3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours deep orange/ruby color with a nice white head. Great lacing. Aroma is malty, ambery, bready, with some hops in there. Surprisingly malt-centric. Taste is a bit watery, slight citrus, caramel malts. Slightly bitter. Sweet malts. This is a nice, balanced IPA. Not one of the best but still pretty good.

Big off-white shaving cream head, copper body with lots of floaties. Hoppy nose with spice and citrus, some malt as well. Well-balanced malt and hops: moderately sweet, bready, with bitterness and spices dancing on the back of the tongue. Nice mouthfeel as well.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle- thanks to Jason for this brew. Extreme sediment which detracts from its appearence, nice shaving cream, tannish head. A well balanced ipa, one that does not overwhelm with hops, but certainly has some piney, citrus, and major spice notes. Spiceyness dominates towards end, with faint bitterness. Nicely done.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep, rich amber with noticable viscosity and a microcosm of haze under a full and fluffy off-white head. A thick sheet of lace spackles the glass nicely. Low zoo-pen stinkiness interrupts an otherwise well-hopped aroma of pine and florals with an alcohol undertow. Full body approaches stickiness and finishes dry. Tea bitters join pine and faint citrics to make for a well-rounded and highly-hopped IPA with only a mild caramel sweetness to temper it. This is over the top... and I like it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Clear copper, with a modest off-white head that fades slowly. The aroma is impressive, even across the table. Sharp, piny hops that cover a malty/toffee base. Medium body, with a refreshing hop bite that fades to a smoky finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge off-white head that tops a clear deep amber/orange body.
Floral hop aroma.
The flavor is smooth, slightly bitter, but not overly so, with no sticky sweetness to detract from it either. Well balanced.
A good IPA.

RBSG 07 An orange amber pour that has a nice off white head and lace. A huge hoppin frog aroma of hops and very little malt. A flavor of rich malt and hops. A very well balanced beer that is smooth and silky on the palate as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz. bottle. Fresh aroma of citrus and pine, juicy and strong, with lighter notes of toasty, sweet malts, tangerine and flowers. Medium amber color, mostly clear, with a fine, lasting, off-white head. Abundantly hoppy flavor, citric, fruity, lightly woody and nicely bitter, however a nice amount of malty sweetness remains, lending a nice balancing effect and a full, creamy mouthfeel. Finishes oily, resinous and clean with a fading blend of deep sweetness, lingering grapefruit and a clarifying bitterness, and giving a semi-dry effect. Really is nicely balanced, and features a medium-full body. Rather nicely crafted and satisfying version of an American IPA.
