2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: pours with a 2Ē fluffy cream colored head. Significant lacing and moderate carbonation. Color is a reddish brown and slightly cloudy.
Aroma: floral and some citrus hops dominate the aroma with pungent hop oil very noticeable. There is also a toasted bread malt smell.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied with a sticky mouthfeel. This finishes mostly dry.
Flavor: bitter hops combine with a somewhat Ďburnt toastí flavor from the malts, but there is enough sweetness to maintain some balance. There is definite grapefruit taste along with some earthy and floral character hops. The malts hide in the middle and background with some whole wheat bread toast and hints of caramel and slight green apple.

12oz bottle. Red color, white ring. Aroma is if fruity esters, simple sugary malt, and some resin. Sharp hop bite, toasted malts with a touch of caramel malt characters. Very simple. Iíve had American Pale Ales more complex than this IPA. A bold beer for a session. (3746)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Comes out of the growler - crud, it fizzes like nobodyís business, and when I finally get more beer than foam itís a lovely clear mahogany with a VERY thick and fluffy wheat head. Dang, you just look at the growler and it starts to fizz over. Strong and hoppy aroma has an apple overtone and notes of hay and citrus plus a hint of - cloves? Hoppy flavor is woody and scarcely bitter, quite fruity with equal parts apple and sour orange, subtly malty with a snip of cloves. Yes, that is cloves. Texture is thin and watery but has good fizz. A devil of a good IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Looks exactly like the picture about 300 px up and to the left. Aroma is full of hops and malts - plenty of citrus in here. Taste is not as good as the aroma, kind of put off by the amount of malts in this one. It is a good beer, but I would rather drink Kashmir I believe.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottl.e Rusty red, still, and shiny. The thin head is nonetheless quite adhesive. This has a metallic, tangy aroma. Indeed, it drinks with a copper-tinged bitterness a bit, but otherwise is unfortunately not that much of a standout from your every-day macro lagers. (#5033, 5/25/2013)
