop nose with solid malt backbone. The flavor is hop forward and backward and everything else good. You can tell its dry hopped. This is a solid ipa with lots of great flavors.

Orangée est sa robe embrouillée. Sa mousse connaît un départ canon. Elle s’affaisse pourtant rapidement et décide, dans son départ, de marquer mon verre. Les parfums qui s’échappent de ce dernier me font véritablement penser à une marmelade caramélisée. Pas mauvais mais du côté malté de la chose. En bouche, je perçois du grillé, du doux, du caramélisé et beaucoup de fruité et de conifères. C’est bon et, finalement, le houblonné l’emporte sur le sucré. Au palais, la sensation est bien aimée avec un corps huileux et des bulles prêtes à nettoyer. En arrière-goût, l’amertume est légèrement pliée tandis que l’orange déchiquetée et la résine de sapin s’unissent pour créer un effet asséché.

Bottle from a sampler pack from Hop City. Pours a transparent amber with a thin layer of beige head. Arms of floral hops and oranges. Taste is upfront with the bitterness but settles into a nice citrus balance.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 6-11-2012 (Bottle) The appearance is an off-white medium sized semi-fizzy head with a short retention, amber hazy body, fast rising, fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is pine, grapefruit, citrus, and grassy hops. The flavor is very bitter, pine, citrus, grapefruit hops, caramel malt, and has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is a hop head beer! The hops are upfront in the aroma and flavor as they should be for this beer style. It is too hoppy tasting for this non hop head, but it is worth trying.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ PartySource / Bellevue KY --- Clear dark amber, thick off-white head, mottled bands of lace. Taste is clean sweet malt that grows in the palate, adding, first citrus, then more piney, hops. All good, so far. The weakness comes on the finish, which in my bottle, tasted more and more like pencil wood and graphite shavings. Not good.

Pours amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is a beautiful blend of citrus, pine, exotic fruits, and malts. Taste is syrupy pilsnerish malts taking the lead followed by the fruity-pine hop flavors. The finish is long with a gritty bitterness. Overall, this echoes of other HeBrew libations in its malt character - one that they do so well. Nice.
