Pours a hazy golden amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has light stonefruit, tea, and sweet maltiness. Flavor has some stonefruits and melon followed by caramel and a buttery note...toffee and earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/bitter with a touch of tropical fruit...lingering.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light gold, white head. Aroma is grassy, Body is light. Flavor is grass, slightly floral, an early and pungent hop bitterness takes over, one which I consider a flaw and associate with oxidized beer. A pleasant bitterness lingers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not sure this is really the same beer as the listing, as the menu description at the Media location calls this "a classic English IPA". Golden color, nice lacing. Sweet grainy type malt, earty-type hops. Distinctly European flavors...and one of the better attempts I’ve had the type. Well done.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thin white head atop of a hazy copper gold hued body. Nose is faint with citrus and grainy malts. Medium bodied, astringent. Lame hop flavors, lightly herbal and strained maltiness. Dry, bitter finish was astringent and seriously lacking. An all around lousy IPA. @ $5.75 a pint i was truely shocked. Not sure how they can foist this lousy product on the public and get away with it? Shoulda went with the dubble they were offering. Sad.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
20100104 Lighter golden color with frothy white head that sticks to the glass in clumps. Beautiful. Light, somewhat grassy aroma with demure grapefruit notes and french bread. Nothing in the aroma would predicate the burst of hops that attack the palate. Soapy, astringent, and brutally dry. Pithy as can be. Very light cracker malts. Finishes scrapingly bitter. Yikes! Fun stuff. Of the sampler, this is the one I bought a pint of.
